In brief: Needs work up

It is important to get tested to find out the cause before treating.
Diapers are like bandage; doesn't treat the cause.

In brief: Maybe

Diapers absorb the urine that leaks, but without understanding the underlying cause of incontinence, they are merely a 'band-aid' that decreases embarrassing accidents.
To understand your incontinence better, seek a urologist that can take a complete history, perform a physical examination, order tests and appropriate imaging, and evaluate the problem with cystoscopy and urodynamics if necessary.
