Moderate incontinence pads are for incontinence issues that are a little more intense than very light stress incontinence or very light urge incontinence. They gather more fluid and give more protection in case it's needed. They are more for if the person has trouble with a continuous flow, for example, if the person cannot get to the bathroom on time and sometimes has a continuous flow before they can do so. Light incontinence pads are a little bulkier, but are more discrete than heavy incontinence briefs and pullups. Moderate incontinence is a condition that should be monitored by a doctor.
