Feature Friday: What Happens When You Mix Incontinence & Trampolines?
Wahoo! It’s Friday and the weekend is almost in full swing! Before you head out on your fun adventures check out this weeks #featurefriday. If you’re due for a good laugh, you won’t want to miss this post from Jenn of Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog as she gets real about incontinence and being a mommy with bladder leaks.
“Nobody ever told me that having a child causes bladder leakage. Gosh, I remember about a week after having my daughter I decided I would be the cool hip mom and jump on the trampoline with my nephew. OMG, was that ever a mistake and there was no hiding the fact that I peed on myself, especially because my nephew was only three and decided to announce to the whole world that his aunt Jenn peed her pants on the trampoline, lol. Thankfully, the time has gone by, and he’s forgotten about it, but I haven’t and have not been on the trampoline since.”
If you’re a mom, than you might know exactly what Jenn is talking about. Those embarrassing oops moments caused by stress urinary incontinence (SUI) can happen at the most inconvenient times and in the worst places. For Jenn, the leakage happened while jumping on a trampoline. For other moms, urine escapes when they’re working out, lifting a stroller, or laughing. However and wherever it happens, the simple fact is bladder leaks are often embarassing and always uncomfortable.
Jenn recounts another time she was helping her husband barbecue and ran inside to grab the cheese to put on the burgers when she “slipped, fell, and well you know.” Just when she thought she had gotten away with it, her “daughter turned the corner and screamed ‘YUCK, mom, just peed on the porch’.”
Isn’t it tough enough that moms carry a baby for 9 months, give birth, and manage the day to day ups and downs of having children? Why should something like incontinence disrupt this balancing act?
The answer- incontinence doesn’t have stop you from doing your normal activities.
As Jenn voices, “everyone says, ‘oh, just do Kegel exercises’, but if you don’t do them correctly, like any exercise, it’s a waste of time and when you do figure out how to do them correctly you have to remember it takes time to build those muscles back up enough to stop bladder leakage”.
Which is why she’s “excited to share a new device called Finess, that helps you say goodbye to those totally unsexy pads and diapers forever!”. Finally, a way to stop bladder leaks, but not you!
What is Finess?
Finess is a revolutionary product that allows you to enjoy the day without stressing about stress urinary incontinence. It works by blocking leaks before they happen! Jenn says, “it’s super-duper lightweight, comfortable, and totally discreet so you can enjoy all the activates you normally would.”
Finess is the first and most clinically tested solution for bladder leakage that has been cleared by the FDA for non-prescription use. To use Finess just place it over the urethral opening, and the specially formulated hydrogel adhesive gently seals it into place until you remove and replace it at your next bathroom visit. The next time you laugh, lift, or sneeze, Finess will block the urine from leaking. With Finess, you can prevent leaks. There is no fuid to absorb, which means no pad or diaper!
