You thought you were done buying pads and pantyliners once you hit menopause. Except now you find yourself grabbing a package of Depends or Poise because you leak urine every time you sneeze, cough, or as you rush to the toilet. Whether you birthed your children years ago or are going through this crazy hormonal shift, you think this is just the norm. I want you to know although it may be considered the norm, it is NOT NORMAL!! You should not be fearful of leaking, you should not feel like you need to use the restroom ‘just in case’ to avoid an accident, you should not have to cross your legs as tight as you can every time you need to sneeze. You should know there is HOPE. You should know you can feel the freedom of going out without wearing a pad. You should know you have the ability to regain control of your life. Granted there are instances where surgical intervention may be best (i.e. in the example of a severe pelvic organ prolapse); however conservative treatment through physical therapy can be extremely beneficial and safe. If you have the opportunity to free yourself from the burden of unwanted leakage through simple exercises, why not take it? I would love to meet you and help you find that freedom.
