Attends Adult Protective Underwear – Get FREE Shipping

Roughly 12 percent of Americans are age 65 and older, and that number is expected to grow to 20 percent by 2030. But aging doesn’t mean slowing down. On the contrary, people are living longer and enjoying more active, healthy lifestyles. The baby boomer generation is traveling, exercising and spending time with children, grandchildren and friends.

This has created a growing demand for adult incontinence products that allow a high degree of  mobility and freedom. Soft, comfortable and discreet, Attends® Protective underwear are perfect for active mature adults and for people of all ages who experience incontinence.

Worn under clothing just like regular underwear, Attends adult protective incontinence  underwear have a cloth like feel and a slim profile with a comfortable, stretch waistband. They are made of breathable material that allows excellent air flow to promote dry, healthy skin, while a moisture proof inner layer prevents leakage. Our adult protective underwear offers the ultimate discreet protection for moderate to heavy incontinence – giving users the freedom to live life  with confidence.

Types of Incontinence in Women – Get FREE Shipping

People use a lot of different terms to describe incontinence, including: sensitive bladder, bladder leakage, overactive bladder and urine leaks, and there are a few more medical terms to describe the different types of incontinence in women. At TENA®, we call incontinence the Unexpected LeakTM. The symptoms described below should help you start to identify your type.

Do you leak when coughing, sneezing, laughing or doing heavy lifting?

This is Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), which is usually shortened to Stress Incontinence. Of the types of incontinence in women, stress incontinence is the most common. It is the most common type of female incontinence. It happens when the pelvic floor muscles that support the bladder have become weakened. Laughing and coughing increase pressure on the bladder, and the pelvic floor muscles are unable to tighten enough to keep all the urine in. There are usually only small amounts, but in some cases it can be more. If you have a small leak or just dribbles, you may want to try Pantiliners & Ultra Thin Pads.

Stress incontinence is more common during pregnancy, after childbirth and after the age of 40, yet it can happen to women of any age. In fact, 1 out of 3 women experiences stress urinary incontinence at some point in their lives, and around 40% of young women experience it when doing sports. Pelvic floor exercises ­­ also known as Kegel exercises ­­ can help. Find out more about incontinence exercises for women. We recommend trying TENA pads for stress incontinence.

Do you experience sudden urges to urinate?

This is Urge Incontinence, often referred to as an overactive bladder. This is when you experience a sudden urge to urinate and the bladder involuntarily expels urine. There is usually little warning and moderate to large amounts of urine leakage. The average person empties their bladder between 4 and 8 times a day, but if you find that you need to urinate more frequently than you feel is usual for you, even perhaps waking several times during the night on a regular basis, this could be a symptom of Urge Incontinence.

The exact cause of this type of incontinence is not known, but it’s thought that the bladder muscles send incorrect signals to the brain indicating that the bladder is fuller than it actually is. In certain cases you can ‘train’ your bladder not to do this by practicing pelvic floor exercises. Most people manage the symptoms of urge incontinence with protective pads or underwear.  TENA’s complete line of incontinence products offers discretion and security, so you can minimize the impact of Urge Incontinence and lead a full and active life. You’ll find information about our products and the opportunity to purchase them in our Products section.

Could you have mixed symptoms?

Some women experience Mixed Incontinence. It will usually be a combination of Stress Incontinence and Urge Incontinence. If you have both types of incontinence you will usually find that one is more prominent than the other. We recommend trying Protective Underwear or Adult Briefs.

Do you have a physical or mental condition that makes it difficult for you to reach the bathroom in time?

Another type of incontinence is the inability to reach the bathroom in time because of the difficulties caused by a physical or mental illness, and this is known as Functional Incontinence. The security and confidence you get from incontinence protection can help make this condition less stressful.

Do you have a neurological illness or brain injury?

Illnesses such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, Spina Bifida, Multiple Sclerosis or accidental brain damage can interfere with the way the bladder and brain communicate, leading to an inability to control the bladder or empty it completely. These are known as Neurological Bladder Disorders.

If you have not been able to determine your type of incontinence from the information provided here, we advise you to contact a healthcare professional for a personal assessment.

I have stress incontinence with light to moderate leakage, and I rely on TENA, especially when I go out to run errands, etc.

Symptoms and Treatment for Pelvic Floor Dysfunction – Get FREE Shipping

Pelvic floor dysfunctions are a series of disorders affecting millions of Americans and yet go undiagnosed and untreated in several cases. It is estimated that 1 out of 5 Americans will suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction at some point in their lives. It is a disorder that affects almost 50% of all women but can also affect men and children.

