Why are we Always Discreet about discussing Bladder Sensitivity?

I must admit as I am writing this post I need a wee. TMI? Perhaps not. The point I am making is that so many of us put off going to the toilet when our body tells us it needs to go. This is one of many causes of bladder weakness but something many of us ignore the signs of and don't feel comfortable discussing with friends, family and even our own GP.
With bladder sensitivity affecting 1 in 3 women in the UK why is this subject still confined to whispered discussions or in most cases avoided completely.
Always Discreet revealed some interesting statistics in a recent clinical study that really should encourage women to open up about this taboo health issue. AI (Adult Incontinence) can also lead to a whole host of other physical and psychological issues including sleep loss and anxiety
Of the estimated 12 Million women in the UK that suffer from AI sadly 51% of them have struggled with depression and two thirds feel embarrassed. Then why don't we as women support each other and encourage each other to open up about this condition?
If you are experiencing any of the below symptoms please don't put off getting a check up, book a visit with the GP for some advice and rest assured that you are not alone!
  • Going to the toilet more than 10 times a day
  • Experiencing little leaks when you laugh, cough, sneeze or exercise
  • Experiencing little leaks and/or reduced sensitivity, or feeling, during sex
  • Frequently having to go to the toilet during the night

    New Always Discreet for Sensitive Bladders has been developed following nine years of research and product testing by thousands of women. This new range includes liners and pads that are thinner (up to 40 per cent*) than the leading brand, while absorbing two times more than women may need.
    "Always gives women the confidence they deserve."
