Find answers to our most Frequently Asked Questions.
Do you wear a pad with incontinence underwear?
Our super absorbent pads are designed to be worn with regular underwear. They contain an adhesive, waterproof backing that sticks to regular cotton briefs. If you’re looking for a pad to wear with incontinence underwear, look for our Booster Pads, which are similar to incontinence pads, without the waterproof backing. Booster pads allow for liquid to flow through to any brand of incontinence underwear.
How does incontinence underwear & pads work?
Incontinence underwear and pads work by quickly absorbing large amounts of liquid away from the body and locking it into a super absorbent core. While incontinence pads are designed to be worn with regular underwear, incontinence underwear is meant to be worn alone under the clothes.
Can you use period underwear for incontinence?
Period underwear and incontinence underwear share some similarities in terms of design, but they are very different when it comes to construction and absorbency levels. Period underwear typically absorbs 25 mL of liquid, or one-tenth of a cup. Because Market incontinence underwear is designed to hold over 1400 mL of liquid, or 6 cups. Individuals with moderate to heavier leaks may choose to wear incontinence underwear instead of period underwear to prevent leaks and maintain proper hygiene and comfort.
Can I wear incontinence pads overnight?
Yes, you can wear incontinence pads overnight. Incontinence pads are specifically designed to provide protection against urinary leaks and are suitable for use during both daytime and nighttime. Consider using an Overnight Pad, specifically designed for overnight use. These pads tend to be longer and more absorbent, providing extended protection and minimizing the need for frequent changes during the night.
Are incontinence supplies covered by Medicare?
Unfortunately, Medicare Parts A, B, and D do not currently offer coverage for any absorbent incontinence supplies or hygiene items. This includes things like diapers, pads and guards, as well as wipes and other incontinence skincare. However, there are some Medicare Part C, also called Medicare Advantage, plans available in various parts of the country that offer OTC benefits, which may extend to incontinence supplies, including diapers and hygiene products. Medicare Part C plans are offered by private insurance companies with Medicare approval, and they are only available in specific areas.
