View Full Version : Incontinence pads ?
Aaaah gotta love this *sigh*
Does anyone know how the cloth pads would cope with being used for ooopses lol.
I hate that im having to use Poise so much & figure if i could use cloth that would be way easier !
Thing is normal menstrual pads dont work with urine leakage so im wondering if this would be the same with cloth ?
Anyways im too lazy too look so cmon has anyone got the info for me :p
Check out www.outrageouscloth.com.au (http://www.outrageous.com.au)
Wrong link sorry hold on.. OK fixed.
They do cloth pads and specify which ones they think would work best for this. :)
Don't be ashamed, we all have to deal with this at some point of another.
Cloth pads are a VERY good, environmentally safe, cheaper (in the longer run) and easier to manage option. :yes:
Cloth will absorb anything, so it won't be any different.
Hi Sorry to here any one being incontinent I had a work accident with my back and started to just loose only little bubles. I tried only period pads but they dont work as urine is thiner and ofcourse there is the smell I went through so many panty liners everything I could get my hands on I used tena that was good for leakage but since 1994 my incontinence had got worse and unfortunately yours will too. There are incontinece physios connection to womens health centres at the hospitals mine was Royal adelaide and she can show you how to use the pelvic muscles to work at efficiencty as we think we are doing pelvic excersises properly but I will bet you will get out of it a lot of information and also there are pills available for all these problems to help you. There are pills and patches. My back got worse in 2000 and now i am very bad and wear like a nappy but it is ok so I have tried many types but believe me the pads are better as we cant really smell our selves but others can and material doesnt take away the smell as the crystals in the incontinence pads and its terrible but the smell of incontinence is different that just toilet and also being in the open air as such. Ring the information centre on the pads in the supermarket and they will send you out a couple of samples to see how you go with out paying for ones you may not use but I do recomend you see a urologist for him to see how you are and he will decide what you may need. I had a doctor Tucker who lucky was a Gynocologist and a Urologist and he was lovely and said you women you put up with so many things when you dont need to there is so much information out there to make it easy for every one.Men wouldnt put up with what you do and he is right He said we should only go once every 6-8 hours We unfortunately dont know how to train our bladders it needs to strengthen and if not just a litle pill. My life did change but its horrible being now 50 and incontinent both ends but you get buy and please try different pads and even there are centres that have all the aids available for the elderly have a section on items that make life easy and that as you know you dont have to be old. I use depend now but tena have many sizes and new odour control . I feel for you I hope even with my rambling I have given some information for you . Just saw the site. bye for now Dana
