Is There a Difference Between Menstrual Pads and Bladder Control Pads?

Are you currently using menstrual pads for your bladder leaks? Upon first glance, menstrual pads and bladder control pads have a similar appearance.  If you already have menstrual pads in your house, you may be using them because it is convenient. If you are new to incontinence, you may feel overwhelmed with unfamiliar brand names and an abundance of options.

It is important to note that there is a difference between these two categories of pads.  Menstrual pads are designed to absorb menstrual flow, while bladder control pads are designed to absorb urine. If you are currently using a menstrual pad for bladder leakage, please give us a call and let us help you find the right bladder control product for your needs. When you take the leap and try a bladder control pad, you will be delighted with better absorbency and superior odor control. 

Bladder control pads feature a unique top sheet that helps the pad absorb quicker than menstrual pads. They have more polymer gel while allows them to hold much more fluid than a menstrual pad. The polymer gel quickly absorbs the urine and keeps you feeling dry. Since menstrual pads are not made to hold as much, leaking and wetness is very common, and you would have to change your pad much more frequently than if you were wearing a bladder control pad. Bladder control pads also feature a cup-like shape to prevent leaking over the sides, and many varieties come with leg guards to keep fluid in the pad until it can be completely absorbed. As you can see, there are many benefits to using bladder control pads for bladder leaks.
