There are literally over 500 types of incontinence products - check out this helpful tool
After the age of 60 many adults will experience problems with incontinence. It is quite common to see women experience incontinence as they go through menopause and need to use products that help to catch the extra urine that leaks from their bladder when they laugh, cough, or sneeze. This type of incontinence is known as stress incontinence and it is the most common type of incontinence experienced by both men and women. It often happens more to women that have given birth as childbirth often causes the pelvic floor muscles to stretch out and they are not as likely to hold in the urine as they once could. The weaker muscles can not only lead to urine problems they can also cause fecal problems as well.

As far as adult diapers go, the most popular type that is chosen are the adult briefs. These diapers are very discrete and will help you to maintain your dignity as other people will not be able to tell that you are wearing the diapers. You can purchase them in disposable diapers or in reusable ones. The reusable diapers are less expensive and they are made from cotton, which helps them to appear closely to your regular underwear. These briefs are lightweight and are going to be the best option you have if you would like to find underwear that is as close to what you are used to wearing.

Protective underwear is also commonly used but it is mostly used for individuals that tend to have more urine leakage throughout the day. The padding is much thicker from the briefs and you can purchase them in a pull up diaper.

For light problems, pads and liners are wonderful options. These products allow you to wear your normal underwear, you just have to attach the pad or liner to it. It has a sticky backing so that it will stay secured in place when you are wearing the pad throughout the day.

Overnight diapers are commonly used for those individuals that have problems at night. Using the overnight diapers will allow you stay safe at night and really will protect your bedding!
No matter which type of adult diaper you choose to use you need to make sure you are using the right product for your situation. You have to look at the different sizes and styles to find one that will be comfortable for your needs and will allow you to enjoy your life without worrying about wetness and embarrassment from urinary incontinence.
