As we ladies get older, things begin to happen...I swear, as soon as I hit 35, I felt like I had one foot in the grave. The grey hairs began multiplying, fine lines began forming around my eyes, I had a breast cancer scare (no worries, it turned out to be totally benign cysts), I got my first age spot/sun spot and I'm experiencing some problematic symptoms that hint at peri-menopause. Seriously?! I think the ONLY thing I am not dealing with yet is bladder issues! Insert pause here while I knock on wood! Quite a few of my girlfriends suffer from bladder leakage after having children, so I feel like I know all about this problem - it's one of the top topics of conversation whenever the girls get together. I figure it's probably going to happen to me sooner rather than later because I can already tell a big difference in how long I can hold my bladder, so I pay attention when I hear the gals talking about it.
One thing I don't hear my friends talking about is using Poise Impressa® Bladder Supports, and as a blogger, I love that I can actually help them by sharing information I've learned from some of my blogging programs!
Poise Impressa® Bladder Supports are a non-absorbent, removable product that helps stop bladder leaks - we're talking preventing them before they even happen! They're available over the counter, and are inserted into your lady parts just like a tampon, so they're super easy to use.
How do Impressa Bladder Supports work?
The concept is simple: they gently lift and support the urethra, and this added support to the urethra is what helps to prevent urine from leaking. If you can insert a tampon, you can insert an Poise Impressa® Bladder Support - they even come with a smooth plastic applicator for maximum comfort when inserting them.
The new Poise Impressa® Bladder Supports are hitting Walmart stores around the country in November 2015, with a sizing kit, then full packages of Size 1, 2 and 3.
Poise Impressa® Bladder Supports are THE FIRST over-the-counter product to be cleared by the FDA for the temporary management of Stress Urinary Incontinence. Impressa comes in three different sizes to adapt to your unique internal shape - you just need to find the right size with the Impressa Sizing Kit, which you can find at your local Walmart. When using them, your leaks may decrease or even stop. Keep in mind that results will vary for every woman, as Impressa can reduce leakage in some, stop leakage in others and may not work for some...I know, I know. It's not fair - is anything in the live of a 30 or 40-something fair? The grey hair I spotted on my chin this morning would suggest otherwise.
There are a lot of things we women over a certain age should know about...like outlet converters that have built in USB pots, 100 calorie Biscotti, nail polish remove PADS y'all!!!, and of course, the new Poise Impressa® Bladder Supports.
Try them out if you suffer from bladder leakage - and pay it forward by telling your friends if they have the same problem! You can find out more on Walmart.com/Impressa.
My momjust recently tried Poise because of a campaign they had running to try a sample free. She never wanted it before then, but now she's sold!
The sizing kit is such a great idea. I bet it's super helpful!
I have been hearing a lot about this and am glad that people are finding the help they need.
I've been seeing this information out on social media often lately. It's good they are getting the info out there to help people!

It is so great that there is something discreet for women who need these type products.
