Summer is right around the corner, and that means swimsuits, dresses, skirts and shorts! As moms who have children we know our bodies are never going to be like it was before kids. Our body changes and with those changes we may experience LBL also known as light bladder leakage. Come on, you can admit it. It’s normal nothing to be ashamed of.
What is LBL? That’s a good question. One in three women experience Light Bladder Leakage, little leaks that can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise.
- Weak pelvic floor muscles
- weight gain
Those are just a few LBL contributors.
What causes LBL?
Just as no two women are the same, there’s no single reason that LBL happens. Some of the most common things that lead to uninvited leaks include:
- Physical change from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause
- Being overweight
- Complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson’s Disease.
- Bladder or UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)
- Badder irritants (certain foods or beverages)

I recently started working out again and when I’m moving around a lot, sweating I know I can experience an accidentally LBL. With the Poise® Thin-Shape Pads I don’t have to worry, I can move around feeling confident that I can continue my daily exercises without running to the restroom. When I used to wear the other period pads they would bunch up or feel like you were wearing a diaper. I am glad to have found a product that is more discreet in protection. Even though I have other period pads taking up space in my cabinet I can use them instead of just throwing them out.
Here are a few ways I can use them:
Cleaning my windows, dusting my furniture or ceiling fans, wiping off my counters. Using them as coasters to place my drinks on my desk. I know having three kids there are always those bumps and bruises that sometimes a little something with cool effect will help their boo-boos. Try wetting the period pad and placing in the freezer for a bit until it feels a little stiff. These help and are great for the kids to use instead of the big ice packs or bags of ice that leak water . There are so many ways to #RecycleYourPeriodPad. How will you #RecycleyYourPeriodPad? Be creative.
