|Regain your dignity by taking control over your LBL.|
Too often women with incontinence find themselves turning down social invitations, avoiding exercise, and living in fear of leaking if they laugh, cough, jump, or sneeze.
Light incontinence is a common, though not often talked about problem. Men and women alike suffer from this condition, but women, particularly women who have had children, often find that unexpected leaks happen.
How can you gain control over your bladder and get your dignity back?
Talk to a medical professional
Women often fear talking to their doctor about leaking because it is a sensitive and embarrassing subject matter. In fact, most women wait an average of 6 years from their first episode before getting the advice of a doctor. However, it is important to know that it is usually treatable, and talking to your doctor is the first step to getting dignity back. A doctor can run tests, do ultrasounds, or stress tests, and the like to determine the cause, and possible solutions to incontinence.
Start a treatment plan
Treatment of incontinence varies by the type and the case. For most women with light bladder leakage, the type is stress incontinence. Meaning that the bladder involuntarily leaks when stress is put on it, from things like laughing, sneezing, jumping, etc. The muscles that control the bladder may be weakened, or nerves damaged, causing this. The most common treatment plan for women with stress incontinence (possibly due to pregnancy and child birth) is doing Kegel exercises.
Kegel exercises help to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles that control the bladder. However, depending on the cause, the solution may be medication, surgery, bladder training, or something else. Talk to a doctor.
In the meantime, protect and manage the condition while seeking solutions. This is going to help you have dignity despite the condition, and feel confident to be able to go out and about, socialize, exercise, etc.
When protecting and managing, keep the following things in mind:
1. Use products designed specifically for incontinence.
2. Consider the shape, size, and feel for your body.
3. Determine if you need disposable or reusable.
