“I’m currently going through menopause and need protection from my leaking bladder. What options do I have?”
As women get older, their estrogen levels begin to decrease, which in turn, affects bladder control. Fortunately, there are various incontinence products available to help you stay dry during your menopausal years.
Incontinence pads offer discreet daytime protection against unexpected bladder leaks. Worn with your own underwear, these bladder control pads are lightweight and disposable, so you can easily change them while you’re at work, school, or other public outings. Incontinence pads are available in various sizes and absorbencies, so be rest assured that you’ll always stay protected and dry. Many women choose Poise pads due to its contoured shape and urine odor protection. Tena pads are another popular option as it features a special super absorbent material that turns fluid into gel for greater security and skin dryness.
For a more economical route, incontinence panties, such as the Wearever Seamless Panty, can be washed hundreds of times. Washable underwear look like regular woman’s underwear to help you maintain your dignity and confidence while you go about your daily activities. You can even choose from fun designs and patterns, such as floral and lace. Additionally, many incontinence pants include a sewn-in absorbent padding that adds to the underwear’s overall absorbency. From cotton panties to vinyl pants, National Incontinence offers a wide range of washable underwear for your convenience.
