6 Ways to Stay Discreet on the Go with Incontinence

Maintaining an active lifestyle while discreetly managing bladder leakage takes a little planning. These smart strategies can help you remain prepared—and inconspicuous—no matter where you go.

Make a backpack, gym bag, or messenger bag part of your on-the-go look.

In addition to carrying absorbent products, include other personal items inside, like sunglasses, a notebook, and keys so it becomes a normal part of your everyday attire. Use your bag to carry a change into a public restroom and carry it out to the wastebasket.

Keep plastic bags for disposal on hand.

Include plastic bags in your carry-around bag. The darker blue bags can mask what’s inside when you need to toss out a change in public. You can find poly bags or deodorized disposal bags in most stores or online.

Keep emergency changes in your glove box or trunk.

Store one or two Depend® Guards or Depend® for men underwear as a backup supply and don’t forget to replenish the supply when you need to tap into it.

Try adjustable underwear.

Depend® Adjustable Underwear is designed for discreet changing, often without having to remove your pants and shoes. The underwear features perforated sides that neatly tear open to make removal and application easier especially when in a public place.

Go with Guards.

Depend® Guards feature discreet cup-shaped protection right where men need it most. Individually wrapped in a cloth-like pouch, Guards can tuck away for discreet carrying.

Plan ahead.

Locate bathrooms ahead of time, especially in places you don’t visit very frequently. It also helps to set a schedule for regular changes. Above all, don’t worry that others take notice of small personal things like tossing out a bag in the restroom. Have confidence in what you’re doing and no one will think twice about your personal care routines.
