WHAT IS LIGHT BLADDER LEAKAGE?
Leaking of urine with certain activities that put pressure on the bladder or inability to hold urine when there is a strong urge or an overactive bladder is the essence of Light Bladder Leakage (LBL).
The muscles and internal structures surrounding the urethra or tube that urine passes through, can become weakened or lax and fail to hold urine in.
The First Challenge
The first challenge with LBL is getting up the courage to talk about it and seek help.
LBL can happen to women at any age and especially increases with pregnancy, childbearing, and menopause. It is NOT considered a normal sign of aging or a disease in and of itself. However, 1 in 3 women experience some form of LBL as they age.
- Quickly crossing your legs when sneezing, coughing, or laughing is often a futile attempt to keep from wetting your pants.
- Not being able to hold your urine when heading to the bathroom. Why are your keys so hard to find in your purse at these times? Another pair of pants and undies in the laundry basket.
- Feeling the need to pee all the time making you the “queen of mapping out where all the bathrooms are”.
- Wearing black pants to cover up leaks may help, but does nothing to cover up the odor.
- During intimacy, a sudden, unexpected leaking of urine can be horribly embarrassing and now adds the sheets to your growing laundry pile.
- Jumping on a trampoline? Forget it!
