Sponsored Post: Take On Life’s Changes with Poise!

2013-08-03 04.45.31 (360x480)



Most women have a LBD (little black dress) as a staple in their closet, but did you know that one in three women has LBL (light bladder leakage)? If you’ve ever had an oopsie moment after a sneezing or coughing fit, a really good belly laugh or when having to break into a run after the mailman, you know exactly what I mean. Light Bladder Leakage affects 40 million women and I’m one of them. I have come to trust Poise to help relieve my menopause symptoms, (the Poise Roll On Cooling Gel has been a live saver) and I trust Poise as my solution to LBL as well.

My first oopsie moment occurred at my daughter’s gymnastics class. That particular day was “parents day” and the coaches were giving parents a turn on the trampoline. Not just jumping on the trampoline, but getting strapped in a harness and flipping upside down on the trampoline! You had to get a few really high jumps in and then grab your knees and flip over. I did it! But I also leaked. I had nowhere to hide–I was strapped in a harness in front of kids, coaches and parents! Luckily that was the first time and I had very light leakage. Now that I’m in the throes of menopause, my leakage is a little worse, but being able to rely on Poise pads gives the confidence I need to not let LBL stop me from be active and doing the things I enjoy doing.

You may be surprised that I’m not embarrassed to share my LBL with you. Believe me, most of my friends have had episodes and we often joke about it. At my age and after having children, LBL is just a part of growing older. I’m just thrilled that Poise has options that make me feel comfortable, clean and fresh. With Poise liners and pads, it’s one less thing I have to worry about and therefore it becomes a non-issue.

Poise liners are available in five absorbencies light to ultimate. Poise liners are made specifically for bladder leaks; period pads don’t absorb as quickly so you’re more likely to leak. They are no larger or thicker than period pads and made with an absorb-loc core to stay three times drier and neutralize odor for discreet protection. details_liners_callout

I’m so grateful LBL is out in the open and women are acknowledging it. I no longer have to feel that I’m the only one with this problem!  Wearing Poise Ultra Thins every day allows me to feel confident being active, laughing  AND  especially during allergy season!  For more information about LBL and Poise products, click here.
