Worried about that "Oopsie" moment when you sneeze, cough, laugh, run?
It is so, so common, and affects 1 in 3 women who have had a baby, and about half of post-menopausal women.
Incontinence affects men, too. It is not gender-specific.
But we don't talk about this much so it remains our little secret, doesn't it? Something we put up with. Keep quiet about. Maybe you have seen your mum and grandmother struggle with it, maybe your friends quietly admit to it. Products like Tena Lady are out there because there is demand for them.
But is it a normal part of life?
NO. It is common, but not normal. And we can definitely do something about it.
Are you thinking Kegel squeezes? Well, sometimes they are contra-indicated. Often they are bad for us or do not do anything to help.
A healthy pelvic floor that supports your pelvic organs is a whole-body approach which starts with great breathing mechanics. A healthy pelvic floor is resilient and keeps our organs in place, preventing prolapse.
If you have tried Kegels and they have not worked for you, perhaps a different approach is needed.
