I don’t about you all but I suffer from LBL also known as Light Bladder Leakage. I would love to say this is something that has just started happening since I have gotten older. That sounds good right? WRONG! I have had it for a while and I’m talking to the point that my younger brother likes to make me laugh hard enough to…well tinkle a little because he finds it funny. Brothers, what can do? The good news is that I am not alone in my suffering. Well with LBL at least I may be alone in the sibling suffering area. In fact 1 in 3 women experience LBL and if you don’t already know it can be triggered by exercise, laughing, coughing and sneezing. It can also be experienced during and after pregnancy.
What’s is a girl to do when she has adventures to go on not to mention everyday life? She wears a pad and I am hear to tell you that although there are products specifically designed for LBL, like many other women, I was using the same pads I used for my Aunt Flo visits but those aren’t designed for that purpose. Honestly I felt that if I had to turn to the other products it meant that I was old. I’m not old! Let’s not talk about numbers here!! Even though that same brother did get me a pack of diapers for our last trip cause he figured that way we wouldn’t have to stop and deal with anything. The problem is that as a society we have preconceived notions about things and LBL products are one of those.
When this campaign hit my inbox I knew that it was right up my alley! I have tons of “Stop I think I wet myself” moments and while they aren’t always pleasant it is a part of life. The best thing is that I can laugh about them right along with everyone else. However I was very inserted in the information and thrilled to find out that the Poise brand teamed up with Brooke Burke-Charvet. They want to not only educate women about LBL but to also empower them to seize their Poise moment.
What is a Poise Moment?
It is that exact point where you stop letting leaks interrupt your life and reach for products, like Poise Thin-Shape Light Absorbency pads, that are designed for your personal need. My moment came about a week ago when I had a meeting at church I needed to attend. I was actually out of my regular pads and had the ones sent for me for this campaign laying in the bathroom. I thought well this is it, then I called my brother to tell him I was officially old so we could have a good laugh. I wore the Poise pads and never felt better! I didn’t have a single moment where I thought things were going to end with me embarrassing myself. Did I feel old? NOPE!! Not even little bit! I was able to move around much more freely and felt confident that they would hold. Poise Thin-Shape pads feature Thin-Flex Technology which moves with your body, an Absorb-loc core that quickly locks away wetness and odor, plus leak-block sides for outstanding protection. They are 40% thinner than the original and stay three times drier!
Seize Your Poise Moment
One thing I have learned during all of this is that not only I but all women deserve the best options available to manage LBL. The Poise brand offers products that allow me to live my life the way that I chose without having to worry about my LBL. It isn’t about how society thinks or even how much fun of me my little brother makes (I swear though I’m paying him back on his birthday this year.)
