Insomnia is just one of the many symptoms facing menopausal women.
Insomnia is a common complaint of women going through menopause. Sleep is disrupted because of hot flashes, night sweats, and poor sleep patterns. Many menopausal women find themselves falling asleep, but only sleeping a few hours before waking up. They then find it difficult to fall back asleep.

The cause is disputed. Some say night sweats and hot flashes disrupt REM cycles, and lead to poor sleep. Others suggest that hormonal changes cause insomnia. Others claim that changes to sleep cycles and patterns are a natural part of aging. Whatever the reason, sleep deprivation and insomnia can leave a woman feeling fatigued, irritable, moody, and tense. And, sleep deprivation goes beyond emotional problems, poor sleep has also been associated with heart attacks, congestive heart failure, and other serious cardiovascular problems.

If you are suffering from insomnia due to menopause, talk to your doctor. They can get you on some temporary sleep-aids, treat the underlying problems like hot flashes, that may be keeping you awake, or help you relax for improved sleep.

Insomnia is just one of the many symptoms facing menopausal women. The decrease in estrogen, and hormonal changes can lead to mild symptoms such as mood swings and irritability, or can lead to far more embarrassing symptoms such as light bladder leakage. The estrogen decrease causes the lining of the urethra to thin, when combined with weakened pelvic floor muscles, which are often a result of child-bearing, many women find themselves living with light to moderate incontinence.

Poise Hourglass pads are designed specifically for menopausal age women who are carrying a few extra pounds. Many women find that their regular feminine care, or even incontinence pads do not provide them with the protection they need. They often twist, rope, or bunch, causing them to leak. Poise Hourglass is designed to work with a woman’s body, offering extra protection because of their shape. Some women feel that it took a woman to come up with and hourglass shape. They’re designed to move with you so they stay comfortably in place.

Try Poise Hourglass pads 

They come in three absorbencies/sizes, and offer improved odor control.

Poise was the first pad for incontinence, their first products were introduced in 1992. The Poise Hourglass was introduced in 2012, and while a still relatively new product, few women have tried it, but 43% of those that do, make the switch.

They’re great for nighttime use and offer 8-hour protection. Some women say they provide peace of mind in the middle of the night when they do their dribble dance to the bathroom just in time.

If you are experiencing light bladder leakage due to menopause, or any other cause, and your regular sized incontinence pads are not giving you the protection you need, consider using Poise Hourglass to help manage the symptoms. You can try a sample pack of 4 pads for just $3.49 handling.  Learn more about what Poise Hourglass has to offer and whether or not it would be a good fit for you.  Or call and talk to one of our nice ladies who can help you with all of your product needs, 800-985-1353 M-F 9-4 CST.
