Can wearing pads make you incontinent.

I'm talking about a person with moderate learning disability with scenery issues and challenging behaviour who refuses to use the toilet due to phobia and support staff have less time for positive reinforcement due to other service users needs so they resort to using incontinence pads. Do you think over time this would have an effect on the service users continence and make them incontinent? Thank you?

    Hi @bobby_basic123

    It’s great to meet you this evening!!!!!!

    Sorry but I’m not “medically trained”

    Looking at anything that we use to make our lives easier.

    The longer things are used the more that we really on them !!!!!

    I’m very sorry if this is off no use to you!!!!!!

    Hi bobby basic and welcome

    We are not able to give medical advice on the forum.

    However from a common sense point of view, the longer these are worn and no control is required then the less the body will be able to control the urge so retraining will probably be needed. Similar to how a baby is taught.

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
