Not for Women Only

Men who have undergone local procedures in the genital or anal area (eg, abscess drainage) find it difficult to get a bandage to adhere to the skin because of the pubic hair. Shaving the area increases the risk of infection and is also something many patients prefer not to have done. A women’s mini sanitary pad applied to the man’s underwear over the site of the procedure is frequently sufficient to absorb the blood or drainage. We keep a few pads in stock so that men can avoid the embarrassment involved in shopping for "feminine hygiene products."
