I'm a huge fan of water. I drink it all day. All. Day. Especially when it's hot outside. I even keep a cup of water at my bedside. You should see my water bottle collection. It's quite impressive!.
There's just one problem.
The consequences of all that water means I have to...
All the time.
As I'm running errands, I often have to stop at a few stores to use the restroom and I'm picky about which ones I use. You know you just can't use any public rest room nowadays! I even have my favorites.
Which brings me to another problem.
I call it my potty dance. You know what I'm talking about. That jig you do as you wiggle your clothes off? Yeah, I know I'm not the only one! And I just went to the bathroom...thirty minutes ago!
Thankfully, I can make it there without accidents. But did you know that Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) is something a lot of women deal with? In fact, did you know that 1 in 3 women have LBL? Wow!
What is LBL?
*One in three women experience Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) – little leaks that can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise.
*Weak pelvic floor muscles, pregnancy, childbirth and weight gain are just a few LBL contributors.
What causes LBL?
Just as no two women are alike, there's no single reason that LBL happens. Some of the most common things that lead to uninvited leaks include:
• Physical changes from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause
• Being overweight
• Complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson's disease
• Bladder or urinary tract infections
• Bladder irritants (certain foods and beverages)
And some women are using there period pads to deal with it! Just stop. Stop that right now!
Poise pads have just what you need to keep you feeling dry and confident. Poise Thin-Shape pads, which are up to 40% thinner than original Poise brand pads and are made specifically for bladder leaks with the trusted absorbency of Poise brand. It's good to know that women who suffer from LBL can turn to Poise.
In the mean time, I have an easy way to recycle those period pads. Check out my handy coin purse!
Just peel the paper off and attach to the sticky side of your pad. Add decorative beads like above. Glue the sides down and let dry. You can decorate your coin purse further by painting it or adding glitter or flowers.
