Disclosure: Many thanks to Poise for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging me to try Poise, not period pads, for LBL!
Well peeps, it’s time to get personal! And, while this may seem like TMI for you, here’s what I like to say…it’s life, man! Life can get a little embarrassing with LBL (Light Bladder Leakage) and when you don’t have good coverage for those leaks, talk about a horrifying experience. I first discovered LBL after I had children and started to workout at the gym again. Running longer distances. Jumping rope. Yeah, it isn’t exactly cool when you feel like you have to pee in the middle of a fitness session.
That’s where Poise comes into play…in a good way. Poise pads aren’t period pads. They are pads to help with LBL. So that’s why I am not throwing away the period pads in my bathroom closet, but recycling them into something wearable.

And that’s just what I did with my period pads. I walk around all day for my job and want to look cute, but also be comfortable. Unfortunately wearing heels can come with consequences even if you are a skilled heel-wearing professional.
Before I share with you what I did with my old period pads, here is a little information for you about LBL.
WHAT IS LBL?
• One in three women experience Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) – little leaks that can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise.
o Weak pelvic floor muscles, pregnancy, childbirth and weight gain are just a few LBL contributors.
WHAT CAUSES LBL?
Just as no two women are alike, there’s no single reason that LBL happens. Some of the most common things that lead to uninvited leaks include:
• Physical changes from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause
• Being overweight
• Complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson’s disease
• Bladder or urinary tract infections
• Bladder irritants (certain foods and beverages)
