Thank you Poise for sponsoring this post on light bladder leakage.
To the guys and family who read my blog, please feel free to skip to the next post as I’m about into a real issue many of us ladies deal with…
After you have a baby everyone has advice for you. Tips and tricks for what has worked for them as a parent. Most of this I appreciated hearing. I liked listening to everyone’s advice and then figuring out what worked best for me. There is however, something that no one seems to want to talk about – including myself. For the longest time I hid it from even my husband. Things change after you have a baby – “down there” if you know what I mean.
I actually went 3.5 years into parenthood without experiencing this or having any one of my friends mention it. Then after my successful VBAC I began to notice that when I jumped up too quickly or would be working out something embarrassing happened.
I leaked a little. The first time it happened at home. I wasn’t too concerned as it hadn’t been too long since I had baby D. The second time it happened, I was at the gym. Thankfully I was wearing black pants so I was able to make my way home with hopefully no one noticing.
I got home and mentioned something to my friends and they were like “Oh yeah! That’s totally normal.”
Hey! Thanks! I appreciate the warning!! <– sarcasm
Well ladies, here is your warning! One in every three women experience light bladder leakage (LBL). This can happen by laughing, coughing, sneezing, or like in my case exercise. It’s real, it happens, and it’s embarrassing, but it doesn’t have to be.
It’s super slim that I can tuck them anywhere I need to. I have one in nearly every diaper and gym bag I own.
Look, obviously since no one talks about it, it’s not the most fun topic, but it happens, and it happens to a lot more women than you know. If you are anything like me you probably don’t want to talk about it, and probably just used a period liner.
Before I found out about this new microliner from Poise that’s exactly what I did! However, if you suffer from LBL you really should check out SAM. They absorb wetness, neutralize odor, and are three times more absorbent than period liners.
If this happens to someone you know or to yourself you can get a free sample from Poise to try out.
