Don’t be shy about it. It’s not a big deal. It really isn’t. In fact, one-third of American women deal with it. More than 51 million women. That’s pretty darn common. Odds are, if you don’t experience it, you know someone (or several someones) who do.
That’s because there are so many situations and conditions that can cause bladder leakage — diabetes, for instance, or pregnancy and childbirth, as well as certain medications and health conditions. It’s really no big deal.
Of course, when I first experienced it, I didn’t think that. I thought it was a really big deal, and I thought it was something I had to keep to myself because I was young (in my early 30s). Bladder leakage is something that happens when you’re old, right? Right??
More women in their 20s experience bladder leakage than women in their 80s. True!
So, it really shouldn’t have been a big deal when I experienced bladder leakage. Like that time I was jumping on our trampoline. It looked like fun — and it was exercise! After a few jumps, I realized, uh oh. I experienced bladder leakage.
Or when someone was telling me an insanely funny story and I laughed and laughed…and laughed some more. And then I realized, uh oh. I experienced bladder leakage.
No one was aware of what happened either time, but I thought it was a big deal. Even though I had four kids and a major back injury, along with nerve damage and medications that can affect your bladder, I felt like this was something that couldn’t (or shouldn’t) happen to me. But it was — it is — and it’s not a big deal. But how to deal with it?
