What Products Help With Urinary Incontinence?

Pelvic Muscle Training Devices continued...

There are different kinds of Kegel training devices. Some are aimed at men and women, including appliances you squeeze between your thighs. Vaginal weights, rods, and cones of various sizes are intended for women. 

It’s hard to tell at a glance which items might help you -- or how some of them work. So do research and talk to your doctor before you buy any of them. Your doctor can help you narrow down the choices.

Urethral Inserts and Other Products

Pessaries go into the vagina to support the bladder or compress the urethra. They come in an array of sizes and shapes. Your doctor will fit you, but it may take some trial and error to figure out which one works best.

Urethral inserts go into the urethra and block urine flow. When you have to go, take it out, toss it, and insert a new one when you’re done.

Tampons can work like pessaries for a mild problem.

Penile clamps provide pressure to keep the urethra closed for mild to moderate leaks.

Male guards are small sleeves that fit over the tip of the penis to contain light moisture. 

Condom catheters fit around the penis. They end in a tube that leads to a collection bag strapped to your body.

Your doctor can recommend the type of products that will help you take control.
