Management of female incontinence has evolved in a scientific way in recent years. For men, however, strategies based on female research are loosely adapted and applied. Containment for male incontinence has some advantages over female containment. Pelvic floor exercises have also been adapted from the female model to the male without evidence basis. This paper presents a brief overview of the history of incontinence management and a discussion of the development of pelvic floor exercises for men.
