When choosing Attends, we want it to be easy for you to find the right incontinence product for your needs. For that reason, we have a numbering system explaining the level of absorption for all our products. The higher the number, the more the product absorbs.
Our numbering system starts at 0, containing our smallest pads, and goes up to 10 which is our highest level of absorption.
If a pad is the product you prefer, you only need to find the right absorbency number and you are good to go.
If you prefer disposable pants, belted, or all-in-one products that fits comfortably around your waist, you need to choose the right waist size for the product to fit your body the best.
The correct absorbency level and/or waist size reduces the risk of odour and leakage, providing safety and comfort for you every day.
If you ever feel unsure of what product is best suited for you, don’t hesitate to contact our helpful customer service.
Tips for finding the right products for you:
- You might need different absorbency levels and/or product types for day and night. Try out different ones and find the perfect fit for you or ask us for guidance!
- Always choose the lowest absorbency level suited for your needs. This gives you the most comfort and discretion and is also the best solution for the environment.
Light Urinary Incontinence
Have you ever experienced losing a small drop of urine or a small gush? For women this urine leakage often happens when you cough, laugh, sneeze or during exercise. For men, this often means losing a few drops of urine after urination. This is called light incontinence or light urine leakage.
Moderate Urinary Incontinence
You might have what we define as moderate urinary incontinence if you pass small or sometimes larger rushes of urine. You might find it hard reaching the toilet in time or have an urgent desire to pass urine.
Heavy Urinary and/or Faecal Incontinence
If you pass large amounts of urine, don’t reach the toilet in time and have no bladder control, you probably have what we call heavy urinary incontinence. If you have this category of incontinence you might also experience faecal incontinence.
