What are some tips for traveling with male incontinence?

traveling with male incontinence

Traveling with male incontinence is a breeze with Men’s Liberty. Enjoy the freedom to travel across town or around the world with our convenient, secure system. Here’s what else helps.

Plan ahead

Don’t wait until the last minute to talk with your doctor. You’ll want to give yourself time to get a handle on your incontinence management plan. Your incontinence management plan should feel like second nature before you head away from home. Also, empty your bladder fully each time you use the toilet. Double voiding can help. To do this, urinate and wait a few minutes before trying to urinate again.

Know before you go

Choose an aisle seat if flying. If driving, map out appropriately timed rest stop breaks. Alternatively, traveling with male incontinence is easy with Men’s Liberty. Enjoy up to 24 hours of secure protection so you stay dry and leak free mile after mile. Simply empty the discreet collection unit when its convenient.

Pack wisely

Have extra supplies on hand in your carryon bag, just in case your luggage is lost, or the plane is delayed on the tarmac. 

Know your triggers

Certain food and drink choices worsen incontinence. While part of the fun of vacationing is trying new foods, you’ll want to steer clear of known bladder irritants. These include alcohol, caffeine, carbonated drinks, citrus and tomatoes. Constipation can also aggravate incontinence. Stay hydrated and include fiber in your daily diet. If travel sets your digestive system off balance, consider using a stimulant.

Recognize the urge

As you prepare to travel, practice recognizing the urge to void. When you notice it, contract the pelvic muscles. Doing so can reduce the feeling of urgency and give you more time to get to the toilet. You can also try distracting yourself. Feeling stressed and anxious about having an accident often increases the likelihood that you will have an accident.

Man diapers can trap moisture, causing infection, discomfort and odor. Travel without incontinence on your mind when you choose Men’s Liberty.
