Incontinence underwear

Postby johnstol » 24 Jun 2020, 3:14pm

My partner has taken up cycling and is finding incontinence pads uncomfortable when cycling. Any recommendations regarding the special underwear such as the Tena Lady? We don't ride long distances, riding for less than an hour.

It might be worth seeing a women's health physio, obviously you may know the cause of the incontinence, but they may be able to help with management, including a solution for when exercising.

Why not try buying cycle shorts/tights with a very thick padded seat pad. The odd accident would I’m sure be absorbed into the pad. It may work for her, worth a try. Should be ok if you are doing fairly short rides. I can’t think that wearing a Tena pad on a padded cycle pad would be very comfortable. Good luck.
