1 in 4 men over 40 experience some form of bladder leakage (1).  The most common cause of bladder leaks is an enlarged prostate, or a medical procedure undertaken to treat a prostate issue.  Other causes include prescription medication, loss of mobility and several lifestyle choices, which you can read more about on the page Stress Incontinence in Men. If you are experiencing any urine or bowel leakage and are yet to see a doctor, you must make an appointment. The cause could be serious – and treatable.


That said, many lifestyle issues (obesity, smoking, constipation) weaken the pelvic floor muscles, reducing bladder and bowel control. Simple exercises will improve the strength and endurance of the pelvic floor, allowing you to ‘hold on’ tighter and for longer.


Watch our video above to learn some simple at home exercises designed to help men strengthen their pelvic floor muscles. With persistence, you should begin to notice an improvement in just a few weeks.
