|Buying Incontinence Pads|
- Small insert incontinence pad-These are the smallest and thinnest incontinence pads. They are usually rectangular and can be worn discreetly with almost every type of clothing. This type of incontinence pad is most often used alone to manage light incontinence.
- Shaped incontinence pads-This type of incontinence pad can be referred to as a medium incontinence pad. This type of pad is most often used for greater protection then a small insert incontinence pad can provide. The shaped incontinence pad will fit closer to the body and provide greater protection. They can be used alone or in conjunction with an incontinence undergarment for the highest levels of protection against leakage and accidents.
- Large shaped incontinence pads-This type of incontinence pad is meant to provide the highest levels of incontinence protection. They tend be bigger and bulkier then other types of incontinence pads. They also have a much higher degree of absorbency and are often the best choice for anyone who is dealing with moderate to heavy urinary or bowel incontinence. This type of incontinence pad is always used with another incontinence product such as incontinence underwear or adult diapers.
