How does MoxyPatch™ work?
MoxyPatch™ uses the function of urethral occlusion ('covering') to prevent mild to moderate unintentional leaks caused by stress urinary incontinence in females. The urethral opening (where urine exits the body) is covered by the gentle adhesive hydrogel layer and acts as a barrier to prevent leaks. MoxyPatch™ must be removed prior to an intentional urination.
What is the MoxyPatch™ made of?
MoxyPatch™ consists of a soft, reusable, medical-grade silicone base and works along with the replaceable gentle adhesive hydrogel patches. All materials used in the design and creation of MoxyPatch™ are biocompatible materials and medical-grade materials. Additionally, our company is FDA Registered and, as such, follows a strict quality management system.
How do I know if my leaks are considered MILD to MODERATE?
Most women who experience stress urinary incontinence will leak when there is 'stress' placed on the bladder – often while running, jumping, lifting heavy items, sneezing, etc. These leaks can range from:
- MILD – less than 20ml/g (slightly more than 1 tbsp of urine)
- MODERATE – less than 75ml/g (slightly more than ¼ cup of urine)
- HEAVY – any single leakage episode that is greater than ¼ cup of urine.
MoxyPatch™ is designed specifically to prevent MILD TO MODERATE unintentional leaks due to stress urinary incontinence. If you have any questions regarding if MoxyPatch™ may be right for you or if you experience HEAVY unintentional leaks, we recommend speaking with your Physician or Health Care provider directly.
Will MoxyPatch™ work if I have both stress urinary incontinence AND mixed incontinence?
MoxyPatch™ is specifically designed to prevent mild to moderate leaks due to stress urinary incontinence. However, if you experience mixed incontinence (a combination of both urge and stress urinary incontinence) ,MoxyPatch™ may still help to decrease the overall number of leaks experienced by preventing any leaks specifically associated with stress incontinence (running, jumping, sneezing, etc.)
Can I use my MoxyPatch™ during my period?
Yes! MoxyPatch™ can be worn during menstruation as the Moxypatch™ is placed above the vagina (and not inside the vaginal opening). Menstrual products such as tampons, pads and menstrual cups can be worn at the same time as the MoxyPatch™ if desired.
How long can I wear my Moxypatch™?
The MoxyPatch™ must be removed prior to intentional urination and the gentle adhesive hydrogel must be removed, discarded, and replaced prior to each use. According to many Urologists, healthy adults urinate between 6 to 7 times per day on average. Therefore, it is recommended that the MoxyPatch™ be worn for a duration of approximately four hours maximum each use.*The MoxyPatch™ should not be worn while bathing, swimming, intentional urination or during sexual intercourse. Always speak to your Physician or Healthcare Provider if you have any concerns about if MoxyPatch™ may be suitable for you. **MoxyPatch™ should not be used if you have any current or recurrent urinary tract, urogenital or yeast infections, vaginal atrophy, urethral or vaginal conditions. MoxyPatch™ should not be used on broken or irritated skin. If you are pregnant, speak to your Physician or HealthCare Provider prior to use.
