The Difference Between Menstrual Pads and Incontinence Pads

The Difference Between Menstrual Pads and Incontinence Pads

There is a mistaken belief that a menstrual pad can provide as much protection against urinary leakage as a bladder control pad. They both are used to absorb fluid, right? More or less, yes, but there are distinct differences between these two types of pads.

Menstrual pads are created to absorb the slow flow of menstrual blood. The top layers of these pads are porous allowing the gradual blood loss to be pulled away from the body. While this works well at keeping your skin dry, these pads are not made to handle the quick flow or composition of urine.

Bladder control pads are made to absorb rapid urine loss. These pads quickly capture and disperse moisture to promote skin heath. Bladder control pads use polymers and fabrics that pull urine away from the skin and neutralizes pH levels to help prevent skin irritation and eliminate odor.
