Hi Hamburger,


There are several reasons why you are experiencing incontinence. The best thing to do is to speak to your doctor about it but I can give you some information that will help you ask the questions you need to ask.


The Flomax you are taking is generally prescribed for BPH, or benign prostate hyperplasia, but your doctor maybe have prescribed it for another reason.


You can read more about incontinence here at There is stress incontinence, urge incontinence, functual incontinence and overflow incontinence. There is also an article about teen incontinence written by Colin who is living with incontinence. You can read that article here.


Remember, online sites are great resources for information so that you are able to ask the important questions that will help you manage your healthcare, however they can not take the place of your doctor's solid medical advice.


I hope this helps. Please stay in touch and let us know how you are doing!
