Romantic relationships are an important part of life for all of us.
As human beings, we are biologically programmed for connection. We desire partnership and decades of research supports the fact that long term, stable relationships protect against illness and prolong life. For people with incontinence, the potential of a romantic relationship can be daunting. Here are a few things to keep in mind:.
Be gentle with yourself. Managing incontinence — emotionally and physically — can be difficult. If you have someone you can talk to about it beforehand, that may help, too. Take time to develop natural affection and respect for each other before you move into anything physical.
Developing emotional intimacy before you bring up your need for protection will help you feel more comfortable discussing it. The conversation about your need for protection is one that should be had in advance and in the right environment, not right before a potential intimate moment.
Your incontinence is the result of a health concern. Take a chance. You have many facets of your personality that make you interesting and lovable to the right person.
The U. Plan for Intimacy. Addressing the practical issues and knowing how you will manage them if they show up will help you be more confident.
