  • From night time to Day time

    Leakguy181 Apr 14 2017 1:17PM

    Hey everyone,

    I know that I was the one that was posting about my night time incontinence, but now it has been happened in the day time as wel. Now that I'm a year older it feels like I can't get a break. Should I go see a doctor about this or go ahead and buy protection? someone please help!!!

  • Depends fitted Briefs back in plastic!

    DracoAmericanus Apr 4 2017 2:32AM

    The topic says it all Depends are slowly going back to the plastic backing outer cover. I can't express how happy I am with this change, I had to abandoned all of the depends products, there 4 tape preside design would not even last a 4 hour work shift with out sliding down, felling wet and just a very uncomfortable experience, products of this type need to be plastic for many reasons, sliding down and having pee wick around the leg gathers being a huge problem, I had stopped using them because they would also give me a rash. I heard a rumor that they are reverting back to a plastic back and go back to the pre 2016 version, having found the new versions I noted the tapes are white and not clear but work exactly the same.
    So they have me back as a customer as they now have something I can use during the day/night and I never thought I could get exited about a diaper but this would be an exemption, I am so happy they now have a product again that I can use during the day with out falling apart or sliding down when I do go and use the so in e bathroom, they have a slightly different plastic that is quiet even in a office environment.
    so to end I have to say Thank You! Thank You Thank You!!!!!

  • Traveling & Hotels in Diapers

    tim749 Mar 16 2017 1:56AM

    I'm a bit nervous to fly / tsa with my diapers. I will be traveling soon, flying and staying in a hotel my first time since starting to wear diapers again. Should I ask the hotel if they can provide a plastic sheet? And when disposing my diapers should I just leave them in the trash in the room? Any suggestions for diaper management / changing is much appreciated. thank you.

  • PRICE....Are you happy with the price and quanity per box?

    HipGranny04 Mar 13 2017 11:11PM

    I really like the Depends Silhouette Briefs. They feel more like underwear and give my the confidence that I will not leak. The only problem is the price and how many are in the box. When you only get 10 in a box of the XLG, for close to $13.00 that is expensive for someone on a budget. I just purchased your value pack of flex briefs with 15 in the box on sale for $11.99. because I needed a little more affordable pack. This is my first time wearing them and I am very disappointed in this purchase. Can you please make a box of 15 or higher of the Silhouette's at a price point that is more affordable? PLEASE! I am embarrassed enough that I have to buy this product at my age, let alone having to go back every week to buy them.
    Thank you for your understanding.

  • HRT help

    Strype Feb 27 2017 5:45AM

    Hi everyone out there. I recently came out to my loving partner and friends about me being trans and so far it's been great. however I am wondering if any other trans women out there have had the issue of Spironolactone having them run to the washroom every so often due to the medication's side effect. I am also wondering if anyone out there has found a good absorbent garment to use for when one is on the road (as my job usually has me on the roads of the City of Toronto) lemme know!

    Peace out!

  • Mens' Realfit and Fitflex - curious about the diff...

    Hal6666 Nov 10 2016 7:11AM

    I’m just wondering why the men’s real fits are more bulky than the fitflex?

    First off, I love the fitflex's! I started using them almost immediately after having bladder issues, and I was elated to see that such an effective product can be so comfortable and discrete. I'm 42, very active with a 9 year old child and active wife, and I live my life 100% the same as before with these. I'm not trying to sound like an advertisement - just being honest.

    That said, I thought I’d try the realfit's for going to the gym. They’re very good and do look a lot like regular underwear when they’re on - especially from the back - but I expected them to be thinner - certainly not thicker - than the fitflex given the “just like underwear” claim. Although the fitflex don’t look like regular underwear, I actually find they feel more like normal underwear than the realfits do.

    Regardless,, both are great products and certainly make wearing absorbent underwear not a big deal. It's also nice to see that Depend has men in mind when creating these products. I wish I'd discovered them a year ago instead of being stubborn and tolerating wet underwear.

    Thanks!

  • Diapers (Briefs) and Pullups (underwear)

    UnknownWiki Oct 17 2016 5:13PM

    I have a question, I have been incontinence since I was 11, at which I wore diapers, but at that age it was Luvs and pampers, but now Depends sometimes, and Molicare or Tena most of the time, But my question is ive noticed that all of these products are called briefs or underwear, Im not understanding why that is, Diapers are nothing to do with briefs, and pullups are not underwear, why is it people have such a hard time calling them what they are? Why is it a big deal saying diapers? ive never said briefs, when my doctor asks how many briefs I go through a week, I say I dont wear briefs, I wear diapers, I have no problem saying that either, but honestly if people cant handle a simple word, then what does that say? Diapers are Diapers, Pullups are Pullups!!

  • Medical visits/massages

    MrGoose2 Sep 20 2016 9:36PM

    Has anyone had to encounter a visit with a chiropractor while wearing a diaper? They tend to push on your hips etc; and was wondering how you deal with this;since they would probably realize you have one on. Is this embarrassing for you? Also; if you had ever got a massage at a spa where you are not completely all covered? Have they seen this before; and what would you say about it? I wouldn't want to freak anyone out. If anyone works in these areas; please let me know what you think or how to deal with this.
