My Dad has incontinence from prostate surgery; what kind of products does he need?

For men who are active and want to continue playing golf, or just go about their daily activities without fear of embarrassment, there are many incontinence products that make life easier. One option is NorthShore™ GoSupreme™ Lite Underwear. This is a disposable pull-on undergarment that works like a diaper. But you can pull it on like regular underwear. Another choice is the NorthShore™ DoubleStop™ Male Guards, a new, high-performance male guard. Alternatively, try a moderately sized liner. Each offers good coverage and is discreet under clothing.

After prostate surgery, light guards worked for a while, but my incontinence has increased, what are my options?

If a lower absorbency disposable pull-on is no longer sufficient, we recommend a highly absorbent pull-on. Incontinence often increases over time and this is not uncommon. Men who are working or active full time want a product that is not only discreet but also provides the security needed to get through their day with confidence. 

If the wearer needs all-day protection and the options are overwhelming, speak with care expert to get the right product for your individual needs. If you prefer not to call, there are some popular products to consider.  A male guard such as theNorthShore™ DoubleStop™ Male Guards, is the best and most comfortable solution. These are uniquely shaped for the male anatomy. For more coverage and protection, consider a pull-on that is discreet but absorbent enough for a full day, like Molicare Mobile Underwear or NorthShore™ GoSupreme™ Underwear

Is there a product that works well with my loose-fitting boxer shorts?

Incontinence products and loose-fitting boxer shorts are not a good match.  Boxers cannot hold the product snugly in place. Reliable protection is best achieved by wearing a guard or liner in regular non-boxer style underwear or wearing a disposable absorbent brief or pull-on designed for incontinence. The NorthShore™ DoubleStop™ has the best adhesive and a dual core for optimal absorption. Plus each guard is individually wrapped so that it can be carried discreetly for quick changes.
