Use Poise for LBL #RecycleYourPeriodPad






Today's post is sponsored by Poise. My potty danc
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...

Go potty.

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!

TMI? Sorry.

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.

  4. I didn't know LBL was such a widespread concern. I know in the mommy community it's a topic of conversation but no one talks about how to deal with it or what products to use. So this is a great post!

  5. Hey hiding money in a pad on a trip would be a great way to avoid it getting stolen I guess! Also sadly on June 23rd I am having surgery to remove my ovaries & tubes to reduce my high risk of Ovarian cancer, I will no longer be having a monthly. But I might need something post surgery I will look into the samples!

  6. I definitely had LBL when I was pregnant and shortly thereafter. That feeling of having to go "right now" is no fun. These Poise pads seem like a lifesaver.

  7. This is an issue that I never even knew existed. Thank you for sharing... I am thinking I may need to investigate this for myself. Daily, I use panty liners and they have worked for me. These POISE pads sound even better!

  14. Lol! This post was hilarious and very informative. I didn't realize that there was a difference between the pads you use for your periods and the ones you use for your bladder. Or that so many women had an issue with LBL. You learn something new every day! That coin purse though...

  17. This post reminds me to do my kegels. If I am like other women in my family I will likely have this problem after having children. I will be checking out poise then.

    P.S. your change purse is something else. LOL
