Butterfly-shaped Anal Leakage Pad?

Has anyone tried this product? I found it during a google search:

(I hope it is ok to post the link to the product; I am NOT advertising, promoting or pushing this item - I want fellow FI members' experiences.)

My problem is Crohn's, and that I can't always make it to the loo in time. Some leakage occurs. I seldom leave the house because I never know if or when this will happen. At home, I usually try to wear regular clothing and sit on a puppy training pad (they are cheaper than the medical pads, especially when I have no insurance), but the laundry can quickly add up.

Diapers are hot and can give me a skin rash where the elastic bunches at the leg openings, so I don't like to wear those unless I am required to be away from home. And they are expensive, too.

So I am curious - has anyone tried this?

How did it work for you?

What about the adhesive used to keep it in place - did this irritate your skin?

Thank you very, very much for your support.

I cant believe that I am posting here again as after I was personally attacked on the FI forum and I said I would never post again but here goes nothing.

I have not tried it or even heard of it until you posted but the idea or concept sounds solid and not a bad idea. Maybe we can get others to post on this that might have tried it if you do deciede to try them let us know. And yes it was fine posting the link as that is what we are here for to help each other.

God Bless.

Well folks, I've tried them, use them and trust me they are excellent protection. My problem is not of a serious nature, just minor leakage at times but these are easy to use, stay in place well, and solved my problem but like I said, my situation is minor. Keep that in mind!
