Where can I find information about bladder control and/or Poise® Products?
Firstly, we need to understand what level of bladder leakage you usually experience before determining your Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) symptoms:
- LIGHT: Just a few drops resulting in damp underwear.
- MODERATE: Approximately half a cup resulting in damp underwear and outer clothing.
- HEAVY: More than a cup resulting in wet underwear and outer clothing.
Also, our Advice & Support section describes the causes and types of light urinary leakage and hopefully will put your mind at ease by answering any questions you may have about loss of bladder control.
Remember, light urinary leakage is a common problem that can be improved and managed, so consult your doctor or health professional for advice.

Is there a Poise® Pad for men?
All Poise® Pads are designed for women. For men seeking incontinence products, visit Depend® website to learn more about maximum bladder leakage protection from Depend® incontinence products specifically designed for both men and women.
Can I use Feminine Pads/Liners instead of Poise® to control my LBL symptoms since both products absorbs liquid?
No, you should not use them interchangeably. Because Feminine products are designed to absorb vaginal discharge and menstruation blood but not urine. Period Pads are not efficient in locking urine liquid and odor. Whereas Poise® products are specially designed to absorb urine. In fact, Poise® Liners and Pads are more absorbent than Feminine Liners and Pads. With the unique Aborb-Loc® core technology, our Poise® range is designed to eliminate urine odor, thus giving you the utmost discretion you desire.
I experience heavy LBL at night when I sleep. Can I use two Poise® Pads to double the absorbency?
We have the right overnight product for you - you can try the new Poise® Extra Plus Pads, which is meant for Overnight use. It is 36.5cm long, meant to provide you the leakage protection you need when you sleep at night.

What is the shelf life/expiry date of the Poise® Pads and Liners?
