Finding the right incontinence product to address your symptoms can feel a little daunting, especially if you’re only familiar with old-fashioned adult diapers. Many people think that adult diapers are the only solution for adult incontinence – but that’s not the case! The products that help manage incontinence symptoms have improved significantly. Now, there are a range of incontinence products designed to meet your specific needs, whether you experience occasional drips or full bladder loss.
Here’s a guide to help you make sense of what’s what on the shelf at the store:
- Light drips - liners
- Small spurts – light and moderate pads
- Streams – heavy pads
- Sudden gushes – extra heavy pads
- Large gushes (up to a full bladder) – extra heavy pads or underwear
Liners are thin and flexible, similar to the feminine hygiene pantyliners you may be familiar with, but with more absorbency. Liners are great for those small little sprinkles that can happen when you cough, sneeze, or exercise. ALWAYS DISCREET liners help you feel fresh and dry all day - they neutralize odors and protect you better than period liners.
Pads are great for heavier bladder leaks, like spurts or streams. ALWAYS DISCREET Pads are thin and comfortable, and a lot less bulky than adult diapers so you can be comfortable and confident wearing them under your clothes. With a super absorbent core, they help lock liquid and odor deep down to keep you dry throughout the day. Pads come in several absorbencies and lengths depending on your needs.
Unlike what you may think of as a typical incontinence adult diaper, ALWAYS DISCREET Underwear is comfortable and fits smoothly under your clothes – so no one will notice. They have a secure fit and a fast absorbing core to protect against heavier urine leaks, like gushes or full bladder loss. ALWAYS DISCREET Underwear is perfect for long trips or when you don’t have fast access to a restroom.
ALWAYS DISCREET offers a range of liners, pads, and underwear, specifically designed for bladder leakage. All incontinence products are super comfortable, with a super absorbent core that turns liquid and odors to gel, for the perfect combination of comfort and protection. Better yet, they are all designed for complete discretion.
In addition to urinary incontinence products, you may want to consult your doctor about medical treatments, like pharmaceuticals or surgery, to help alleviate your symptoms.
Don’t let the stigma of adult diapers deter you from getting the protection you really need. Hopefully now you know what to look for when you get to the store. Adult diapers are not the only solution, and ALWAYS DISCREET liners, pads, and underwear are far from old-fashioned!
