Oh, the joys of pregnancy and childbirth! Did you ever think that along with the stretch marks, leaky breasts, and extra weight, you’d have to also deal with a weak bladder?
Well sheesh, after all that pushing – even if you’ve had a C-section – muscles in that entire region of the female body takes a beating. Childbirth completely loosens up all things in that area… inside, and out!
For many women, this is what happens after having kids! You can cough or sneeze, even laugh hysterically, and leak, requiring a change of underwear. It doesn’t matter if you try to hold in that sneeze, that dribble will still happen. Yes, I remember having a few of my own experiences where I’d have to squeeze my legs and run to the bathroom!
Did you ever think you’d have bladder incontinence at your age? Heck no! But the truth is, it’s a normal thing many women of all ages have to deal with. It’s one of the most common problems experienced by new moms, affecting about a third in the first year after having their baby. So if you’re experiencing this, you are not alone!
It takes time for those pelvic muscles to heal after giving birth, and strengthen them too. Do those Kegels, ladies! In the meantime, there’s help. Poise® pads are thin, comfortable and keep you much drier than other products on the market.
Poise® provides the best protection for your leaks, try the new Thin-Shape pads at Walmart with a $2 off coupon here.
