I started using a slip pad just over a month ago for minor leaks and urges, but since I have I’m finding that I’m leaking more often, leading to actually wetting myself with no control. It’s got to a point where I’m now buying higher protection nappies as I can’t seem to control the urge and I empty my bladder. I don’t know whether this is due to becoming more comfortable and confident now I’m wearing protection, as it’s been a life saver in so many occasions. Is this a common problem when you start using protection?
How are you getting on?
Do you know that you can get incontinence pads on the NHS? You need to speak to the local continence adviser and they will assess you and your needs.
I get my TENA Slip Maxi Active Fit supplied by the NHS though you do sometimes have to fight to get the best products as some of the adult nappies that supply are not great.
