Can POISE Maximum Absorbency, Long Provide Protection for My Condition?
POISE pads' long length design is great for any condition in which urinary incontinence is a concern. Urinary incontinence affects as many as 45% of American women, and it is quite common. The causes and risk factors that lead to bladder leakage problems for women are quite varied and usually treatable. With POISE Incontinence Pads, there is no need to worry about leakage or incontinence. Some risk factors that lead to incontinency of the bladder include obesity, smoking, caffeine intake, poor glycemic control and even spicy or acidic foods, just to name a few. Reducing these habits reduce the risk of incontinence, but other life events may also cause leakage. Pregnancy, childbirth, hysterectomy, and aging can be factors as well. These factors are not as easily treatable or preventable.
How Often Should I Change My POISE Incontinence Pads, Maximum Absorbency, Long?
Some brands of incontinence pads are designed only to last up to three or five hours even when dry. Changing your incontinence pad often helps avoid uncomfortable situations of poor skin hygiene which can lead to bad odors or dermatitis and fungal infections.
POISE Incontinence Pads feature Absorb-Loc™ technology and a Dry-Touch™ layer which allow you to go longer periods without changing; however, if you are among the many women who suffer from leakage or incontinence and must use an incontinence pad, it's advisable to change often. This will help keep your skin healthy.
Most women who suffer from bladder leaks or urinary incontinence will need to change their pads quite regularly; it is recommended to do so about once every four to six hours. But you may also use POISE overnight pads' long length for worry-free sleep, confident in the knowledge that you are protected.
