The first time I had problems with urinary incontinence was about a year after my oldest daughter was born – I was running on the treadmill (thankfully at home) after I had put my daughter to bed, trying to get my workout in. I was pushing myself more and more trying to get myself back into the ‘before baby’ body. I increased the speed on my treadmill to the max and was pushing my body to my limit, when suddenly I felt a warm, wet sensation running down my leg -I hadn’t even realized what had happened, but I had experienced my first ‘issue’ with urinary incontinence!
After the initial shock, and then the laughter (hey, you have to learn to laugh at yourself!) I was thankful I wasn’t at the gym when this happened (imagine how I would of felt then? I really doubt I would of been able to laugh at myself!)
I thought it was something I had done, I started doing kegal exercises, not ‘holding’ it as long putting more stress on my bladder, but despite my attempts it happened again (though not as much) when I started laughing at something funny my kids had done. Fortunately again, I was at home, and the embarrassment was minimal. But what if I had been out in public? At work? What would help me “control” something in essence that was out of control?
That’s when I was introduced to Poise Impressa.
Designed for the temporary management of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) in women, Impressa Bladder Supports are a non-absorbent, removable product that helps stop bladder leaks before they happen. Available over the counter, Impressa Bladder Supports are inserted into the vagina like a tampon to gently lift and give support to the urethra. This added support to the urethra helps prevent urine from leaking.
I picked up my sizing kit at Walmart, to figure out which one works best for me – Impressa doesn’t fit like jeans or undies, so you start with size 1 and if you still experience leakage, you move up to 2, and then to 3.
Poise Impressa gives me the freedom – and confidence – to carry on with my life without worry of having another incident. I can run on the treadmill at the gym, or laugh along with family and friends without worrying, or feeling embarrassed.
Nearly 50% of women suffer from some form of UI during their lifetime*. Don’t let it stop you – try Poise impressa for bladder support!
