Bladder Leakage: Know the Depend #Underwareness Solution

Have you heard about Depend and how it has helped people who have little or no control of their bladder? I used to shun away when it was the topic of discussion. However, I have a confession to make due to changes in my body.

I was in a mall walking and doing some window shopping. You probably know how it is when women shop, even if it’s just browsing.  Restrooms are not easy to find in shopping malls, but  that is not unusual. I used to be able to walk around for hours and hours and I would not have to go to the restroom even if I had a drink with me. However, recently I have had the urge to go often and I have tried to control it as much as I can just to find myself wetting my underwear! It was not obvious at first, though, since I did’t notice until I sat down, but then I had to hurry home right away!  And another thing, after that happened, I was just cleaning, moving some stuff around the house and I felt some bladder leakage again.  After these recent incidents I felt alarmed and since I am only in my mid-30s it was surprising to me to experience bladder leakage.   I thought there must be a solution to make this problem not affect my daily lifestyle.

So, I did my research. I found out that bladder leakage affects people of all ages. That was a little comforting since that categorizes me as normal, somehow. I found out 1 in 3 women experience it. That is over 51 million women in the U.S., so I am not alone. Most are not just comfortable talking about it. If no one wants to talk about it, how can we find solutions? We ought to share tips for bladder leakage with as many people as we can!


Good thing there is the Underwareness movement that shows the world that it is all right to wear a different kind of underwear for incontinence protection to save face from shame. There is at least one that will fit men and another for women and in colors that matches any wardrobe. You can try the Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs which gives moderate absorbency. It features a thin design for complete comfort and protection that you can trust.
