    leakage turns black
    An_244846 posted:
    I suffer from incontinence and when I go back to the bath room the urine on my pad is black with in hours of putting on a new one. I have been tested for blood in urine and urinary track infections and they all come back normal. My urine is a normal color in the just does this on the pad. As far as I know I am not having a vaginal discharge you can see I am very confused about this.

    Did you ever fin out what the issue was? I'm wondering if it's a chemical reaction between something specific in your urine and something in the pad's gel. Does this happen with different brands of pad? Does it vary with what you've had to drink at all?

    I have the same problem and so does one of my friends. We use different brands but the same thing happens
