Why Didn’t You Tell Me!?!? (Light Bladder Leakage)

 

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.

Who is SAM?  SAM is the newest mircroliner from Poise!  For me personally the SAM (super absorbent material) was the answer to my LBL workout woes.

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.

  3. My housekeeper tells me to keep up with my kegels because as I get older she assures me it will be an issue. She warns me that one day I will laugh or cough and be shocked!

  17. It’s nice that we all suffer from this together so we can talk about it freely. Well, it’s not really nice that we all suffer from it, but you know what I mean…

    [Reply]

  18. Haha, yes! Things they don’t tell you, and you have to learn the hard way. Like ruining the ful of jumping on the trampoline with the kids. Ooops!

  21. I have discussed this with my OB/GYN several times. He said that most women have this, particularly after childbirth. At least there’s a product to save some embarrassment now!