Pelvic function dysfunction (PFD) is a disorder that affects the muscles of the pelvis. These muscles support the various organs in the pelvic girdle including the bladder, the prostate, the rectum, and female reproductive organs. The urinary and the anal sphincters also function with the help of these muscles.

The symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunctions depend upon the type of the dysfunction and the muscles which are affected. Some of the different types of pelvic floor dysfunctions and their symptoms include:

  • Uterine Prolapse: This condition occurs when the muscles and ligaments supporting the uterus weaken and the uterus descends into the vaginal canal. Symptoms include difficulty and pain during sexual intercourse, urinary incontinence, lower back pain, fleshy parts of the uterus protruding from the vagina, chronic bladder infections, vaginal bleeding, increased discharge from the vagina and a heavy feeling in the pelvis.
  • Urinary Incontinence: This condition can be caused by a number of conditions including a weakening of the muscles which control the valve of the bladder. It results in a frequent urge to urinate. Other symptoms include pressure on the bladder and a feeling that the bladder has not been completely emptied.
  • Fecal Incontinence: This condition is characterized by a loss of bowel control which leads to the involuntary passage of stools. It may be classified as passive incontinence where the person passes stools without being aware of it or urge fecal incontinence in which the person is aware of the need to pass stools but cannot control their passage.
  • Dyssynergic Defecation: This is a condition where the muscles and nerves of the pelvic floor do not function properly resulting in an inability to pass stools, otherwise known as constipation. Associated symptoms include a bloated feeling, a feeling of incomplete evacuation, hard stools, excessive straining and being unable to have a bowel movement regularly. This dysfunction may also cause narrow stools.

Pelvic floor dysfunctions have many causes. Injury to the muscles and nerves of the pelvic floor may be caused by age, surgery and in the case of women, pregnancy and natural childbirth. In many cases the exact causes remains unknown.

A diagnosis of pelvic floor dysfunctions will usually begin with a history of the patient followed by a physical examination. A commonly used tool to aid in diagnosis is a study known as a defecating proctogram. It can help identify the exact location of the dysfunction. During the procedure, the patient is given an enema using a liquid that is visible in an x­ray. A device records the video image of the muscle movement in the pelvic floor region. With this study the doctor is able to see whether or not the pelvic floor muscles are functioning properly. It can help identify cases of rectal prolapse and rectocele, which is the formation of small pouches in the rectum.

Treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction range from physical therapy involving exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, to surgery depending on the cause and the severity of the condition. Treatment options include:

  • Biofeedback: The therapist teaches the patient ways to coordinate the use of abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. This is known as pelvic floor retraining and is said to be effective in almost 70% of all cases.
  • Pelvic Floor Exercises: A set of exercises known as Kegel exercises helps to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. These exercises can be performed at any time and help to improve bladder control as well as anal sphincter control. They can be combined with biofeedback for greater effectiveness.

    Kegel Exercises for Women

    These exercises can be performed while sitting, standing or lying down.

    Contract the pelvic floor muscles. These are the same muscles you would use to stop yourself from urinating. You will feel your urethra and anus being squeezed by these muscles. Squeeze them for three seconds and then relax them.

    Repeat this 10 to fifteen times per session, gradually increasing the time spent squeezing the muscles. You will need to do at least three sets a day on a daily basis. The longer and more frequently you perform these exercises, the more effective they will be.

    Kegel Exercises for Men

    Kegel exercises in men involve the squeezing and the tightening of the anus, stopping the flow of urine and the lifting of the scrotum. Perform all three actions simultaneously. Hold the contraction for as long as you can before slowly releasing. Gradually increase the time so that you can hold it for ten seconds. Repeat this for up to ten times per set and perform at least 3 sets every day.

    Other forms of treatment include medication and surgery in the more severe cases. Consult your doctor if you have any problem urinating or defecating.

Tranquility Heavy Protection Products – Get FREE Shipping

You Are Not Alone.

Urinary incontinence is a common condition that affects more than 25 million people in the United States. Leaking urine or losing bladder control can affect people of all ages and both genders. Incontinence is not a disease. It is a symptom of an underlying problem.

Quality of life includes a sense of happiness and peace of mind that stems from daily activities of wholesome living and caring.

