Tips and Tricks
GP, campaign ambassador, Dr Sarah Jarvis
“Simple lifestyle changes can help you regain control over sensitive bladder. Here are my top tips:”
It’s good to talk: It may sound clichéd but it really is good to talk – you’ll be surprised how many women you know will say “me too! So try talking to a close friend or female family member. It’s also important to seek professional help so visit your GP.
Keep moving: Swap high impact exercise like running with low impact spots such as cycling, or Nordic walking. And forgot abdominal crunches, strength your core with practices like yoga or Pilates
Keep Hydrated: There’s no need to avoid drinking in order to reduce the urge to visit the loo and in fact lead to bladder infections, Drinking water also helps to reduce odours, add a splash of cranberry juice which benefits urinary health as well…so drink up!
Do your pelvic floor exercises: A strong pelvic floor can dramatically reduce leaks and improve overall health. By practising at least three times a day, you can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which controls the hold and release of urine. Go to awaydiscreet.co.uk for tips on how to do your daily pelvic floor exercises.
Use specialist products: A common mistake is to use sanitary pads or panty liners, rather than products specifically designed to cope with urine loss, such as Always Discreet for Sensitive bladder.
You are not alone: Remember, adult incontinence is something millions of women experience so if you are experience the first signs, you don’t need to suffer in silence.
