It’s something that can be a source of embarrassment for people everywhere. Light bladder leakage can occur any time throughout the day or night, leaving many to wonder if there’s a solution. Fortunately for many, there is!
However, there are many different reasons why you could be experiencing leakage. Solving the problem requires an understanding of your own body and identifying the reasons why. There are a number of common circumstances contributing to leakage; this blog will address one of the leading causes. Read on to find out more.
One of the most common causes of LBL is known as stress incontinence. It doesn’t refer to anxiety; rather, it means that when there is a sudden increase in pressure on the bladder from basic, everyday actions like laughing, coughing, sneezing, exercise, or any other sustained or sudden movements, there is a chance that a small amount of urine may leak out.
That pressure on the bladder will always occur when you make those movements; that can’t be changed. What we can change is your bladder’s response to the pressure. Think of it like this. If a child and a strong man both had a heavy weight suddenly dropped in their hands, who do you think would be able to hold onto it? The same goes for your bladder; our goal is not to reduce the amount of weight you have to hold, but make you stronger so you don’t drop it.
Making your bladder more resistant to pressure involves strengthening your pelvic floor. These are a series of muscles underneath the pelvis that provide the force necessary to hold the bladder closed. If they’re weak – often as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and certain sports – they won’t be able to hold the bladder closed when that sudden pressure is placed on it.
The solution is the same with all weak muscles – strengthening them through exercise. In this case, it’s through the use of the MEDIballs Secret. These are small weights – either 45 or 90 grams – with a string attached that you insert into your vagina, like a tampon. As you move, the muscles surrounding your MEDIballs Secret contract and expand to keep the item inside, providing a gentle weight training regime that ultimately leads to no more leaks!
