Getting out and being active is a big part of our lives. We love everything from playing baseball and volleyball to hiking, biking, skiing, skating, and running. These activities have brought so many memories – and also challenges. These sometimes challenging sports became even more so after having children. It wasn’t quite as easy for me to run or jump and be confident that I wouldn’t have any uh-oh Light Bladder Leakage moments. In fact, I briefly thought that my days of enjoying athletics were all-together over with. I mean, I couldn’t sneeze, cough or laugh without fear that something would go wrong!
But I was wrong. I had a lot of misconceptions about Light Bladder Leakage – and perhaps you might as well!
Top Myths about Bladder Leakage
Pregnancy-induced incontinence is permanent.
I was terrified that this would be a permanent situation. I love running and being active and was certain that I wouldn’t be able to continue. Luckily, I had a great doctor who explained that it was very common and that I could certainly help myself through exercise and strengthening key muscle groups.
If you have bladder problems, it’s wise to avoid rigorous exercise.
Don’t let LBL keep you from being active. Grab a Poise Liner and exercise with confidence! I went from being very active to fearing that a sneeze would let everything go. Now, I’m running half-marathons!
Feel confident and in control with worry-free incontinence protection from Poise Maximum Pads, specifically designed for Light Bladder Leaks (LBL). Poise Pads instantly absorb wetness, staying 3X drier than leading period-only pads.† The Maximum Pads are 40% more absorbent than Poise Moderate Pads, for more protection when you need it.
Wearing a sanitary napkin is fine for bladder-leak protection.
A sanitary napkin isn’t designed for this type of fluid or odor. Poise incontinence panty liners stay 3X drier than leading regular size feminine care liners where needed most because they are specifically designed for Light Bladder Leakage (LBL). The Absorb-Loc core quickly locks away wetness and protects against incontinence odor to help keep you fresh and dry. Now THINNER, Same Protection.

Our Absorb-Loc® core quickly locks away wetness and odor and the Leak-Block* sides give you discreet and worry-free protection. The Dry-Touch® layer helps keep you feeling dry and fresh.

Drinking as little as possible can improve incontinence.
This one is just scary! You need to keep yourself hydrated – and regardless of the little amount of fluids you take in – LBL can still make a mark on your day. Remember to hydrate, talk to your health care provider and grab a Poise Liner.
