Leaking in No Laughing Matter

By Blogger July 6, 2015 - 9:32am

I don’t know about you but in my 40s I know that because I have had a child my risk for leaking is higher, but still, it sucks.

I cough out loud, I pee. I sneeze hard, I pee. I laugh really loud and hard, I pee.

When I pee in my pants from coughing, sneezing or laughing, I either hold my legs together tight hoping not to pee or say “oh sh*t” knowing that there was nothing I could do to stop the pee.

It just comes out. Argh!!!

I know that there are procedures or surgeries to help prevent this problem, however, they are not a guarantee for results. I am not willing to go through that and risk limited or no benefit, and recovery at the same time.

I have tried Kegel exercises more times that I can count. They aren’t working.

While I know that I am not alone, this still stinks. I often have to bring along a pad or extra pair of panties, just in case.

For many of us, this is no laughing matter. While, sometimes, after the “pee” we do laugh because we have no control and it is seemingly funny.

It's gotten to a point where my preschooler hears me sneeze and then asks me if I have peed in my pants.

I have tried a number of different products from wearing pads often to also wearing panties with a pad build in. The latter worked great but only if I had a pair for every day. Maybe I should consider that.

What do you do to manage your annoying, unexpected, bothersome leaks?
