Improvements in Men and Women's Incontinence Supplies

It's really gotten better. 
When I was first diagnosed with incontinence I worried I would be stuck using a one size fits all, oversized baby diaper. Being totally unfamiliar with the wide variety of incontinence products on the market today I wrongly assumed I would have to wear a bulky, ill fitting, and poorly absorbent incontinence undergarment if I ever wanted to leave my house and carry on with the things I love to do. I thought of the clothes I would never wear again and the embarrassment which awaited me when I was sure my incontinence undergarment would fail or just the smell would give my secret away to coworkers and friends. You can’t imagine my surprise when I found out none of my worries were real and I would be able to manage my incontinence both discreetly and comfortably!

How to know which is the best product for your needs

One of the most important strategies is to have the right incontinence product to use whether you are looking for incontinence pads or adult diapers.When you are able to find the right incontinence supplies for your needs then you can continue on with the activities you enjoy comfortably all the while managing your incontinence discreetly.
Consumers wasting $130 in trial and error mode

Today, there are more choices of incontinence products than ever before. However, with all the choices comes confusion about which incontinence products will work best. In a recent study, Kimberly-Clark, makers of Depend and Poise brands, discovered those buying incontinence products for the first time, waste $130 on average in trial and error mode. That’s about 10 bags of products which can’t be returned, once opened. This means consumers are often stuck with an incontinence product which doesn’t provide them with the highest levels of protection against leakage and accidents.

Make choosing incontinence supplies easier

That’s why The CareGiver Partnership has taken steps to help make choosing incontinence supplies easier. They offer an incontinence product sample service to help you avoid the costly mistake of ordering a case of product which does not meet your needs – risk free. They offer over 100 different samples-brands, styles, sizes, and absorbencies to choose from. The cost is only $3.49 for shipping. The brief video below explains how their Try Before You Buy sample service can help you avoid the costly mistake of ordering a case of product which does not meet your needs.

When I discovered there was a much wider variety of incontinence products than I imagined or remembered (not that I placed close attention to them), I began to research to see what was different. To my surprise, I found there had been numerous improvements in men and women’s incontinence supplies which would help me to manage my own incontinence confidently. Here are 3 of the major improvement in men and women’s incontinence supplies.
  • There are now incontinence supplies for both men and women. Most makers of incontinence supplies understand men and women have very different needs when it comes to incontinence supplies. Incontinence supplies for men have the protection up front where it is needed most. In addition, both men and women have different styles to choose from which allow men to wear their incontinence undergarment even under the snuggest clothes while women can choose from more feminine styles. Each gender also has different sizing which more closely corresponds to the general sizes of men versus women. 
  • There is a wider variety of absorbencies for both men and women. Another major improvement is the wider range of absorbencies in almost all incontinence supplies. The reality is not all incontinence is the same. Some people will only need light protection for slight leakage while others will need more protection against a complete loss of bladder and/or bowel control. Today, you can choose the right absorbency for your specific needs and you won’t be stuck just having to use what is available even if it's not right for you. 
  • There is odor control which makes using men and women’s incontinence supplies more discreet and comfortable. Studies have shown one of the major concerns for those individuals who are experiencing incontinence is the telltale odors. Today, there is no need to worry about this.. Many incontinence supplies have built in odor neutralizers which mean you can use your incontinence supplies with confidence knowing you are being discreet. 
Even when you have an idea of what incontinence products you are looking for it can still be overwhelming. That’s why the free & easy Incontinence Product Finder was developed. It saves you time, money and frustration by making it easy to sort through hundreds of products - fast. The video below explains how it works. Questions?
