Guards Are Pads for Men with Incontinence

Urinary Incontinence is often untreated in men. 
Over 200 million people worldwide suffer from incontinence. While women are often the ones with incontinence because of things like childbirth, men are not an exception to this ailment. UI is often untreated in men, as they are too embarrassed to bring it up with their healthcare professional. Just because a lot of people suffer from incontinence doesn’t make it any less embarrassing.

Many men who have had prostate surgery struggle with incontinence as a side effect. A fact many doctors neglect to mention. One third to fifty percent of men experience urine leakage following surgery. Urine leakage following prostate surgery can be due to stress incontinence, urge incontinence or a combination of both.

Women have Poise pads, men have Depend Guards for Men.
