I’m sharing my leaky bladder confessions, as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars, to show the world that women of all ages can benefit from Poise Thin-Shape pads. #RecycleYourPeriodPad
Except I don’t drink coffee. Homegirl is just there for the carbs and Wifi. What can I say? I like sugary treats just as much as the next girl, and my bladder leaks just like the girl next to her. Leaky bladders are a thing. Almost like death and taxes, but not.
What the what?
Yes, there is a leaky bladder in my 20 something pants.
Let me paint a picture for the ladies contemplating pushing a watermelon out of their lady bits. It changes you in more ways than you think. You develop the ability to transform into a mama bear in the blink of an eye and you sometimes lose control of your bladder. (I say sometimes because the facts say light bladder leakage is a 1 in 3 kind of thing.)
Sure, I sprinkled here and there after Michael, but it wasn’t a big problem for this panty hoarder.
After Maverick, though, it was game on! One minute I was taking care of an inconsolable baby and the next I was peeing as I dropped my drawers… in front of the toilet! I was maybe 6 inches from the toilet bowl? There was a lot of “Babe, I need new pants. I peed on myself again.” going on.
I was driving home one evening when I felt the bubbles in my rectum. I set my cruise control, put my left foot on the foot rest for a bit of tension, and pushed. I wanted that good for nothing fart out, out, out!
It didn’t come out.
In fact, the only thing escaping my nether regions was a sprinkle. A sprinkle I was not prepared for, so I did what any rational woman should have done. I chuckled to myself and said, “At least I didn’t poop myself. Again.” (Anyone who has followed me for any amount of time knows I am fluent in bowel incontinence. It’s my thing.)
Live and learn, guys. I would have stayed dry had I hit the head before I left the movie theater.
Spoiler… it’s not me.
I traded my mesh granny panties and frozen pads, pads that are not meant for LBL, for Poise Thin-Shape pads. I have yet to need their services, but it’s only been a few weeks and I am actively trying to protect my brand new stash of panties, so I voluntarily sport something thin and flexible, and designed to help me manage leaks.
Doesn’t every woman include a panty overhaul in their pregnancy contract?
Now that I know there is a difference between a pad for LBL and a period pad, I’m breaking out the glue gun for a craft of epic proportions! Until then, grab a free sample and stay dry!
Catch ya on the flip side.
