Did you know that 1 in 4 women will experience bladder weakness at some point in their life?

Did you know that urinary incontinence (bladder weakness) is as common as hay fever or grey hair?

In fact, 1 in 4 women will experience bladder weakness at some point in their life. Common causes of incontinence include obesity, urinary tract infections, medications, menopause, pregnancy, diabetes, or stroke to name a few.

The three main types of incontinence are:

  • Stress incontinence: When we laugh, jump, cough or lift something heavy – the increased pressure on the bladder, results in the pelvic floor muscles not being able to tighten enough to keep all the urine in.
  • Urge Incontinence: Urge incontinence is a sudden and pressing need to urinate, leading to leaks. This is caused by the bladder contracting when it shouldn’t, causing urine to leak through the muscles holding it closed.
  • Mixed incontinence: A combination of stress and urge incontinence. However, you may probably notice that only one of them is prominent.

Depending on the type of incontinence you may experience, the amount of urine leakage can vary greatly, but in some cases, it’s just a few drops. Nevertheless, even the smallest amount of leakage can be enough to cause worry and discomfort. That’s why it’s important to choose a form of protection that’s both effective and discreet.

Many women use regular sanitary pads to deal with bladder weakness – but there’s a big difference between blood and urine – so using sanitary pads is not the best thing. Period pads are not built to deal with urine – menstrual blood is heavier and comes out more slowly, while urine is more fluid and comes out in larger quantities.

So, you need a product that is designed for more rapid absorption as well as the elimination of odour.

    My mom suffered from this for the longest time after she got diagnosed with hypertension and i remember how it was a struggle to get adult diapers that would be a good fit. Someone introduced Tena to us and to be honest it became way better.

    I broke my neck in a car accident. I do use tablets for my bladder but I still have a problem with leakage and the normal pads do not work sufficient. I experience skin rashes. I would love to try some thing that works.

  3. Thuli says:

    This is such perfect timing, my friend and I were talking about pantyliners that just don’t do the job and we are in the search of something that actually works. I hope we have found it, we both have 3 kids each so I can relate to most of the women here.

    I have a prolapsed bladder and uterus, and it is extremely uncomfortable. I am now experiencing sores and skin rashes due to being damp all the time. Period pads definitely do not work anymore.
