|Manage your incontinence with the right incontinence products.|
When Susan began to have symptoms of incontinence the first thing she did was to visit her healthcare provider. While she felt some embarrassment in having to discuss something so personal, she was pleasantly surprised her doctor was able to begin testing right away in order to diagnose the underlying cause of her symptoms and formulate a treatment plan. However, when Susan’s doctor explained treatment takes time she knew she would have to come up with some management strategies in how she would handle her incontinence both at home and the office.
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 pull on underwear. 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 & 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.

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.
- What is your gender? Today, manufacturers of incontinence supplies understand men and women have very different needs when it comes to incontinence products. There are many different brands which offer incontinence products that are designed specifically for each gender. This way everyone can have the protection they need where they need it most.
- Which style fits your needs physically and psycologically? The reality is not all incontinence is the same. While one person may be dealing with slight leakage another person may have complete loss of bladder and/or bowel control. Most brands of incontinence supplies come in a range styles including liners, pads, pull-on underwear, refastenable underwear, briefs, adult diapers, male guards, booster pads and inserts, undergaraments, underpads and washable products. Here is an explanation of the various styles including pictures of each.
- What size do you need? At one time anyone with incontinence had to settle for a one size fits all incontinence product. The makers of incontinence supplies have come to understand fit is an integral part of the protection which any incontinence product needs to have. For example-when an adult diaper is too small or too large then the wearer risks leakage and accidents due to poor fit.
- How much protection do you need? The reality is not all incontinence is the same. While one person may be dealing with slight leakage another person may have complete loss of bladder and/or bowel control. Most brands of incontinence supplies come in a range of absorbencies so each consumer can find the protection level they need. Keep in mind you may want to consider one absorbency level for daytime and a heavier one for night to prevent having to make a nighttime change.
