If you’re a mom or are going through menopause then you’ve probably had an “oops, a little pee came out” moment. As embarrassing as this may be, there are several real reasons for it, and it is called Light Bladder Leakage or LBL. Thanks to a very educational campaign from Poise, a lot of women are being educated on LBL and how to recycle period pads.
Light Bladder Leakage (LBL)
Did you know that 1 in 3 women experience Light Bladder Leakage? However, many women use period pads to manage it, when they should be using Poise. Poise is specifically designed for LBL. It offers the kind of dryness that cannot be offered by a period pad. Period pads are for periods, not for LBL!
Light Bladder Leakage can be triggered under many everyday situations, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise. I’ve even had it happen when I have a cold and I’m trying to blow my nose. It’s a little frustrating since you already don’t feel well! I’ve also experienced not having to go, or having to go but not urgently to suddenly not being able to hold it. Walking with crossed legs in front of my children is not an image I want imprinted on their brains!
There are many different reasons why women develop LBL. The weakening of the pelvic floor muscles can be caused by pregnancy, childbirth, weight gain, hysterectomy or menopause,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 the list goes on.
Poise is introducing a brand new pad that is Thin in shape and flexible to move with your body, Thin-Flex. They are 40% thinner than the original Poise brand pads. They feature a new Super Absorbent Material (SAM) that will keep you 3x drier than period pads. Poise will help you take care of any “OOPS” moments with confidence.
Whether you are at a BBQ, playing with your kids, or traveling, it’s so reassuring to know that any moments you have of LBL will be your little secret. Go out and enjoy the summer activities with confidence! Those period pads you have lying around? Recycle them!
Jump on board this campaign that women everywhere are joining. You can start by grabbing your free sample of Poise.
Are you still using those period pads for LBL, or have you made the switch to Poise? You’ll be happy you did. 😉
