Having children is the greatest joy I have ever known. My children are everything to me. When I was giving birth I was prepared for what was probably going to be the most painful yet rewarding experience in my life. That pain subsided almost immediately to pure joy and love.
What I wasn’t prepared for was what would happen after the birth of my children. When Zoe was about 5 months old, we went to my dad’s for a cookout and to have fun with my younger siblings. You see I’m a big kid at heart so excitedly jumped up on the trampoline and began flipping, jumping and bouncing….and that is when it happened.
Did I just wet myself?
I absolutely did.
That was the very moment I learned of light bladder leakage (LBL). Light bladder leakage is very common affecting 1 in 3 women but very embarrassing for those it happens to. I read that kegel exercises can help relieve bladder weakness, but my bladder was just too weak. To this day I still perform kegels and to this day I still have leakage issues.
I can’t jump on a trampoline with my children, perform jumping jacks when exercising or laugh hysterically because an accident will occur.
It is life but I no longer stress about it because it happens all too often, instead I’m taking control with Poise® Microliners, featuring SAM (Super Absorbent Material).
Poise Microliners are the perfect product to use to protect against LBL as they instantly absorb wetness and are incredibly thin. I was amazed at how thin these were.
This makes them comfortable to wear as they do not feel like you (an adult) is wearing a diaper. Because of the thin size, they are discreet when you need to grab and go, just place in your purse or pocket and nobody will ever know.
I like that they are individually wrapped, stay in place and absorb any wetness that may occur.
LBL can happen to anyone, any age, at any time, leaving you unprepared. Make sure you’re equipped for all those unexpected moments by keeping Poise Microliners with you at all times. Take that LBL, I can now have fun and do exercises I love and not worry about that wet spot showing on my bottoms.
