My son is an only child, and he enjoys being the center of attention. Gabe is in the children’s theater and he loves to make people laugh, especially my mom. Gabe will tell silly stories, act out a skit, and tell jokes just to make his Mamaw Lesa laugh. Laughter should be fun experience for most individuals, but for women like my mother who suffer from stress urinary continence, it isn’t always fun. He’ll get her giggling and she’ll have to run to the restroom. This might be an uncomfortable subject for many people, but imagine how is uncomfortable someone living with stress urinary continence feels? I know men go through something similar called Benign prostatic hyperplasia, where the prostate becomes enlarged. Through this, some men have issues going to the toilet, with symptoms being a weak stream or problems urinating. There is medication such as cialis that can help with this. But what is there for women who suffer from stress urinary continence?
I’ve encouraged her to talk with her doctor about the problem, but she often chucks it up “getting older”.
This past summer I took my mom on vacation with us. She hadn’t been on a vacation in a few years, and I figured Gabe would enjoy having his playmate. We did lots of fun stuff around Jekyll Island including visiting the Sea Turtle Rescue Center, visiting the beach, and taking a trolley tour of historic Jekyll Island. While on the tour, my son told an elaborate and amusing tale about a dead opossum (that supposedly belonged to Mrs. Rockefeller). My mom started laughing, and crossing her legs. She had to make a quick stop in to the restroom, and we were lucky it didn’t ruin her outing. We might want to remember Gabe’s opossum story for years to come, but I don’t want to remember that my mom laughed so hard she peed on herself.
Urinary Stress Incontinence (SUI) is a common occurrence, yet it’s rarely talked about. Do you (or does someone you know) leak after sneezing, coughing, laughing, exercise, or even dancing? You might suffer from SUI. There is a great new product from Poise called Poise Impressa Bladder Supports which might help with SUI leaking. They can be worn for up to 8 hours per day.
You should not use Poise Impressa if:
- Under the age of 21
- Are pregnant, may become pregnant, or you have given birth in the last 3 months
- Have pain or burning when you urinate
- Experiencing discharge
- Had vaginal surgery in the last 3 months
It’s always good to talk with your doctor about your SUI symptoms and to discuss whether Poise Impressa Bladder Supports are right for you.
How to use the product:
- Start with size 1, insert the Bladder Support just like you would a tampon.
- The non-absorbent Bladder Support expands.
- If you’re still experiencing leaks, try the next size up until you’ve found the correct support.
*Poise Impressa may look like a tampon, and it’s inserted like one but it is not designed to absorb fluid. It is meant to prevent leaks by helping to support your urethra. You can urinate regularly while wearing the Poise Impressa.
There is a Poise Impressa Bladder Supports Sizing Kit available at CVS. The product comes in three sizes. Correct product size is not determined by weight or amount of leakage, but the best internal fit.
There is a printable coupon for the Poise Impressa Bladder Supports Sizing Kit available here (while supplies last).
