Many women experience LBL (1 in 3! ), myself included—especially during pregnancy and are clueless when it comes to selecting the perfect pad and some including myself once again, have/had no idea that there are pads specifically designed for LBL and offer so much more than your average run of the mill period pad! So recycle/upcycle those period pads into something that is actually helpful and check out Poise!
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)

After being pregnant multiples of times, I experience LBL but up until recently I have misguidedly thought that period pads were all that was offered in the way of protection. I was introduced to the NEW Thin Shaped Pads from Poise developed specifically for LBL-Light Bladder Leakage, Hooray! They offer much more protection, comfort and odor control and are so much freer and comfortable than thick period pads…but what to do with my surplus of pads that I had stocked up on ? I am a big believer in creating very little waste and that almost everything can be recylced/upcycled and set out to do just that with my pads…what could I do with them that was beneficial to me and that I would get the most use from?? After much thought, it hit me! I do my nails super often and am always using cotton rounds to remove my polish, but in a pinch had uses a pad…so why not cup my pads into strips and use them instead! Nothing more to purchase and I will have plenty of strips to last me quite some time! Each pad makes a large amount of strips and each strip does all of my fingers and toes! What a fantastic idea and great way to recycle something I no longer have a need for!
Simply cut your pads into strips, or whatever shape you desire and whatever length you desire and use them in place of cotton balls or rounds to remove your nail polish! It’s super simple and works marvelously! I am so glad that I found Poise for my LBL needs and decided to recycle my period pad…And you can too! #RecycleYourPeriodPad
