Don’t Just Cover it up, Stop Leakage Before it Starts #TryImpressa
You’re out with your sweetie or your girlfriends laughing and having a great time. What could ruin all that fun you’re having? Stress Urinary Incontinence or Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) – Ugh… what a bummer. Even with a pad or the Amazing Silhouette Active Briefs you still have urine that has leaked. That’s not the most romantic or fun feeling.
I’m a mother of 7 children, all vaginal deliveries; thankfully I have very very minimal leakage if any. In the past bladder leakage has had a stigma to it. It’s been associated with women in general, weight issues, childbearing and age. Lately, the barriers are being broken and more and more women are talking about it. We’re becoming a more aware and accepting society when it comes to certain issues like this.
I’ve seen a lot of bladder incontinence working for many years as an OB/GYN nurse and Labor and Delivery nurse. Stress Urinary Incontinence is a thing many women and yes even men really deal with. Women with kids, no kids, young, active, sedentary just an array of people have had to deal with Stress Urinary Incontinence.
In the past is was just a problem we all had to deal with. Then surgical solutions came out that posed even more problems. What were we left to do? Hide it and accept leakage as a part of life.
Thank you to the amazing folks over at Kimberly Clark’s Poise, they didn’t want to just settle on helping women with bladder leakage to cover it up and just deal with it. They’ve come up with a seriously revolutionary way to stop urinary incontinence. They have introduced Poise Impressa! A non-surgical way to help women stop leaks, not just hide them!
What is Poise Impressa? This is an amazing new product that looks and feels just like a tampon. You use it just like you would a tampon. Are you wondering how that could help the urinary system?
