I am female, and when I laugh and haven't been to the toilet, i can't keep it in and i often wet myself. This is embarrassing, how can i prevent this, and what product do you recommend ? I am very embarrassed.
Our expert answered:
There is no need to be embarrassed at all as this is a very common problem with up to 37% of women experiencing light bladder leakage or LBL.
For just a little bit of urine loss when you laugh, the product most suitable for you sounds like the Poise liners range. They are very thin and discreet, just like period only liners but three times more absorbent so you will stay dry and will not need to worry.
To help prevent this for happenning and to improve your LBL, pelvic floor exercises will be most helpful. You can explore the Poise website which has plenty of tips for how to do pelvic floor exercises.
