The Top Incontinence Products For Men

25% of those who are incontinent are men
Few things are more distressing or mortifying for a man than urinary incontinence. However, many men suffer from the condition almost as much as women do. Their needs are different from women as they need more protection in the front of their undergarments and it is important to have guards placed on the sides to reduce dribbling that may occur.
Incontinence is a very personal problem and many men are embarrassed by their condition to the point that they will not talk about it with others. Since everyone does have individual needs, it is important to try out a variety of products to find one that will be able to provide you with the protection you really need.

This is how many men feel
One of the top products that men can use for incontinence problems is to use guards. These are designed to provide you with protection in the front part of your underwear. Here are some of the best incontinence guard protection options:
·         Depends – these guards will offer you protection against about 9 ounces of fluid. They are shaped to fit a males body, making them comfortable for you to wear.
·         Prevail  - these guards are better for individuals that do suffer from a lot of urine leakage throughout the day. They can hold about 19 ounces of fluid, giving you a lot of protection.

Any product that you purchase needs to provide you with protection but it also needs to pull the urine away from your skin. This will help to keep your skin dry so it won’t be irritated by the urine and causes a rash.

Acti-Cuf Drip Collector
What if you have a big incontinence problem when you laugh or sneeze? This is known as strain incontinence and it occurs when there is a lot of pressure on the bladder. It will cause urine to suddenly escape without warning. You should consider using a drip collector. These drip collections will protect you from embarrassment as they collect all the urine and also offer protection against odors as well. The drip collector has an absorbent pouch and it will take the urine and then converts it into a gel. The most common brand is Conveen. These drip collectors are very discrete and they are also easy to change out, making them one of the best options if you have incontinence problems.

To find products that will offer you the best protection it helps to try out several different products. A great way to do this is to purchase some samples that help you to see what is comfortable and just how much absorbency you need.

Adult diapers are also very popular items to use, especially if you have a daily problem. It is a wise idea to consider the disposable diapers if you have to change out your underwear often. However the disposable products can become pretty expensive so it is a good idea to make sure you are able to afford them. Washable incontinence underwear may be a better option for the cost savings. Washable products are also very discrete and they are similar to your regular underwear. Here are a few products to consider using:
·         Depend underwear – comes in 3 different colors and looks just like briefs that you are used to wearing. Offers several sizes and can provide you with the maximum in absorbency.

·         ATN Tranquility – these disposable diapers are designed to last through the night. Comes with easy open sides, allowing you to easily remove them and dispose of them.
