We often welcome customers who are new to the use of incontinence products, or who have reached a stage where the occasional incontinence bout is becoming more frequent.
The majority of these are women in their 40s, 50s, 60s, who have gone thru the child birthing process and who are transitioning from female personal care products to incontinence products. Personal care products are designed to absorb thicker menstrual flow while incontinence products are designed to absorb urine – which is a very big difference in construction and application and cost. Occasional incontinence for women can include light incontinence due to unexpected sneeze / laughing / exertion urination. Men also can use new to incontinence products as their incontinence bouts become more common with age, or can be traced back to prostate issues.
New to incontinence products range from pads / male guards to gender specific incontinence products.
We strongly encourage our customers to FIRST try pads / guards – these products fit inside of underwear, are less invasive, and are much more cost effective. If pads/guards are not secure enough, or do not offer the level of protection desired, then move up to gender specific products. These gender specific products are more form-fitting, have less absorbent material, and that absorbent material is strategically placed according to gender.
