Choosing the Right Product for Urinary Incontinence

Choosing the Right Product for Urinary Incontinence
One would be hard-pressed to find something fun about urinary incontinence, but the good news is that loss of bladder control is certainly manageable. With the wide range of products designed for of urinary incontinence, you can find a product that's right for you.

It may take you several tries before you find the perfect incontinencesupplies for you, and happily, at The CareGiver Partnership we offer the option of trying a small sample size before making a bigger purchase. Additionally, the following tips should help you when making your selection.

The first thing you will want to do is measure the amount of urine that is lost as well as the frequency with which it is lost. This will help you in selecting the proper absorbency. Incontinence pads, probably the most common product used by women for urinary incontinence or overactive bladder, come in a wide range of styles, sizes, and absorbencies. Generally, they can contain as much as 8 ounces of urine while controlling odor, and keeping the urine away from the skin.

Another, more absorbent option is incontinence underwear or adult diapers. Incontinence underwear generally have a waterproof liner over an absorbent cloth pad that can contain 10 ounces of urine or more. Overnight style adult briefs and panties can be even more absorbent. Some are washable and reusable, and manage to keep the urine away from your skin and block the odor, much like the incontinence pads. Some incontinence underwear can be pulled on and some are adjustable. These are matters of personal preference.

If you need even more protection, booster pads can be inserted into the already absorbent incontinence underwear. We carry several styles and levels of absorbency.

Additional products that can help are plastic pants and absorbent underpads to be placed on your bed. You can find these and over 500 other products to help with urinary incontinence on our website. Once you find the right products for you, you will most likely find your incontinence to be far more manageable.
