Argh, what’s she saying?
I think it’s time.
Time to talk about the worst kept secret.
It seems to be the talk in the press recently, but mainly for the wrong reasons. Whilst most brands are shouting from the rooftops it’s perfectly OK to wet yourself, when it isn’t, I for one am happy to talk about this sensitive subject but think there should be a certain way it’s done.
First things first.
It happens to everyone including men. But if you’ve been keeping it a secret know that you’re not alone. Laughing, sneezing, running, swimming, jumping or even coughing can cause us to leak. Whilst some of my friends are still a bit ooh-er about discussing the topic, I think it’s fair to say I’m not bothered and want to reach out to others and let it be known, I’m here for you. It shouldn’t be embarrassing, or it shouldn’t be made to feel embarrassing, when it’s a perfectly normal thing to happen to people, yes men definitely experience it too and it can happen at any age, not just older people.
So let’s start with some facts shall we?
- 1 in 3 women experience bladder leaks.
- When the pelvic floor muscle becomes weak or damaged it isn’t strong enough to prevent the bladder from leaking.
- Weakness can occur due to childbirth, pregnancy and during menopause.
- Due to no fault of their own, many women struggle to do their pelvic floor muscles correctly.
- The NHS recommends Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercises as its first line treatment- but research shows that up to 50% of women have problems doing their Pelvic Floor Exercises correctly.
- Women tend to think the only choices are panty liners & incontinence pads. Pads are expensive and do nothing to solve the problem.
- Women using incontinence pads could be spending over £400 a year.
Bladder leaks has a massive impact on women’s daily lives, significantly affecting their quality of life, but it really shouldn’t. Stop letting the P take over your life.
