Bladder Leakage Protection For Oopies #DropYourPants #Underawareness

This is not a topic that most people like to openly discuss, but it is one that we all face at one point or another. I am referring to the little leaks that sneak out when you laugh too hard, cough at the wrong time, or when you have to sneeze. You know those times when you have that total awareness of what you just did and are panicked that everyone else around you knows too.

My “problem” came into play after I had my first child 11 years ago. I was so surprised at the lack of control I had to prevent bladder leakage. My OB/GYN recommended I do Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor several times a day. I practiced this exercise a lot and was able to get back to my original “form”.

Then 4 years later I had twins. That completely ruined my pelvic floor. I mean, if I had the urge to go, I needed to get there immediately, I had absolutely no ability to wait at all. Again, my OB/GYN recommended the Kegel exercises. However, he suggested doing them while I was using the bathroom and work on stopping in mid-stream. After quite a while, longer than it took with my first-born, I finally had enough control to at least make it to the bathroom when the urge first hit and then some.

However, I do not think my control will ever be what it was like before kids or when I was longer. Did you know that 1 in 4 Americans experience bladder leakage. That’s 3 million Americans with bladder leakage are under 50 and about 12 million are under the age of 35. You are totally not in the minority if you are a sufferer of bladder incontinence.
