Who can use Contend™?
Contend™ is a protective cover designed for bodily mobile adult men experiencing mild dripping to small amounts of urine leaks throughout the day. One single protective cover can absorb up to 125 ml, which is equivalent to approximately half a cup.
What is the protective cover’s liquid capacity?
Contend™ features a leak-tight pocket with an absorber inside it. Each protective cover can absorb up to 125 ml – equivalent to approximately half a cup. We recommend that the cover is replaced with a new one when it starts to feel wet or has reached its full capacity.
What size should I choose?
Contend™ is available in two flex collar opening width sizes: Regular fit and Large fit. The difference between the two sizes is the diameter of the opening width of the flex collar. Tests have shown that the Regular fit opening width will suit most adult men. If you are in doubt, we recommend you choose the Regular fit, unless you usually require larger sizes. The liquid capacity is up to 125 ml for both sizes – equivalent to approximately half a cup.
What is a protective cover?
Contend™ is the new and innovative alternative to pads – a protective cover to wear over your penis if you experience mild urine dripping or smaller leakages throughout the day. Contend™ is for single use and one single protective cover can be worn until the protective cover reaches its full capacity or feels wet and for no longer than 24 hours at a time.
What’s meant by ‘double security’ against leakage?
Contend™ features a leak-tight pocket with an absorber made from polymeric material – a material that has super absorbent qualities, and can absorb up to 125 ml. This combination offers double security against leakage.
Can I use Contend™ while doing sports?
Yes, the Contend™ flex collar ensures a comfortable fit around the penis and keeps the protective cover securely in place during wear. Remove the protective cover before bathing, showering, or swimming.
How long can I wear Contend™ for?
Each protective cover can be worn until the absorber has reached its full capacity or feels wet. Depending on personal preferences and how much you drip, you may want to exchange the cover one or more times a day. Each cover can be worn for a maximum duration of 24 hours but should be replaced as needed. As the absorber inside Contend™ absorbs urine, it expands. Once Contend™ has reached its full maximum capacity of 125 ml, it will have expanded 3-4 cm, which means that there is less room for the penis inside the pocket. It may at this point also feel wet and heavy. You should always remove Contend™ if your skin becomes irritated.
Can I wear Contend™ while sleeping?
Yes, Contend™ can also be worn during the night until the absorber has reached its full capacity and feels wet.
How do I know if Contend™ is right for me?
Contend™ is for adult and bodily mobile men with mild-to-moderate urinary leakage. If you experience mild to moderate urinary leakage, you drip approximately 15-150 ml urine over the course of a day. The amount and frequency may vary, but to put it into perspective, it’ll range from a tablespoon a day to a full glass. One single Contend™ protective cover can absorb up to 125 ml – equivalent to approximately half a cup.

How many protective covers are in a pack?
The Contend™ retail box contains 10 protective covers, while the sample box holds two.
Is Contend™ skin friendly?
Yes, Contend™ is hygienic and skin friendly, because it only covers the penis, so it minimises the amount of skin exposed to urine.
Do I need to remove Contend™ when I need to urinate normally?
No, it’s not necessary. Contend™ allows you to urinate standing up, without having to remove the protective cover completely. You can open the adhesive strip and lift your penis out through the front opening. Afterwards, lift the penis back into the protective cover and reseal the opening with the adhesive strip. If you prefer to sit down while urinating normally, you may find it easier to remove the protective cover completely, and re-apply it once you are done.
Can I reuse a protective cover?
You must not wear a single protective cover for more than 24 hours. If you prefer to sit down while going to the toilet, you may find it easier to remove the protective cover completely and re-apply it once you are done. You can re-apply a protective cover after toilet visits if it’s within a 24 hour period of wear.
Will people notice I’m wearing Contend™?
The materials and product design of Contend™ combine to minimise odour, sound and bulkiness – all to maximise discretion.
Can I wear my normal clothes while using Contend™?
Yes, you can wear your normal clothes. However, we recommend that you use fitted boxers, trunks, or briefs – as opposed to loosely fitting boxers – for optimal support while wearing Contend™.
Is the packaging recyclable?
Yes, the box Contend™ comes in is 100% recyclable packaging.
How do I dispose of the protective cover after use?
You can dispose of the protective covers with regular household waste. Please don’t flush the protective cover down the toilet.
