Thanks to Poise for sponsoring today’s discussion.
As a woman of a certain age who has had two babies I doubt it comes as a surprise that the feeling of a sneeze coming on can also bring a little bit of panic. As the sneeze builds up I brace myself, cross my legs, and hope for the best…then light bladder leakage strikes.
Does this sound familiar? Ugh. So embarrassing, isn’t it? Light bladder leakage (LBL) is very common in women but isn’t something that we’re comfortable talking about, not even to our doctors. We tend to suffer with this in silence but Poise Microliners can help.
After the birth of my first child I noticed that every once in a while a sneeze would come with a rather unpleasant side effect. It happened so infrequently that I never expected it when it did happen which meant that I wasn’t prepared. Talk about embarrassing.
After the birth of my second son and being well into my thirties I found that these sneeze accidents were happening more frequently. It was so embarrassing! Crossing my legs when I feel a sneeze coming on helps but not 100% of the time so I need to give myself some added protection.
Many women try to tackle LBL with menstrual pads but they aren’t made for bladder leakage. Poise Microliners are and they are so small and thin that you will never notice that you’re wearing anything at all, except when the inevitable happens.
If you do find yourself having accidents when you sneeze, laugh, lift something heavy, or any other time that LBL typically strikes just remember that it’s much more common than you may realize. You’re not alone and Poise can help. Get your free sample and stop allowing LBL to ruin your day.
