I struggled with the title of this post. Combat is a harsh word. Lately, I feel like I am in a constant battle with my body. So combat it is. Part of my strategy included partnering with Finess to bring you my experience stopping bladder leakage caused by stress urinary incontinence (“SUI”). You know those annoying bladder leaks that happen when you cough, sneeze, laugh or try to do a jumping jack. The battle is real!
If you experience stress urinary incontinence you are not alone. It is estimated that one in four women over 40 experience SUI. I happen to be one of the lucky 25%. SUI most commonly occurs in women during and after menopause, as well as post-partum.
Combat Bladder Leaks
For many years I put myself at the bottom of the to-do list. Now my body is showing the consequences of that neglect. Having three children, an unhealthy diet and a sedentary lifestyle aren’t the best conditions for a woman’s body to endure. Treating my body with respect is a top priority. Eating better and moving more is what I strive for daily. Stress urinary incontinence used to slow me down. Now with Finess I can accomplish my goals without worry. Having the right tools in your arsenal is the key to winning the bladder leaks battle.
The Finess Softpatch is an entirely new and innovative approach that is FDA approved for the treatment of female SUI. You won’t have to use a bulky or smelly pad. I used to be so self-conscious while wearing exercise clothing worrying about the pad bulge being noticeable in my underwear.
Combat Bladder Leaks
You will need some practice getting to know your lady parts just a bit better. Finess is used externally over the urethral opening and the specially formulated hydrogel adhesive gently seals it in place until it’s removed.
Finess works by stopping urine from escaping and prevents bladder leaks before they happen. It’s been much easier to go about my day without bladder leaks or pads to worry about.
It only took me one try and I was able to apply the Finess Softpatch. I am very pleased with how the product works. Doing workouts, stretching and even laughing without bladder leaks is a huge relief. Take the Finess test to see if the product is right for you.
This video shows you more detail on using Finess and shows the application process.
Finess Softpatch is the first product of its kind and is made in the USA with same materials trusted in medical applications. The foam body is made from a material often used for medical products in contact with sensitive tissues. The principal component of the hydrogel adhesive is also used in other devices such as contact lenses and permanent medical implants.
Remember, we need to talk frankly about women’s issues like SUI. Ignoring our bodies won’t make problems go away. Lets keep the conversation going so more women can find ways to combat bladder leakage and continue their normal activities with ease. Share this post or infographic with all the women you know.
