Panty Liners, Pads are Temporary Solutions

February 5, 2023


Panty Liners, Pads, and Undergarments are not Long-Term Solutions


If you struggle with urinary incontinence and rely on panty liners, pads, or special undergarments to manage your symptoms, it's important to know that these products are only temporary solutions, not a permanent fix. In fact, relying on these products may even make your symptoms worse over time.


Many women make the mistake of ignoring their incontinence issues, thinking they will just go away or that using a liner or pad is enough to solve the problem. However, these products only provide temporary relief and do not address the root cause of the issue.


Ignoring incontinence and relying on products like pads and liners can actually lead to worsening symptoms. Many women find a solution that works for them, whether it's a liner, pad, or special underwear, and then carry on with their lives. However, by not addressing the issue and seeking out a long-term solution, symptoms can progress and become more severe.


The solution to incontinence is not pads or liners, but rather pelvic floor physical therapy and the right exercises. When we potty train as children, we are taught to use the bathroom and control our bladder function. This is a skill that can be learned and improved upon as adults through pelvic floor physical therapy. By strengthening the muscles in the pelvic floor and improving your overall mobility, you can improve your bladder control and reduce incontinence symptoms.


It's important to address incontinence issues early on and seek out a long-term solution rather than relying on temporary measures like pads and liners. If you're struggling with incontinence, consider seeking out a pelvic floor physical therapist to help you find a permanent solution and improve your quality of life.
