How Many Incontinence Pads Should I Use?

According to the National Association for Continence, over 25 million Americans suffer from incontinence. That’s a lot of people! And if you’re one of them, you know that one of the most difficult things to manage is how many incontinence pads to use per day. Do you use too many and run out too quickly? Do you use too few and deal with leaks? It’s a tricky balancing act. Here at RMS Brands®, we want to help make your life as easy as possible. So, we’ve put together a short guide on how many disposable underpads you should be using per day.

The answer to this question depends on a few factors, including:

The Severity of Your Incontinence


Mild incontinence can usually be managed with one or two pads per day while more severe cases may require four or more bed underpads.

Your Normal Daily Activities


If you have a sedentary lifestyle, you will likely need fewer underpads than someone with an active lifestyle who is constantly on the go.

Your Personal Preferences


Everyone is different! Some people prefer to use more adult underpads and change them more often while others are fine with using fewer pads but changing them less frequently. 


At the end of the day, it’s important to experiment with incontinence supplies until you find a routine that works for you. And don’t be afraid to ask your doctor for advice—they’re there to help!
