Now, is truly the time to stop the myths, rumors and overall stigma, blame, and misinformation surrounding bladder leakage. Unfortunately bladder leakage is an equal opportunity nuisance. It affects men and women of all ages.
Shortly after giving birth to my first son many years ago I noticed some slight bladder leakage. It wasn’t much but like so many things after each birth of my other children the leakage became worse. So much that, I spoke with my Doctor about it. He explained I wasn’t the only woman to experience this condition after child birth, but that I should do some exercises and invest in bladder leakage protection undergarments. In fact, bladder leakage affects millions of people. Whaaaaat? Was my reply, I was only thirty years old at the time. I wasn’t an old lady…
**Spoiler Alert** Just like my blog post title says: “More people in their 20’s experience bladder leakage than people in their 80’s” So, people it is time for us to wake up as a generation and realize that you can be affected by bladder leakage at any age. It’s not an old folks problem.
