How do incontinence pads work?
Incontinence pads and liners are designed to provide protection against bladder leaks. They work by absorbing and locking away liquid to keep skin dry and prevent unwanted leaks. Most incontinence pads have a soft, absorbent core that quickly wick away moisture. They also feature a waterproof backing that prevents the absorbed liquid from leaking through to your clothing or bedding. Incontinence pads are disposable and come in various absorbency levels. Because Overnight Pads absorb up to 3 cups of liquid.
Are incontinence pads suitable for both men and women?
Because Market's incontinence pads are designed specifically to fit a woman's body, while Because guards are designed specifically for the male body. Due to anatomical differences in women and men, pads and guards are designed differently to ensure that maximum absorption occurs where liquid is released from the body.
How often should I change incontinence pads?
The frequency of changing incontinence pads depends on the pad's absorbency level and the level of bladder leaks that the wearer experiences. For light incontinence, you may be able to change the pad every few hours or as needed. For heavier leaks, you might need to change the pad more frequently to maintain skin health. Overnight pads, designed for extended use, can typically last through the night without needing to be changed.
How do incontinence pads differ from menstrual pads?
While incontinence pads, menstrual pads, and panty liners may look similar, they are designed for different purposes. Incontinence pads absorb a rapid flow of urine very quickly and hold a lot of liquid. Menstrual pads are designed for a slow flow and do not hold as much liquid. If you are experiencing bladder leaks and are using menstrual pads, you will likely not have adequate protection against leaks.
