Why should I use male incontinence products?

ANSWER

Some guys don't want to try urinary incontinence products because they feel like it's a sign of defeat. But remember that a lot of men may only need incontinence products temporarily. For instance, if you've just had prostate surgery, using some of these products may help get you through while you're healing.

Think of incontinence products as valuable tools to help you get by. They may not be a long-term solution, but they can vastly improve your quality of life right now.
