I was surprised by some of the results of my recent survey aimed towards 40+ women and their pelvic situations. A staggering 64% of them admitted to accidentally leak urine when exercising, playing sport, laughing, coughing or sneezing? And of these women, none of them had seeked any treatment to help them recover from this embarrassing situation.
Many women, when questioned, said things like ‘it’s my age”, “I‘ve always had this problem”, ‘It’s to be expected now I’m old’.
Let’s make one thing clear now.
Leaking urine in any circumstances, can be COMMON for women over 40, but it is totally and utterly AVOIDABLE.
I think it’s really sad that the adverts on the telly for pads have made it acceptable and ‘normal’. I hated wearing Tena ladies, they felt awful, were NOT sexy and NOT comfy. I am glad I took action with my body and now never have to wear them again.
I know this sounds silly but my passion is the 40+ woman’s pelvic health!! I know I can help you to help yourself to understand the issues, the risks the anatomy and a whole lot more stuff which will help you never to wear those bloody awful pads.
I have a 4 week course in Derby, starting in February, why not come along, take action and control of your pelvic health. Yes I get it, it can be embarrassing talking about your lady parts, but you don’t have to, I will just talk and you can just listen! (I love to talk, so that’s easy for me!). We will be doing Pilates style exercises along side our course to help you to strengthen and understand your core.
