Light Bladder Leakage, aka LBL is a topic that I find rather embarrassing, but it is a problem that many women experience, so I am sure that I am not alone on this one. After having three kids, my pelvic floor muscles are just not the same and LBL is just one of those things I have come to accept. There are a number of reasons that a person could suffer from LBL. Let’s start with the basics.
WHAT IS LBL?
• One in three women experience Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) – little leaks that can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise.
• Weak pelvic floor muscles, pregnancy, childbirth and weight gain are just a few LBL contributors.
WHAT CAUSES LBL?
Just as no two women are alike, there’s no single reason that LBL happens. Some of the most common things that lead to uninvited leaks include:
• Physical changes from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause
• Being overweight
• Complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson’s disease
• Bladder or urinary tract infections
• Bladder irritants (certain foods and beverages)

I love free samples. You can request Free Poise Pad Samples so that you can try them out for yourself.
Now, if you were using regular pads to deal with this problem, you won’t need to anymore thanks to Poise. Since you may not be needing those regular pads anymore, I have come up with a practical way to recycle them. Use them in your houseplants! This is a very simple project. All you will need is a pad, a pot, some garden soil and a plant.

Take your unused pad and soak it in a container of water for about 20 minutes. Since it’s so absorbent, it will start to absorb the water. Drain the water, and then cut the edges of the pad. Inside will be a lot of gelatinous goo. Scrape that out into your container and throw away the pad. Then mix the goo with garden soil and stir.
