Ladies, say it with me…it can be hard to be a woman. That’s why I’m really happy that Poise sponsored this post for me as a member of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network, so I could tell you all about the Seize Your Poise Moment program. Did you know that 1 in 3 women experience light bladder leakage (LBL)? Maybe you are one of them – these are the common little leaks which can be triggered by exercise, laughing, coughing and sneezing. And if there’s one thing that can do it to us women, it’s our lovely children – many women experience LBL during and after pregnancy, but it’s still not something that we talk too much about.
Our discomfort in talking about LBL leads to some unfortunate results. Even though period pads are not designed for LBL, many women use them instead of products specifically designed for those LBL leaks. That’s why Poise teamed up with the super gorgeous super mom Brooke Burke-Charvet (seriously, could she be any cuter?) to help educate women about LBL and let them seize their Poise moment…check out this video before you read any further…
It’s pretty refreshing to hear such openness and honesty about a problem that so many are afraid to talk about. I am a fairly active person, and I have run on and off throughout my life, sometimes competitively. I had a dear friend who has since passed away that I used to run races with. It was a huge source of embarrassment for her that exercise would often induce LBL. While I didn’t talk with her in-depth about it, I knew that when she was worried about it she would be very uncomfortable. Relieving that discomfort is the whole point of the Seize Your Poise Moment Campaign – to help educate women and empower them to keep living their lives and use products like the Poise Thin-Shape Light Absorbency pads – which is specifically designed for LBL.
New Poise Thin-Shape Light Absorbency pads are the thinnest pads on the market for LBL, and we definitely deserve the best and least intrusive method to deal with LBL that is out there. Unlike period pads, Poise Thin-Shape pads have Thin-Flex technology that are 40 percent thinner than original Poise brand pads and are designed to move with your body. Check out how thin they are:
Even though they are thin, they provide 3-in-1 protection for dryness, comfort, and odor control. They stay three times drier than leading period pads (so ditch them already!). And with leak-block sides, you don’t have to let LBL hold you back. I know that if I ever have an issue, I won’t let LBL interfere with my running or make me uncomfortable.
If LBL is an issue for you, and you have been relying on period pads to get you through, visit the Poise website to learn more and request a sample. Don’t let LBL hold you back from seizing your Poise moment another day!
Have you or someone you love been affected by LBL? How could Poise help you seize your moment if you experience (or were to start experiencing) LBL?
