In an earlier post, I talked about the changes that my body has made over the last ten years or so, and how bladder leakage is a real problem – not just for me, but for a lot of women.
Not to give TMI but a lot of people don’t realize that you can’t tighten the muscles that close off the urethra. So when you cough, sneeze, exercise – or even laugh – your urine may leak because of the extra pressure caused by an overactive bladder muscle. And there’s really nothing you can do about it at that point (physically, at least).
It’s not really something anyone can help. It’s life, and sometimes there are things that you just can’t change. So – don’t worry, be happy!
The first step to not worrying and being happy is to do what you can to make those worries go away – for example, using products like Depend® Silhouette Active Fit to take the worry out of dealing with bladder incontinence. Whether you are worried about issues while exercising at the gym, sneezing constantly during allergy season, or laughing at dinner with your girlfriends, Depend® Silhouette Active fit helps ease your worries and gives you the chance to just be happy!
What I love about Depend® Silhouette Active fit is that it’s made from a cotton-like fabric – it’s completely smooth and comfortable under your clothes – and it’s nearly impossible for anyone to notice you are wearing one. They also come in three colors (beige, lavender, and black) so they can be worn no matter what the occasion or what you’re wearing on top.
