Triggers of Little Leaks

Certain situations like laughing, lifting and sneezing are more likely to trigger little leaks. They can be quite a shock at first, but they shouldn’t affect your lifestyle. With the right management they don’t have to be a big deal at all.

Triggers of Little Leaks

Pre and post Menstruation 
Your menstruation cycle is a 28 day cycle. It’s relatively easy to find information around ‘period specific’ symptoms, such as cramps or spotting. Our sister site, LoveLibra is full of useful facts. However, much less discussed is how your cycle affects your bladder, which is does! Just after you ovulate there’s an increase in muscle relaxing hormones released into your body, which makes it much harder to hold on to your pelvic floor.

So you might find around a week before your period you experience those ‘oops moments’. But they don’t have to limit you. Simply use one of our Lights By TENA liners during these times, and you can get on with your day!

It can be a Laughing Matter 
How good are those times when you laugh so hard your belly aches? Laughing should be a great time, but it can also cause little leaks. As can similar activities like coughing and sneezing. The contractions of the stomach put pressure on the pelvic floor muscles which can trigger leakage. However, by using a Lights By TENA liner, you can make sure there’s no downside to a good laugh!

As if working out wasn't enough 
Working out is one of those typical occasions where you can experience light bladder leakage. Running, jumping or heavy lifting all put additional pressure on your sensitive bladder. Or, it can happen at the end of your workout, when your muscles are tired. Lucky, Lights By TENA are super light and discreet so you can wear them under your active wear and get on with your workout.
