It can happen with a sneeze, a laugh, or when you lift something. It can happen in your twenties or in your sixties. Light bladder leakage doesn’t discriminate; it can happen to any one of us at any time and often does. This is why I have once again partnered with Depend to bring awareness to their Underwareness campaign.
For the third year, Underwareness encourages people to show their support for women with bladder leakage. To show their support, through 2016 Depend will donate $1, up to $3 million, for every photo or video shared using the #Underwareness hashtag and featuring a Depend product. This money will fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage. For 51 million women, this is huge news.
I have suffered from LBL since I was pregnant with my oldest son. I was only 25 years old and I felt like I was the only one who had this problem and I kept silent for years and years. Finally, I found out that there were women all over who were also suffering with it. Now, after having my second child, sneezing has become an even more unpredictable act. I used to laugh when I saw women cross their legs when they sneezed, but no one is laughing now, except maybe my husband.
I have written about this topic before and I will continue to do so as an attempt to break down the wall and let others know that they aren’t alone. Depend has many products on the market to help women deal with bladder leakage, including the Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs that fit and feel like real underwear.
So if you also suffer from bladder leakage, join in and share about #Underawareness to donate to the cause. Also, be sure to visit www.Underwareness.com to support the cause and request a free sample of Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs to try for yourself or for someone you know.
We’re in this together, ladies. Bring awareness and erase the stigma.
