Many men hate the idea of using incontinence products. But if they are having a problem with male incontinence, these products can really help. Incontinence products can prevent embarrassing accidents, simplify life, and increase confidence. Here’s a rundown of some product options any man dealing with incontinence should consider.
Incontinence pads and other absorbent products. While women grow up using pads, many men find the idea a little distressing. But these incontinence products can be enormously helpful. They can prevent leaking onto clothes, control odor, and prevent skin irritation. What’s more, knowing you’re protected can provide a great sense of security.
Of course, there are so many types available that one may not know where to start. The best choice depends on the symptoms. If the individual is just having occasional leaking or dribble, an incontinence pad inserted into the underwear and held in place with an adhesive strip might work. If they’re having more severe incontinence, a larger male guard or pair of absorbent disposable underwear (pullup type) may do the trick. It may take some experimentation before the individual finds a type of incontinence product that works best for their needs and feels comfortable.
Underpads can also be useful. These are large waterproof covers that add an extra level of protection against leaks when placed on furniture or mattresses. They are available in disposable as well as washable options.
Some guys don’t want to try urinary incontinence products because they feel like it’s a sign of defeat. Once they start buying pads, they think, they’ll be stuck buying them for the rest of their lives. But remember that a lot of men may only need incontinence products temporarily. For instance, if they have just had prostate surgery, using some of these products may help get them through while they are healing. Other men rely on incontinence products for a short time while their doctors figure out the underlying cause of their problems.
These products are valuable tools to help men manage incontinence and can vastly improve their quality of life.
