If you travel with your family they probably should know of your condition. That might not be the case if you travel with a friend or colleague. Consider if it is better to tell your traveling companion about your situation- you might need their understanding, flexibility or even help during the trip. It may be easier to tell them in advance instead of in the middle of a difficult situation.
Share your travel plans with your healthcare provider well in advance You may need special medication or maybe need to switch to another product. You might also need their advice regarding some of your activities.
Food and drinks
Often a change in environment and routine affects our digestion. Avoid constipation and dehydration, which can worsen your bladder problems. Make sure to drink enough water (avoid too much caffeine and sweet drinks) and try to eat food which is high on fibers. Read more in our “Diet and Nutrition” section.
If you are not sure about the quality of the drinking water, buy bottled water.
You may also need to be careful with ice, fruits and vegetables depending on where you are traveling.
