No More TMI about Bladder Leakage

When I was younger I would laugh when my Mom would turn red faced and embarrassed talking to my Aunt, my sister and myself about having issues with LBL (light bladder leakage). I’d tease her that she was getting old and falling apart, and light-hearted (but mean)  teasing only a young teenager can get away with.

All these years later – too many to count – the shoe is on the other foot as my kids laugh at me when I complain I need to grab a panty liner, or go  change because I had LBL. The first time it happened to me was not long after my oldest was born – I was working out on the treadmill, trying to get back in shape after using my pregnancy as excuse to eat like a glutton, where I was pushing myself to run again, not just merrily walk on the treadmill. I pushed the speed to the highest my cheap-at-home-treadmill would go and I gave it my all. At that time my goal was go to full force for 2-minutes at a time and then slow down to get my heart rate normal again, then do it again (it actually did really great helping with my endurance and all that). Anyway, then it happened -somewhere between 50 seconds and that 2 minute mark, I felt a warm liquid run down my leg.

Yeah. That. It was the first time, but not the last. I was thankful I wasn’t at the gym or running out in public when it happened, but what could I do to prevent such mishaps in the future??


I knew that Poise made a Very Light Absorbency Liner that could help me avoid that conversation, or any other embarrassment associated with LBL – but it’s not like I just wanted to walk up in the store and put those on the counter. It reminds me of those shows and commercials where the cashier will call out over the intercom to get a price check on a very personal product -well, I live in a small town, and I didn’t want that to happen to me.


So of course I did my research, and found that since I am a Sam’s Club Member I can take advantage of the benefits of their Subscription Service with discreet shipping and Club Pickup. No worries