Because Tranquility products provide exceptional capacity and comfort. Needless, wasteful changes are eliminated and product users can enjoy uninterrupted sleep and normal socialization.  These are important factors of healing and wellness.  In most cases, up to 6-8 hours of protection is provided before a change is needed.  Caregivers and family members notice that when product users sleep better (especially dementia and behaviorally challenged people), anxiety, irritation, and agitation are virtually eliminated.  Tranquility products’ superior performance ends embarrassment and social isolation while creating a more inviting atmosphere for family and friends.  

You can rely on Tranquility’s promise of unsurpassed overall performance in the areas of…

  1. Skin Dryness –  Moist skin is prone to irritation, breakdown and the formation of pressure sores.  Tranquility products instantly absorb moisture and trap large volumes of urine that will not “leak out” even under pressure.  The result: drier, healthier skin.
  2. Odor Reduction – One of the most distressing, yet pervasive characteristics of incontinence is the telltale ammonia odor of urine.  Tranquility products eliminate urine odor.
  3. Urine Neutralization – The pH levels of urine are unhealthy for skin.  Tranquility products quickly capture urine and neutralize the pH level to promote skin safety.
  4. Control of Bacterial Growth – Unabsorbed urine is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and other organisms.  These can easily lead to complications, including urinary tract infections.  Tranquility products lock away urine creating a safer skin environment.

An average person voids approximately 8-12 fluid ounces of urine. Many products are engineered to hold 2 or more voids depending on the individual circumstance. Premium performing products build confidence to pursue normal daily activities and sleep uninterrupted through the night.

High performance products provide the extra care that end-users need and demand.

Heavy Protection Products by Tranquility

These products work best with Overflow Incontinence which is when the bladder fills beyond capacity, bladder pressure increases, and urine is released. Mobility issues often lead to overflow incontinence.

Products designed to hold 3 cups = 24 fluid oz. under pressure (2-3 voids)

How do I manage the incontinence?

You may experience severe incontinence in the first few weeks following surgery. The best way to deal with this is to be prepared for it and learn what you should do to manage it. Incontinence after prostate surgery can take 6 to 12 months to completely resolve. In some cases there can be an ongoing problem which may require further surgery.

Pads

Pads are the first choice in managing urinary incontinence. There are several pads available in supermarkets and pharmacies which are specifically designed for men.

Some pads have an adhesive strip to keep them in place in the underwear. It is important to wear firm fitting jock-type underwear – not boxer shorts. Some pads are like complete pants with an absorbent pad in the crotch.

attends male free shipping

Pads are designed to lock away urine so that you feel dry and any unwanted odors are contained. A continence nurse advisor, urology nurse or continence physiotherapist can advise you on what pad is best for your level of incontinence.

Note: a pad is a way on managing incontinence, not treating it. It is important to eat well, drink well, exercise, do regular pelvic floor muscle exercises and practice good bladder and bowel habits.

Condom drainage

Condom drainage is useful for men experiencing severe leakage that requires more than 4-6 pads a day. A continence nurse advisor or urology nurse will be able to assess if condom drainage is suitable for you. This system uses a specially adapted condom type device that fits on the penis and is held in place by an adhesive. A drainage bag is attached to the condom to collect leakage from the bladder, similar to using a catheter.

Note: Condom drainage is a way of managing incontinence, not treating it. To improve bladder control, it is important to eat well, drink well, exercise, do regular pelvic floor muscle exercises and practice good bladder and bowel habits.

Skin Care

Skin irritation is commonly associated with incontinence. Here are some simple steps to care for your skin:

  • Wash in warm water using a soap free cleanser or pH neutral soap.
  • Pat dry carefully – do not rub.
  • Avoid talcum powder as it can cause skin irritation and may interfere with the absorbency of pads.
  • Wear firm fitting cotton underwear – no boxer shorts.
  • Avoid plastic pants or sheets that will cause you to sweat.

If your skin becomes irritated, you can use sorbolene cream to moisturise the area. A barrier cream may also be necessary. Use any cream sparingly as they may interfere with the absorbency of pads. Talk to a continence advisor nurse if your skin irritation does not improve with these simple steps.

Help and advice

There are a number of health professionals who can help you with incontinence following prostate surgery. Continence advisors can give you advice about diet, exercise (including pelvic floor muscle exercises) and products such as pads, catheters and mattress protectors.

Continence physiotherapists specialize in pelvic floor muscle exercises and can develop an individual program to suit your needs as well as provide advice about pads and general exercise. If your incontinence persists beyond 12 months, talk to your urologist as there are a range of surgical alternatives to help you achieve dryness, for example an artificial sphincter or sling.

Remember, incontinence can be treated, managed and in many cases cured.
