​How Often Do Incontinence Pads Need to be Changed? | Blog

Incontinence pads can help provide you with safety and independence so you can worry less and go about your day with ease. They come in a range of absorbencies, sizes and styles to suit your every need. A common question that can arise is how often do incontinence pads need to be changed each day, we’ve provided the answer below.

It is recommended to change incontinence pads around four to six times per day. You should always change your incontinence pad when it’s wet, as wearing it for longer can contribute to bad odours, poor hygiene and skin conditions. Irritation and chaffing can also occur if you leave a pad on for too long regardless of whether it is wet or dry.

For overnight use, there are certain incontinence pads that are designed for higher absorbency and to be left on throughout the night. It is important though that when you wake up you change your incontinence pad first thing so as to avoid any irritation or other problems.
