I have incontinence after complications with a hysterectomy, and I have been invited to a get together at my friend’s house. I want to stay overnight like everyone else, as we are having a beauty night hosted my friend who is a representative. I am just worried about what to do with my products…odour being revealed etc. My incontinence is urinary and quite heavy at times. My worst nightmare is leaking on something or her discovering it. Does anyone have tips on managing this at someone else’s house?
Relax – there are excellent products out there to help you. My own incontinence product of choice is I.D. Expert belted slips and I sleep soundly when I have one on. They are so discreet and, in the morning, you can change yourself and use a Kordis blue disposal bag if you have wet overnight. They are available in packets of 50 on the Sainsbury`s feminine care counter and are scented to neutralise any odours. Have no fear about anything showing either – they contour well to male and female anatomy. Hope this helps and good luck with your party!
Thanks so much, I normally wear Attends Contours 10 for my incontinence but am thinking of trying these slip products for things like this now you have mentioned them.
Do they make any noise at all during use? I’m looking at them now and considering getting some, especially if they don’t move around.
I would recommend taking some scented disposal bags, so you don’t have to put your product in your friend’s bin. You can then take this home with you, don’t worry about odour as it completely conceals it.
Wipes and cleansing products are also good for when changing products, you will feel a lot more fresh.
Just an update- I went to the get together and wore some iD Expert Belt pads for night time. I was VERY worried about sleeping over and almost changed my mind about going. However, everything went smoothly and I managed to forget about it when I was there. I did wear quite baggy clothing, however in future I’ll probably just wear what I normally would.
The pads kept me protected and comfortable during the night, I woke up completely dry. I took some cleansing wipes..think they were Conti?, with me to use in between product changes, but no-one realised. I think bringing odour protection products such as spray also helped.
Thanks everyone for your advice!
