Men

There is not just one, standard incontinence product for men. Men suffering from bladder leakage should understand that they have some options available to them and that there is a wide range of products that they can pick from. They don’t have to feel like their choices are stifled or that there is no option specifically designed for them.

Men experience bladder leakage and incontinence in many different ways, so there needs to be products that are especially designed to meet their needs and to give them the protection that makes them feel comfortable and confident.

Incontinence pads for men are absorbent products that can be placed in their underwear or other incontinence products. If used in an incontinence nappy or pants, then they are meant to provide additional protection. Men can use them to prevent overflow and to keep their leakage in check. If used as an insert in regular underwear, the pads will need to be replaced through the day, and they are meant for light leakage only.

Pads are generally worn to deal with light leakage, as heavier leakage will go right through the pads and overflow into whatever else the person is wearing. Anyone considering pads for dealing with their bladder control issues needs to consult with either a pharmacist or a doctor about whether pads are a good option for them or if they need something more absorbent and effective.

The right kind of pad provides absorbency where it is needed. Keep in mind that the penis can move throughout the day, and the pads are usually meant to be worn for hours at a time. The pad will need to move with the penis and provide absorbency wherever the leakage may occur.

It is also important to choose an incontinence pad that protects the skin from moisture. There may not always be the option to change the pad as soon as a leak occurs. Many people wear these pads at their work or in school, and they can’t always slip away and change out into a new pad. So, they need something that will provide some protection from moisture and that will lock the liquid away from the skin.

That may seem like it would be standard in most incontinence pads, but not every pad offers that kind of protection. Consumers should be looking for pads that will keep the moisture at bay so that they can prevent chafing, irritation and other problems. This is especially true of people who wear their pads for long periods of time.

Some of the pads are meant to be disposable, while others are designed to be washable and used over and over again. You can simply take out the reusable ones and either put them through a washing machine cycle or hand wash them. Allow them to dry and then continue to use them again and again.

For more protection, the pads may need to be switched out for pants or briefs. For less protection and less discomfort, men may want to try leaves, which are a type of incontinence product that is slightly smaller than the pads.

In many cases, men simply need to try out a few incontinence products for themselves before they find one they are comfortable with. Their doctor or pharmacist can give them some idea about what kind of pad to look for and what might work well for them, but ultimately, it comes down to what they feel most comfortable with or what provides the most protection and discretion throughout the day.
