Anthony Komaroff, MD, Internal Medicine, answeredFor men, there are several absorbent products designed with the male anatomy in mind. Drip shields (with light protection) or guards (that absorb more) with waterproof backings slip over the head of the penis and can be kept in place with any relatively tight-fitting briefs. Some cover the scrotum as well and fit better if the penis is small or retracted. Brand names include Attends and Conveen. These products absorb 3 to 4 ounces of urine. When men with light incontinence compared four types of products, drip guards were the favored design for day and night use. For heavier incontinence, you can wear absorbent inserts, shaped to fit men (such as Depend and Dignity), inside your own underwear or special mesh briefs.
