I do not let the potential aspect of potential urine drips or squirts curtail my activities... Sometimes kegels are forgotten or they just plain get tired... And then when I drink a lot of coffee that I so much love...
So I figured I would pass along what has been working for me... I always wear standard cotton briefs and use one of two insertable/removable pouches/pads as needed based on activity...
For the occasional drip that occurs when doing normal tasks in the house or traveling around in the car, shopping, etc... I find the Attends Guards for Men small folded pouch light weight and great... easily removed and replaced... etc... Also keep a small plastic baggy in a pocket in case I need to swap and carry for awhile if no trash can around. They are cheap and best price I find is usually thru overstock.com... base of about
$0.50/each, but usually always a 10% coupon available somewhere, no tax, and cheap shipping...
When I am working on projects that involves lifting or getting down/up off the ground, I use a heavier absorbant pouch as kegels either get forgotten/tired tired and I will get a squirt as opposed to a drip. I also use them on more strenuous activities like when I go backpacking more than a mile or so... especially on the steep uphills/downhills... The pouch I like is the Coloplast Manhood Absorbant Pouch 4200B... Has sticky tape on one side and is also easily removed and replaced by just reaching in and swapping them out... lol... I find a normal snug fitting cotton brief better than a loose fitting brief at keeping them in proper position. I also carry a small ziploc in case trash disposal is not around. On some long day hikes or overnight backpacking trips where I have not built a fire for disposal, I actually pack them out for proper disposal. I have found the cheapest prices at healtykin.com at about
$28 for case of 30... No tax and I usually order 4-5 cases and the shipping is only $10-12... So, ends up at about
$1.00/pouch. I have seen prices on some sites of up to $50-60 for the same case of 30... Jeesh...
Anyway, these have worked great for me... Interested in what other fellow members have found that works good for them...
