Urinary incontinence is certainly not a life-threatening situation. However, it certainly effects lifestyle in a dramatic manner. For many it means wearing damp undergarments, diapers, having skin irritation or diaper rash.

Even though the cause of the urinary leakage may be multi-fold, and in and of itself not a life-threatening disorder, the effects of this disorder can be most severe on the individual's lifestyle.

Incontinence can be tough to handle for anyone at any age.

While there are several different ways to approach managing your incontinence I prefer to handle mine with adult diapers.

Adult diapers these days look more and more like underwear every year. They even have incontinece boxers!

They aren't that good yet but its a great idea for male incontinence.
