Women Managing Incontinence Have Unique Needs and Solutions

Just as recent findings on bacteria in women’s bladders may help doctors treat urinary problems, manufacturers of incontinence products also help meet the unique needs of women. Read on to learn how.

Loyal University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine announced Oct. 17 the results of a study showing women with common forms of urinary incontinence have various bacteria in their bladder, which may differ based on type of incontinence. These findings may help more effectively treat women with incontinence.

In recent years, manufacturers of adult diapers and other incontinence products have recognized that women (and men) want to feel normal and attractive at every age. Because our business is based on enhancing normalcy and dignity, we are committed to carrying products that help women get on with their lives and feel better doing it.

Here are just three areas where products have made great strides in meeting the unique needs of women:
  • Absorbent undergarments women can actually wear under any clothing, even fitted formal wear. An example is Depend Silhouette Underwear for Women, which offers absorbency and odor control in a slim-fitting, clothlike brief.
  • Machine-washable incontinence panties that save money while helping women get on with their lives, such as the Fanny Pants.
  • Skin care products that cleanse, moisturize, and protect to help women feel confident and beautiful at any age.
