Before having children, I never realized what having babies would really do to my body. Sure, I expected the weight gain, the stretch marks, and swollen hands and feet. What I didn’t expect was what was to come later. My first son was a fairly large baby—over 7 pounds to be exact. My second son was even bigger.
I figured that after I gave birth, everything would go back to normal. And it did—almost. What I didn’t realize was that those two large babies had stretched out my pelvic floor muscles. This means that now if I laugh too hard, or sneeze, or even exercise I put myself at risk for bladder leaks.
Trust me, it was embarrassing the first few times it happened. That’s when I realized that these leaks were now going to be part of my life. It’s one of my battle scars from carrying my two precious sons.
Instead of being embarrassed and living in fear of sneezing, especially in public, I decided to do something about it. That was my “a-ha!” moment.
No woman should have to feel embarrassed about her body. No woman should have to be uncomfortable either. Yet when we use bulky period pads as protection for Light Bladder Leakage (LBL), we are doing just that.
Instead of using the wrong protection for bladder leakage (because seriously, who wants to use a period pad when it’s not your time of the month?), reach for the right type in the form of Poise® pads. With 3-in-1 protection for dryness, odor control and comfort, Poise Thin-Shape Pads* give me the confidence to do the things I love such as exercising, playing with my kids and spending the evening laughing with girlfriends.
There’s no need to be ashamed of your LBL. Instead of approaching life with caution because you’re afraid of being embarrassed, choose to embrace life with Poise®. Now I am more confident and I’m free to do the things that make me happy!
