I have been diagnosed with UC for over 10 years, in the past 2 years it has flared up again and I have undergone all types of treatment including 4 colonoscopies. I am now on another treatment (Humira) so we will see what results this may bring. My main issue is the constant bathroom breaks I have to take, expecially in the mornings, I eat all the right foods and drink plenty of water so not to aggravate the condition however I have suffered embarassing "leakage" when out and I really don't know what to do about this. I really dont want to start wearing "special" underwear but it looks like I may have no choice. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Instead of Depends, buy some panty liners like Poise. I get two packs, one with wings, one without and use one of each side by side. I also only wear black or dark blue pants.
