After giving birth, I must confess that some things are happening with my body that I have very little to no control of. Among other things, it seemed like my bladder could not always do its part of holding up urine a little longer than it used to. I am talking about urinary incontinence. I thought incontinence can only be experienced by the elderly or those that are already past their retirement age but I was wrong. I didn't even think that a laughter can trigger a flow from my bladder. This actually bothered me for awhile but after a few reads on the Internet which led me to http://www.parentgiving.com/shop/ and after a word from a doctor (especially), I was somehow appeased.
To be honest, my urinary incontinence experience came to a point that I had to rely on these diapers and nappies for adults for awhile but after following a few exercises (Kegel exercises) that can help strengthen the muscles in my pelvic area, I was able to manage it well. Of course, it was not like I have totally dealt with it or gotten rid of it completely because there are still times (although not very often) that I would get a surprise flow when I find something too amusing and can't control my laughter. That's when these diapers or nappies can come in really handy. I realized I might as well wear one especially when I know I would be engaged in a fun conversation with friends during parties or when I would go on a long travel. How about you? How are you holding up? :-)
By the way, I also find these disposable ones helpful especially
during heavier days of my period. There is this feeling of security on
my part when I use them during Day 2 of my period instead of my
regular pads. Ooopps, that was supposed to be a secret!:-)
