Let’s Talk About Bladder Leaks For Women

This sponsored conversation about bladder leaks for women is written by me on behalf of Always Discreet. The opinions and text are all mine.

bladder leaks for women

Women will often discuss the gory details of their experiences with childbirth and menstrual issues. However, no one seems to talk about bladder leaks for women. I’ve only ever heard my aunts and grandmother talk about it. It always seemed to happen during family gatherings. The adults would start reminiscing about the good old days and then eventually the laughter would start.  That’s when you’d hear one of them say something like “I laughed so hard I peed my pants.” For some reason, back then I just thought it was an expression. I had no idea it was so common. 

In fact, 1-in-3 women experience bladder issues. And 1-in-2 African-American women experience bladder leaks. Therefore, there is a chance that one of your friends is experiencing it but hasn’t said anything.

Because of this, many women who experience bladder leakage feel alone and ashamed. Incontinence has always been one of those topics that people are not comfortable discussing. The social stigma around bladder leaks in women means that some people won’t even tell their close friends about it. Some won’t even seek treatment even though it is very treatable.

I think the more conversations we have about this topic, the less it will feel like a stigma.  In fact, many celebrities have recently opened up about their bladder leaks to let others know that they are not alone. This is a great way to remind us all that it can happen to anyone, and that it’s nothing to be ashamed of.

Although so many women experience bladder issues, only about 1-in-9 African American women are using bladder leak products that can help in dealing with this issue. Most of these women reach for the same products they use during their monthly period which may not be effective. 

Always Discreet products are a great option for those who need reliable protection. Their product line includes liners, pads, and underwear. Like the name implies, they are individually wrapped and are very discreet. The liners are perfect for light bladder leaks. They absorb 2x more than the leading period liner. If you find that you need more protection, you can use the pads or the underwear. Their double LeakGuards™ protection helps stop leaks at the legs where they happen most. The pads are up to 45% thinner than the leading incontinence brand. The underwear has a 360 FormFit™ design with a contoured core to hug your curves for a smooth, comfortable fit, unlike bulky adult diapers. 

Alway Discreet’s OdorLock™ technology helps trap and neutralize odors. In addition, their RapidDry™ Technology soaks up leaks within seconds and traps wetness for hours to improve the comfort level of affected women. They safeguard against heavy leaks and are designed to make bladder leakage feel like it isn’t that big of a deal.
