Let’s talk bladder leakage for a moment, shall we? It’s something that 35-million women deal every time they cough, sneeze or laugh too hard, yet we all seem shy about discussing it. I’ll tell you a secret: I’m worried about it. I had a hysterectomy last year, which puts me at a much higher risk of developing stress urinary incontinence. It happened to women in my family after they had hysterectomies, after all.
Of course, SUI doesn’t just happen to women after having a hysterectomy. It can happen to women at any age and for just about any reason. Sometimes it happens for no reason at all. If it does happen, I’m relieved to know about Poise Impressa Bladder Supports. They’re the first OTC internal product that’s actually designed to stop bladder leaks before they happen.
What Are Poise Impressa Bladder Supports?
Poise Impressa Bladder Supports are a revolutionary new product that discreetly prevents leaks for up to 8 hours, allowing you to go about your life feeling more confident. Laugh more, exercise more, just be you without worrying about leaks.
It looks very much like a tampon. If you’ve ever used tampons, you’ll know how to use Poise Impressa Bladder Supports. They’re NOT tampons, though. Rather, they’re gentle supports that lift the urethra to stop leaks before they occur. Unlike tampons, Poise Impressa Bladder Supports come in three different sizes (rather than absorbencies) that adapt to your own unique internal shape. Since we aren’t all one size on the outside, it stands to reason that we’re not all one size on the inside. Poise Impressa offers a sizing kit to help you determine the right fit. Let’s talk about one of my family members with SUI (who we’ll call Lois, because she doesn’t want to be identified). Lois doesn’t define herself as “a woman with stress urinary incontinence.” She’s a mom, grandmother, sister, aunt, writer, adventurer who also happens to experience bladder leakage. She doesn’t want to worry about when those leaks will happen.
Lois is just like 4 in 5 (81%) women who want the freedom to live their life without worry about their next leaks and feel a life without leaks would be priceless (data according to the Poise Impressa Bladder Leakage survey, conducted online by Harris Poll). The Poise Impressa Bladder Supports let her live her life without worrying.

It’s important to note that Poise Impressa Bladder Supports can’t be used within the first three months after you have vaginal surgery. If you did have surgery, talk to your doctor first to get cleared. You can’t use them during pregnancy, may become pregnant or for three months after delivery either. They’re not for use in women under age 21. If you experience vaginal dryness, bleeding or other issues, you shouldn’t use them.
One more thing: I know we say it a lot, but talk to your doctor if you have any new symptoms that weren’t there before. In most cases, light bladder leakage isn’t a serious medical concern. Still, if it just pops up one day with no warning- especially if you experience any sort of pain, dizziness, fever or any other symptoms- it could be the sign of a bladder infection, so just get it checked out, please?
If your doctor does diagnose you with SUI, you’ll feel confident knowing that Poise Impressa Bladder Supports are there to let you keep on living your life without worries!
