Choosing The Right Incontinence Supplies

Your bladder can adjust to the usage of a catheter. The usage of incontinence supplies is something that is considered for urination and bowel movement. The difference between an incontinence supplies from baby products is that they are supportive and discrete and are not designed to be like a baby diaper. Instead they are designed specifically for each gender and they can come in a variety of forms. The goal is to give you back your dignity by shopping for incontinence supplies. How do you choose the right incontinence supplies for your situation? A lot of it will be based on your need along with gender and budget.

Some people are experiencing incontinence in their 20s but the majority of women that deal with incontinence are passing their menopausal years. There is a reason why women suffer from incontinence more than men and that comes down to their genetic makeup and the way in which the pelvic floor muscles have been stretched out over the years. If you have given birth, your chances of developing incontinence will be much higher. Since there are close to 20 million people that suffer from incontinence it is easy to see why there are so many products in the market now. This makes buying incontinence supplies much easier than it used to be as you can get form fitting underwear and you aren’t stuck with the option of just a diaper. Some people find that they only need a small pad to wear throughout the day as it works well at capturing the urine that is leaking throughout the day.

Using incontinence products like pads will allow you to maintain your dignity as most people will not even know you suffer from incontinence. These products are so discrete that they do not make noise or give out a bulky appearance. The purpose of these products is to cover up incontinence but to also help you live your life fully again. You will find that they often come with protective liners which help to catch any excess urine that could escape from your bladder. In addition to this you may also see that these products can come with scents as well which are beneficial to masking the smell of urine and other things.

When it comes to picking out incontinence products it also helps to understand if you want to have products that are disposable or if you would like to choose products that you wash and use over and over again. The disposable products are beneficial as you can toss them after an accident and you really don’t need to worry about sanitary issues as they go right to the trash can: However if you are wearing the pads and diapers each day you may see that the washable products are beneficial as they will save you money. Plus you won’t need to worry about running out of the products as you can order plenty of pairs of underwear to keep on stock.

To figure out which incontinence supplies you need it helps to understand the type of incontinence you are suffering from. People that are dealing with stress incontinence may not leak as much and can find relief in using some pads versus using the diapers. Individuals with incontinence at night may need to use diapers as their bladder can involuntarily release all of the urine that it is holding.
