According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 5 million men in the USA deal with urinary incontinence, with millions more worldwide suffering from this sometimes-embarrassing condition.
This quarter, Men’s Liberty highlights a better alternative to managing urinary incontinence, featuring its discreet, dignified, and dependable device.
Urinary Incontinence: it can happen to anyone
Although urinary incontinence is more typical with aging adults, anyone can develop incontinence. According to Mayo Clinic, there are several types of urinary incontinence, with each caused by a variety of factors or underlying conditions.
Types of Urinary Incontinence:
- Stress Incontinence – often occurs due to laughing or coughing
- Overflow Incontinence – occurs due to an inability to fully empty the bladder
- Urge Incontinence – results in an urgent need to urinate even if only a small amount of urine is in the bladder
- Functional Incontinence – may be caused by any type of physical impairment that prevents someone from using the restroom in time
- Mixed Incontinence – as the name suggests, mixed Incontinence occurs when an individual suffers from more than one type of Incontinence
An Embarrassing and Degrading Condition
Despite its causes being largely out of the control of the afflicted individual, those affected often feel significant shame and embarrassment. The social stigma around incontinence, and the use of antiquated solutions on the market (such as traditional adult diapers), is ever-present and often weighs on the psyche of those with the condition. This can cause significant stress, anxiety and even depression or depressive thoughts around their condition.
Outdated Treatments and Solutions Leave Much to Be Desired
Adult Diapers: A classic solution, adult diapers can be both embarrassing as well as uncomfortable. In some cases, they can be difficult to conceal when wearing tighter or more revealing clothing. No matter how absorptive, no one wants to sit in their own urine, feeling the dampness of the cloth against their skin, causing irritation, diaper rashes, and general discomfort.
Prescription Drugs: Although sometimes effective, prescription drugs can be costly, inconvenient, may interact with other medications, and often come with a laundry list of potential undesirable side effects.
Condom Catheters: Are known to cause irritation and pose a risk of infection, especially in cases where the skin is already irritated or rubbed raw.

The Male External Catheter: an overview
The Men’s Liberty External Catheter is an innovative version of a condom catheter. As the name implies, this type of catheter acts like a condom to store expelled urine from the bladder into a drainage bag that is securely strapped to the leg of the wearer.
Unlike urethral catheters, this type is simple to use, pain-free, and can be changed at home or on the go without the need for assistance from a professional nurse or caregiver. This type of independence and freedom is one of the most notable and attractive features of the condom catheter.
