You can trust uresta® to be safe and really work
The uresta® bladder support stops leaks rather than absorbing them – most disposables hold the urine (and the odour!). In clinical studies, 17 out of 20 saw a significant reduction in leaking while leaks were completely eliminated for 6 out of 10 women19. The uresta® bladder support was designed by a urogynecologist to work with your body and it’s manufactured to high standards in Canada.
“Now I can go to work, I can go to school and I can feel confident again.”
Comfortable for everyday and simple in every way
The uresta® bladder support is comfortable for daily use20. You can manage it yourself – it’s simple to fit and simple to clean. And uresta® is designed to be discreet – it’s convenient to use and carry and it makes travelling much easier.
Reusable is a good thing
Reusable is good for your pocketbook – over a 12-month period, uresta® provides better value than disposables21. Reusable is also better for the environment – you might use hundreds of pads or other disposable solutions over the span of a year, all of which end up in landfill.
Getting started is simple
It’s easy to find your fit – you just need a uresta® Starter Kit.
The Starter Kit contains the three sizes most common for women. Start with the smallest size and try each size to decide which one is right for you. And remember: the size you are on the inside has nothing to do with the size you are on the outside, so expect to need to try a few sizes before you find the one that is right for you.

If you’re used to disposables
Most disposables absorb leaks rather than stopping them like uresta®. You have to carry them around with you and they can be bulky and messy and uncomfortable and awkward12. You have to change them often and worry about the next leak out – plus you’re spending a lot of money13 and filling up landfill sites.
Inserting uresta® is a lot like using a tampon
Once inserted, the bell shape works with your body, supporting the urethra to help significantly reduce or stop leaks. It’s easy to use uresta® – the narrow tip and handle make it easy to insert and remove and it’s easy to clean14.

Over time, it feels like there’s nothing there
Some women get used to the feel of their uresta® right away. For others, it can take a few weeks or a couple of months until you find the correct placement and it feels like there’s nothing there at all. You also shouldn’t be put off if you still leak a little at first. This can be because your body is getting used to the fit or because you’re one of the 20% for whom leaking will continue but at a significantly reduced rate – and still can be quite liberating16.
Flexible to your needs
You know your body best. Use your uresta® during the day and remove it at bedtime. Or use it during an activity that causes leaks and remove it once you’re done. Some women even use two different sizes: one for everyday use and one for exercise or more strenuous activities. You don’t need to take it out to pee or have a bowel movement but you do need to remove it before sexual intercourse17.
Replace it every year
We recommend replacing your uresta® after a year of use or if a defect (i.e. crack) develops in it.18 This is still more cost effective and environmentally friendly than disposables.
