You won’t believe what happens when I sneeze…or laugh too hard or exercise vigorously. Oh the joys of having children and getting older. *sigh*
I want to share a secret with you all that a lot of women, especially younger ones, are too embarrassed to mention. Over 51 million American women experience bladder leakage. That’s 1 in 3 American women and I happen to one of those 51 million women! There are many common causes of bladder leakage in women including pregnancy, childbirth and even diabetes. For me, my issues started when I was pregnant with my first daughter. I even had my midwife check me to make sure my amniotic fluid wasn’t leaking. Talk about embarrassing! In my case I was dealing with bladder leakage. I always assumed this was an issue for people that were A LOT older than me. Boy was I wrong!
Not only did I have to deal with this issue when I sneezed or coughed but now it was interfering with me trying to stay fit. This is where I draw the line. It was either lay off working out and pack on some unnecessary pounds or try to get my sexy back and risk “tinkling my undies” while exercising. Neither would be a good look, but thankfully there are ways to help deal with this.
To support the over 51 million women who experience bladder leakage, the Depend brand is introducing Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs, a new moderate-absorbency brief that features a thin design for complete comfort with the trusted protection of the Depend brand and a lower rise+for an underwear-like look, fit and feel.
