Little Leaks Aren’t Just for Faucets

Sep 24th, 2018 In: General

I have two young boys which is evidence that I know a lot about pee. They pee everywhere. What I didn’t know is that I would have peeing issues. It happens when I laugh-I pee, I dance- I pee or do yoga- I pee. It’s no fun.

I exercise and do sit-ups but no matter how many kugels I do, it just doesn’t stop me from leaking. I found out that I could have a type of urinary incontinence known as stress incontinence. This is a common complaint among pregnant women, and some find that it continues to bother them after giving birth. It’s caused from all that pressure on your bladder, plus pregnancy hormones that throw your urinary muscles out of whack.

I have a close friend who is a partner at a law firm. She is constantly making presentations to clients. She told me “I had a special bag in my van for my ‘supplies’ with a change of clothes and extra pads, just in case,” Becky said. “I got so nervous in company meetings, because I was afraid people could smell me.”

Until recently, there weren’t any nonsurgical, effective treatments for urinary incontinence. So, woman got used to minimizing the problem. I needed to get to the root of the problem, not just mask it with pads to manage the symptoms. Pads are better than nothing, but let’s be honest, you can’t really stay poised wearing pads. I never thought I had any options except to have a “bladder tuck” like some older woman do. I heard a friend talking about how she had just had this procedure done called Viveve and how great she feels and her peeing issues have gone away. She is back to her exercise routine and even can jump on trampoline with her girls without any problems.

There is a way to feel liberated with a simple 45 minute procedure called Viveve. It’a vaginal rejuvenation treatment that is helping woman like me everywhere overcome urinary incontinence and feel in control again. Viveve is a comfortable non-surgical procedure that only requires 1 session to deliver significance results and last for up to a year. Viveve gives woman everywhere their control back.
