Holiday Hosting #Giveaway #Underwareness CAN 17/12


Have you experienced bladder leakage?  I have!  It’s uncomfortable; I’ll admit, but there are ways to deal with this.

 Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

One huge way is to break through the stigma of leakage.  Bladder leakage affect our personal and even our professional lives. Frequent interruption of work for toilet breaks, the loss of concentration and ability to perform basic tasks can affect work performance and productivity. There is a loss of confidence that comes with bladder leakage. Women will stop doing things they love, like exercising or visiting new places, because they’re afraid a leak will happen or they won’t be able to find a bathroom when needed. The stigma related to bladder leakage forces the sufferers to change significantly their lifestyle to dissociate themselves from a condition often attributed to elderly people.

Bladder leakage is a symptom, not a disease, and may be caused by a number of factors.

Bladder leakage, also known as urinary incontinence, is a problem of the urinary system. Normally, the bladder stores urine, which is continually produced by the kidneys, until it sends the brain a signal that it needs to be emptied. When any part of the urinary system malfunctions, or if there’s an interruption of the signals between the bladder and the brain, urine leakage can result.

Despite what you may think, bladder leakage is something that affects 3.3 million Canadians (that’s 1-in-10 !) of all ages and backgrounds, mostly women. Despite the prevalence of this issue, why are we afraid to talk about it? Women shouldn’t feel embarrassed, confused or have to change their lifestyle because of leaks. It’s time we stand together in female solidarity and bring awareness to this topic, showing women that their life doesn’t have to change since there are many discreet solutions that can help – like the new Silhouette Active Fit brief from  Depend, that’s designed to look, fit and feel like real underwear.

  1. Well from your post it could be this, “When any part of the urinary system malfunctions, or if there’s an interruption of the signals between the bladder and the brain, urine leakage can result”

    For me it’s sneezing.

  2. I started leaking after my hysterectomy and sometimes it’s bad and the following year I will be fine, with me I have no idea why but all I know is if I go anywhere I need to know where the bathrooms are!!

  3. I believe it is caused by weakened muscles from having children although I do believe if you faithfully do your kegels it really helps.

  4. I also think that childbirth has something to do with it! After having 3 kids I can pretty much forget jumping on the trampoline without a little squirt happening and don’t even start on the whole not knowing you had to go until you sneezed or laughed thing. Happy Holidays!
