case study 1
Case Study 1

“My boyfriend and I don’t go out very often because of my problem. If we do go out, let’s say to a departmental store, the first thing that I look for is the toilet. If I can’t find one, I leave the store. That’s how serious the problem is.”

Devi, 27 years old

case study 2
Case Study 2

“I visit the toilet frequently during the day – about 10 or 12 times, I think? And at night I wake up 3 or 4 times just to go to the toilet. I used to think that if I go to bed later, I wouldn’t have to get up so often. But that’s not true.”

Michelle, 36 years old

case study 3
Case Study 3

“It’s so embarrassing. I see the lady who cleans the toilet more often than I see my colleagues or my boss. Because I am away from my desk so often, I always get these looks from my colleagues who think I’m lazy or trying to skive…I’m just too shy to tell anyone the truth.”

Ahmad, 53 years old

case study 4
Case Study 4

“Having this problem is really bothersome! For instance, I totally avoid taking the bus or the MRT because I can’t ask the driver to stop when I suddenly have the urge to go to the toilet, can I? Also, I always wear dark clothing and carry extra pads wherever I go – just in case I leak suddenly.”

Mdm Tan, 67 years old
