It’s not such a big secret that at my age and after two kids, sometimes I need a little extra support in the bladder control department. It’s an embarrassing topic, but the more women talk about it, the less women will feel alone if it starts to happen to them. Trust me, we are not alone. Over thirty-five million women experience Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI).
The first time I experienced SUI was sixteen years ago when I was pregnant with my oldest son. I was out shopping when I sneezed and suddenly realized that I did more than just sneeze. I was shocked and pretty horrified to say the least. Thankfully it was just a little bit so no one else noticed, but I did and from that day forward sneezing always caused me more than a little anxiety.
Now that I am sixteen years older and have had my second child, it happens more often and that’s really not cool. I have tried a lot of products for bladder control and while pads and briefs work to keep wetness contained, new Poise Impressa bladder supports can reduce or stop leaks from happening.
How is Poise Impressa different?
It looks kind of like a tampon and is inserted like a tampon, but Poise Impressa is actually a bladder support. Impressa’s unique shape gently lifts and gives support to the urethra when it is inserted. This helps to reduce or stop leaks before they happen so sneezing, laughing, coughing, and lifting are no longer cause for anxiety. Like a tampon, Impressa can be used for up to 8 hours.
Is Poise Impressa right for you?
Do you sometimes leak urine when you when they laugh, cough, sneeze, dance, or exercise? The yes, Impressa is for you. If you have often have a sudden need or rush to urinate or experience both kinds of urine leaks, Impressa is NOT for you.
Poise Impressa comes in three different sizes: size one for light support, size two for medium support, and size three for high support. I purchased the Sizing Kit with this $2.00 off coupon to find the right size for me. Each kit includes six bladder supports (two of each size), along with a $4 coupon toward a 10-count Single-Size Pack of Impressa.
