Whether you have occasional light leaks or frequent, larger amounts all at one time, wearing the right protection can make all the difference. And the right absorbent product is not just about keeping you dry, but the confidence that comes with knowing you’re protected—no worries! Fortunately, there are options that have you covered no matter what your leakage incidents.

The good news is, finding the right product to meet your needs is easier than ever. Three levels of questions can help determine your best solution.

What level of protection do you need? The frequency and amount of your leakage determines the absorbency option you’ll need. Consider whether your leakage is light, moderate or heavy and seek out products labeled to match.

Be sure to choose a product that is specifically designed for bladder leakage. Feminine pads are not designed to lock in urine and protect you the same way modern bladder leakage solutions like Depend® brand products.

What activity level reflects your lifestyle? If you’re an active woman, you’ll want a product that protects during any fitness activity and wherever your day takes you. Choose a product that’s both easy to carry and easy to change. If you’re less active, there are convenient solutions that fit your lifestyle, too. Our product selection tool makes it easy to find the right product.

What fit will provide the best comfort level? Men and women have different needs so choose a product made specifically for your female body. Products also come in a variety of sizes to further assure the right fit and comfort.
