Reusable cloth pads can be used for urinary incontinence as well as for menstruation.
Incontinence is a common problem for both men and women, but it can be made more comfortable with the use of cloth pads. With fabric topped pads, you may not feel like you're wearing a pad at all!
Cloth pads can be worn for incontinence by both men and women.
Cloth Pads with waterproofing can provide a highly absorbent pad, which will absorb leakage while keeping you dry. It is however important to choose the right pad for your needs, as different pads will have different amounts of absorbency.
Pantyliners can be used for stress incontinence (where sneezing or coughing can cause slight leakage). "Regular" cloth pads can be used for mild bladder leakage. While the thicker and more absorbent "night" style pads would be more suitable for heavier leakage.
"stay-dry" fabrics, such as microfleece, suedecloth and minky may be a suitable choice, due to the fact that they allow the absorbent inner core to pull the wetness in, leaving the top feeling drier.
