Compression pouch (for men)

These are basically padded pouches that put a little pressure on the penis to help prevent urine loss (by gently squeezing the urethra), while absorbing small amounts of urine if there is leakage. The compression pouch can safely be worn for three to four hours, giving you enough time to go to the gym or do some other activity that may trigger bladder problems.

These are disposable products that should not be used at night, according to the manufacturers.
