How To Increase Your Bladder Control Protection

Prevail Bladder Control Pads Ultimate- 16"
While caring for my mother and helping her manage her incontinence I began to notice that the incontinence product she was using was not offering enough protection. More and more frequent changes needed to be made and often times I had to help my mother change clothes and even clean up leaks and accidents on furniture and bedding. The situation was highly frustrating and embarrassing for Mom. A friend introduced me to the idea of using a bladder control pad along with my mother’s regular adult diaper. This allowed her to continue to use the incontinence product she was used to but gain a higher level of protection and absorbency.

Prevail Bladder Control Pads-16” can help you to effectively manage your incontinence or that of someone in your care.

"I thought I was going to lose it,
taking care of my Dad." 
People all over the world are similar in many respects and dealing with incontinence is no different culturally. A Danish company has developed a pad specifically designed for bowel incontinence. Read Mary’s true story...

“I thought I was going to lose it, 
taking care of my Dad."  

Mary is a real customer who called us one day, saying that she was going to lose her mind trying to take care of her father who was experiencing accidental bowel leakage (not her words… ours - hers were much harsher). She said she had tried all the regular products sold in the stores and found that nothing worked.

She spent way too much time cleaning up and doing laundry. The biggest issue she told us was dealing with her father’s dignity. She remembers him as a big, strong man and now that she is one of his caregivers, maintaining his personal dignity is most important.

Don't let your ABL lead to NGO. 
“My irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) led to occasional accidental bowel leakage (ABL) and was really affecting my social life - not going out (NGO). Every activity had to be carefully planned in advance. I stressed just thinking about meeting a friend. This stress just served to inflame by IBS which led to more ABL.” 

IBS or irritable bowel syndrome is a condition that impacts the bowels, and leads to discomfort, cramps or pain, mucus in the stool, diahrrea, and more. While it may be controlled with medication, diet, and other factors, it can lead to ABL.
