This is embarrassing…but recently I’ve noticed that during running I leak urine. Not large amounts, but enough to make we want to stop and find the nearest bathroom. Really am bored of using sanitary towels and hoping for the best. I’m only 41, is my bladder screwed already?? thanks
Have you been through childbirth or something that could severely weaken the muscles?
You need a physical exam from a Doctor to look for abnormalities and evidence of damage or weakening of the muscles. I would also recommend getting a test for infection to be on the safe side.
Do not use sanitary towels for this…they do not provide you with the same protection as incontinence pads. The TENA Comfort Mini Extra is available online, and is a popular shaped pad for managing stress incontinence. It is anatomically shaped, meaning it maintains discretion. I’d recommend trying this out and seeing if it is ideal for you.
