A Simple Solution to LBL

Before having a child, I remember overhearing the mothers of my family joking that they couldn't laugh or sneeze without peeing themselves a bit. I didn't realize the reason behind this but I was certain that there was no way I was going to ever have this issue. #thehorror Time went on and I became a mother myself and now I found myself all to aware of what the mothers before me were talking about. The dreaded LBL .

What is LBL? One in three women experience Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) – little leaks that can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise. What causes light bladder leakage? Just as no two women are alike, there's no single reason that leaks happens. Some of the most common things that lead to uninvited leaks include:

+ Physical changes from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause
+ Being overweight
+ Complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson's disease
+ Bladder or urinary tract infections
+ Bladder irritants (certain foods and beverages)

Managing LBL is easier than every thanks to Poise® thin-shaped pads.
