Back when I was in my 40’s, I had a bad problem with incontinence. It was one of those problems that I couldn’t hide, because when I sneezed, or coughed, or laughed, I peed on myself. Or the floor. Or the chair I happened to be sitting in. And because I laughed a lot, I went around with wet pants a lot. It was ridiculous. I had to take a change of clothes with me everywhere I went. It was just one of those things I did: I kept a change of clothes in the car. And, honey, I can not tell you how many times I had to leave a cart full of items in a store and just go home, because I sneezed and peed on my feet. And I mean a lot, not just a dribble. It was more like a puddle. In 1996, I had surgery to repair the things “down there” that caused me to have the problem. The surgery worked just fine, but hat was twenty years ago.
Slowly, though, the problem has returned. It is not quite as bad as it was back then, but it IS there. But, thanks to a new product from Lady Patch, I can make it stop. Lady Patch sent me some of their clitoral patches to try so that I could tell y’all about them. All of us who have the problem of urinary incontinence should thank them for that.
Do you sprinkle when you sneeze? Leak when you laugh? Has jogging been known to cause a little ‘dribblelage’? If you’re one of the many women who are exhausted from waking up five times a night to use the restroom, like I do, or tired of shopping trips planned around the bathroom, you may be familiar with this subject. It’s a topic that has been long since categorized as taboo, but now it’s time to face the facts with some #realtalk. Whether you’ve had a child or are approaching (or finishing!) menopause, urinary issues are commonplace, and let’s be honest, the struggle is real! I have never understood why, when so many of us have this problem, it hasn’t been talked about much. I know I felt so much more embarrassment by my incontinence, because I felt like I was the only one who had that problem. When I finally asked around, I discovered that many of my close friends, and female family members, also wet their pants on a daily basis. So, why did I not know?
So what is Lady Patch, and how does it work? Well, I was sort of skeptical. How could a little thing that looks like a sticker help me keep from peeing my pants? The Lady Patch is a drug free, feminine patch that you easily apply to your clitoris, enhancing pelvic tone and giving you more control over your bladder and leaking. It lets you urinate when you really need to, not just feel like you need to. It is relatively small, compared to a feminine napkin or a tampon.
Once the Lady Patch is applied to your clitoris, it stimulates the nerves throughout your pelvic region causing the bladder to relax while strengthening pelvic muscles at the same time. It works like a kegel to enhance the muscle tone of your pelvis. This provides more bladder control which means less leaking and fewer urges to go. The Lady Patch is as easy to use as 1-2-3:
The Lady Patch stays on until you take it off. It has a long lasting sticky side that will keep it in place until you are ready for it to come off. When I put the one patch on my finger to show you the relative size of it, Rosie The Boy Cat wanted it really bad! He tried hard, but he just couldn’t get it to come off. And, his shenanigans made me laugh some more. Thanks, Lady Patch, again, for such a good, and unique, product.
