Cough, Stretch, Sneeze: I Just Peed A Little Bit

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Poise for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I hear the phrase "I just peed a little bit", I think of uproarious laughter at a funny story, a TV show or a movie; or at least I used to. After my pregnancy with my son over 16 years ago I felt like bladder leakage was natural for a short period of time afterwards. It went away by itself.

What if it doesn't go away or if it occurs later in life, like NOW? I'm 36. With all my joint pain, and now my bladder leakage when I cough or sneeze, I sometimes struggle with calling myself ONLY 36 versus 36, leaving the ONLY part old because I feel like my body just acts OLD. The truth of the matter is, bladder leakage, especially Stress Urinary Incontinence, doesn't discriminate by age.

To be honest, when I was first approached to share my story with the ENTIRE world (all 5,000 or so of you that read my blog), I thought "that's not something I want to talk about". Sadly, part of the problem with bladder leakage, no matter what form, is that no one wants to talk about it and too many people think there's nothing that can be done about it or they're too embarrassed.


With Stress Urinary Incontinence, kegel exercises are often a go-to solution for women, but to be honest, who does this? I don't even walk enough during the day with my sedentary day job. My whole body is a bigger priority, at least until I face that dreadful moment when I'm in a compromised situation, like a staff meeting or a holiday party and BAM: cough, stretch, sneeze or the rare moments you actually laugh during a staff meeting and you experience light bladder leakage (also known as LBL).

I'm tired of worrying about LBL interfering with LOL, among other things, but honestly I never thought to explore liners or the bulkier options. Shopping for urinary incontinence products at age 36 is far more embarrassing than sending the man in your life to pick up the other feminine hygiene products. They have no idea.

When I heard about Poise Impressa Bladder Supports, a discreet alternative to liners, pads and urinary incontinence diapers...well, first of all my light bladder leakage caused by coughing, laughing, sneezing, stretching, etc. was amplified. It's kind of like when you get a new car and you suddenly start to see dozens of other same cars on the road. All of a sudden I was experiencing stress urinary incontinence ten times more than usual.

I saw a Poise Impressa coupon and figured the best case scenario is that there is a solution to my light bladder leakage caused by simple things, with a product that looks like a tampon. I've been buying those for 20+ years. I'm good with that.

I don't even have a problem asking Travis to buy products that look like a tampon for me. Asking Travis to buy a liner, pad or (GASP) urinary incontinence diaper (call them what you will, they're diapers) is just not happening. There's already a 9 year age difference; me being his senior. There's NO WAY I'm asking him to do that, even if he'd be ready and willing to do it. Uh-uh. Not happening.

Poise Impressa Bladder Supports work by positioning themselves just right to prevent bladder leakage. They don't actually absorb like a tampon. That's why the sizing kit is the first step.

 The Poise Impressa Bladder Supports are the FIRST and ONLY over-the-counter internal product designed to help stop leaks before they happen. After you purchase the sizing kit and find your size, you can find protection from light bladder leakage for up to 8 hours per day. That's a normal work day and that's when it's most important to me. When I'm at home, I can quickly take care of things if I sneeze-pee; not so much at work.

If you experience light bladder leakage from Stress Urinary Incontinence you should check out Poise Impressa. It's not for everyone, but it could be for you.

  1. So...this morning I was cleaning out my fridge (which I thought I had been good about this year) and I found a container of chicken from before Christmas. Of course I had to dump it in the trash and then run it under hot water, but when that hot water hit the container it wafted up a stench that had me gagging!!! I hurried with the trash bag outside to the toter, gagging the whole way. Anyways, I just told you all that to say that during my gagging--I peed a little. These would have definitely come in handy!!! I think they are going on my shopping list as well.

  2. I really love the idea behind this product. It helps save that tinkle that likes to pop out with my coughing!

  3. Thank goodness for Poise... saving Moms from pee sneezing across America!
