Manage your LBL with Poise Thin-Shape Pads and #RecycleYourPeriodPadSunday, July 5, 2015

Ladies, can we talk for a second about the yellow elephant in the room? I know you may be embarrassed, but it's so common, you shouldn't be. Did you know that 1 in 3 women experience LBL (Light Bladder Leakage)?
It's those little leaks that can happen by coughing, sneezing, laughing, or during exercise. It's most common during pregnancy and after childbirth, but did you know it can also happen during bladder or urinary tract infections, after eating certain foods or beverages that are bladder irritants, after surgeries, a stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson's disease?
A lot of women still use period pads to manage their LBL. You may think they're good enough, but there is a better (thinner) way. Also, you don't have to waste all of those unused period pads; Recycle them!
1. Lipstick blotter
2. Cushioned Insoles
3. A Cute Clutch Bag
Why let your unused period pads go to waste when you can recycle them to clean, take off nail polish, or make crafts with the kids? The possibilities are endless, and I want to see yours! You can get in on the fun by sharing your silly, funny, or lifehack-y photos on social media with the hashtag #RecycleYourPeriodPad. Anything would be better than using them for LBL.
I knew it was coming; My mother had warned me years ago. I remember her sneezing or coughing and having to run to the bathroom, and she told me that it's something that happens to a lot of women after childbirth. After I had my first child, lo and behold, a really hard sneeze would send me running too. After my second child, well, it happened so much more often.
I started out using period pads too, but they're not made for LBL. You may think that they're good enough, but when it comes to LBL, dryness matters. A period pad was made for a different use. I just didn't know my options. I imagined something thick and huge. Or maybe an adult diaper, lol! I wasn't willing to go that route.
Maybe the pads for LBL in the past were huge, but now there are the brand-new Poise Thin-Shape Pads. They come in different absorbencies and they're thin; Made just for LBL, they're made of Super Absorbent Material (SAM) to keep you 3x drier than period pads.
Up to 40% thinner than original Poise brand pads, they're made specifically for bladder leaks with the trusted absorbency of Poise brand. They're as thin as a pantyliner, but with a Thin-Flex design and elastic sides to conform to your own shape. No gaps, no leaks. Wings-shmings.
