    I suffer from B.I. and have to go for a family reunion on a cruiseship for seven days.!! (Im so nervous!!) Have any of you with similar symptoms taken vacation before, please offer your advice and what your experience was. Id really really appreciate I worked up even thinking about it and the trip is not until christmas time. Waiting to hear some useful tips. I only been on very short trips, have managed them OK. I just prefer to avoid anything that is more than a weekend long LOL

  • Is 46 too young?

    wavez2000 May 2 2017 2:45PM

    I wear a combination of pull up's underwear and moderate longs and over long longs. Most of the time I wear pull up's to bed or on days off. The pads are for work or when I go out in public. Sometimes I can hold my urine, but like even if I go to the bathroom through the day, when I get off work it's like my bladder has a brain and by the time I get home im going into the pad and onto my pants. Or I feel the urge and I wake up once or twice and hour sometimes and even with pull up's on I feel it coming out I sit there and try to hold it in and when I get up sometimes I make it sometimes I dont. Sometimes I dont feel urges, I think it's blood sugar and my mother had this and a diabetic bladder. I have this it seems. Sometimes I can hold my urine all day long, and when I get home from work or grocery shopping or w hatever it happens. I can be sitting at home watching tv and im fine one second then the urge hits me and I have to squeeze my legs together to try and get up.

    sometimes im barely leakin and I go into the day and night ok, sometimes Im not. I never have t hese issues in public or on the job, it's after I get off work or go home. anyway you know what im saying.

    my mother wore pads and never wanted to wear p ull up undies. I dont see anything wrong with it. yet I am a bit insecure.

    is it normal for a 46 year old to have half normal half weak bladder. I am over weight due to poly cystic ovarian and I bleed badly so I wear incontinence pads and undies for thsi reason or started too, then I got type 2 that I cant afford to take care of, and I got what my mother called a semi diabetic bladder.

    is this normal. Someone help me to understand what is going on.

  • night defender

    Gaely Apr 29 2017 6:26PM

    I have recently started using the new overnight depends called night defender , I find them far less effective and not as comfortable e when wet, The previous night depends had more of a gel lining that count weigh and hold a huge amount of liquid. The new ones are like cotton of whatever material that bunches up and leaves areas unprotected,,,,,much like the cheaper off brand underwear does. , I was totally confident during the day to wear a nighttime depends to take me through the day. But no more, I end up having to carry an extra one just in case the other did not leak. I am very disappointed in this new night defenders, Same cost, inferior materials. Not sure what to do with this.

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

    HipGranny04 Mar 13 2017 11:08PM

    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.

  • Unhappy With The NEW Sillouette

    UnhappyWithNewSillouette Feb 17 2017 3:05AM

    Are you unhappy with the revamped new Silhouette? I am. The new beige product is thinner and no longer able to hold enough urine to get me to the toilet. MY experience with the old peach colored Silhouette was positive. It fit well, held urine and did not leak through the seat of my pants. I felt so confident and happy that I had them to help me. Depend has rebated me $70.00 for apology purposes, but I valued the well fitting old style and am so disappointed, How about you?

    I live in Florida and it is very humid. When I walk the front part comes unglued from the panty part and sticks to me. Very uncomfortable.
