Why Incontinence Pads Are an Effective Choice for Managing Incontinence

Find the right incontinence pad for YOU!
When someone is first diagnosed with incontinence, they often feel that their only choice for managing it will be using an adult diaper. However, this is not necessarily true. There are different types of incontinence supplies and adult diapers are only one type. Included in the variety of incontinence products are incontinence pads that can be highly effective in helping you to manage your incontinence. It is important to learn all you can about every type of adult incontinence products so that you can choose the right one to meet your needs. 

Many people with light to moderate incontinence find that they can use an incontinence pad as the main tool for helping them to manage their incontinence. Today pads are more discrete and comfortable than ever before. They are also very convenient to use which makes them a popular choice for many people with incontinence. They can be found on many different sites that offer incontinence supplies. Best of all, because there are so many choices available, every person can find the right incontinence pad in the size and absorbency level that they need. Here are so more reasons why incontinence pads are an effective choice in managing incontinence.  

  • They can be used alone or with another incontinence product. Many times incontinence sufferers with light to moderate incontinence find that they can use a pad inside their normal underwear. However, if you need more protection you may want to consider using the pad inside your incontinence undergarment. The flexibility of pads makes them a great choice for managing incontinence. 
  • They are designed for both genders. Since many people choose to use pads as their first line of defense against leakage and accidents, manufacturers have realized that men and women have very different needs when it comes to pad. This is the same when it comes to incontinence pads. Gender specific incontinence pads will have the protection where that gender needs it the most, making it a highly effective tool for dealing with incontinence. 
  • They come in a range of sizes. Not all bodies are of the same size. This makes it important that you choose a pad that fits your body and gives you the protection where you need it the most. Most products offer pads in a variety of sizes so that the wearer can choose the one that work best for them. 
  • They come in a variety of absorbencies. In addition to size, the wearer of any incontinence pad will need to consider what absorbency that they need. You will want to make sure that you have chosen an absorbency level that will protect you without going overboard. Keep in mind that while a light pad will not give sufficient protection, one that is too heavy can subject your skin to damage and be uncomfortable to wear. It should also be stressed that anyone who is considering using incontinence pads to manage incontinence should understand that their absorbency needs may vary from day-to-night and even from day-to-day.
