Incontinence Aids: What's Out There?

Jul 2, 2008
Incontinence is embarrassing. It is something that you want to keep hidden from everyone. There are, thankfully, very simple ways to hide your incontinence problem from the rest of the world. This article will go over some of the more popular methods used to keep incontinence hidden from co-workers, friends and everyone else.

- Incontinence Aids: What they Provide:

A good incontinence aid is going to allow you to hide your incontinence problem, as well as stay as comfortable as possible throughout the day. Here are some of the more popular incontinence aids available on the market today:

- The Adult Diaper:

There are two main types of incontinence diapers; cotton and disposable. The cotton diapers have their obvious appeal when it comes to saving money and staying environmentally friendly. However, washing cotton diapers can be an expenditure of time and you may just not like the idea of washing your adult diapers and re-using them.

Disposable diapers are going to be nice because they will always feel fresh when you put them on and you simply throw them away when you are done. They come in many different sizes and you will have to decide which type of diaper is best for you.

- Some things to remember when buying adult diapers:

You will want to find incontinence diapers that don't make a lot of noise when you shift or walk and do your day to day activities. Also, you will want to find the thinnest and most absorbent diaper possible.

- Natural Bladder Control:

Obviously this is not going to work for everyone and some incontinence suffers will need to seek professional help. Natural bladder control includes doing specific things to lower the chances of having an incontinence issue. First, you should always have sufficient water in your body; second, you should withstand the impulse to relieve yourself for a little while to develop control of your bladder (however consult a doctor before doing this). Third, always take showers instead of baths and maintain good hygiene of the genital areas and prior to sexual intercourse.

These are the two simplest ways to deal with incontinence. Always consult a doctor before taking any medication, over the counter and otherwise, and if you have a severe incontinence problem you should consult a doctor right away.

- The Incontinence Aid Bottom Line:

The bottom line is that how you treat your incontinence problem is going to be up to you. Ultimately it is important to remember there are incontinence aids available on the web and otherwise. This means you may actually be more self-confident with the right incontinence aid and you may soon find that your incontinence issue is "no big deal."

Just remember to do the homework and research the different incontinence aids available on the market. This will save you money and embarrassment in the long run.
