I am Veronica, 38. I am a mother of two and I recently started suffering from bladder weakness. With bladder weakness when I cough, sneeze or laugh I usually lose some drops of urine. People always think that bladder weakness only happens to old people so being young and healthy; it had never crossed my mind that it could happen to me. At first the problem was limiting my daily routine. I stopped doing sports and felt uncomfortable when doing any outdoor activity. When going shopping or travelling I always had to make sure that there was a toilet nearby. I began to worry that my partner wouldn’t understand so tried to hide my incontinence. I started avoiding having sex and tended to isolate myself. One day I decided I had to face up to the problem and confide in my doctor. Talking to her about my bladder weakness was such a relief. It really helped me to understand my options and to see that I could enjoy life again. The doctor referred me to the Continence Service for further support and information but suggested I also look on the internet; it was then that I found ID direct. At first I only really looked at the information about incontinence but when I was prescribed products from the Continence Service I decided to try the iD products too.I now purchase ID Light Normal regularly as they are a small discreet and anatomically fitting pad. They are normal feminine care products, but they are especially designed for urine leakage. They are soft and discreet so that when I wear them I feel confident that no-one notices anything. I am now using the products I am prescribed by the continence service and the ID products I buy myself. I am trying some pelvic floor exercises that were suggested to me and I am finding all are really helping me to regain control over my bladder and I feel more relaxed and confident!
I am a Woman.
