As a woman who gave birth to two, 9 plus pound babies, it’s not a big surprise that I have experienced some bladder leakage for much of my adult life. Add to that the fact I am no longer in my 30’s or even 40’s and my muscle tone is not what it used to be…and that equals even more bladder leaks.
From new moms to grandmothers urinary incontinence doesn’t discriminate – it can strike no matter how old you are. This can be stressful and debilitating. uresta® can help!
I worked for years as a Registered Nurse in the Gynaecology department of our regional Operating Room, so, I know for a fact that I am not alone in this. But still, having to wear incontinence pads daily is both an inconvenience and frankly, can be embarrassing.
I carried a purse full of pads everywhere and constantly worried about things like odours, will the pad be absorbent enough, and will there be somewhere, if needed, to change the pad.
Surgery was an option, but I felt that it was a last resort and something I didn’t want to pursue just yet. So, I basically resigned myself to the fact that living with a “purse full of pads” was the way my life was going to be.
But now, all that has changed!
I was recently introduced to and have started using an innovative product called uresta® …and to say it has literally changed my life would be an understatement!
The best part, uresta® is not a pad, it’s actually a reusable bladder support that’s as simple and easy to use as a tampon!
Do you also have some Urinary Incontinence?
It’s a common occurrence: as many as one in two women will experience some form of urinary leaking in their lifetime, particularly at age 45 and older. And half of those women experience Stress Urinary Incontinence (sometimes referred to as Light Bladder Leakage).
What I really love about the uresta® bladder support, is the fact that it stops leaks rather than absorbing them! Because, let’s face it, most disposables hold urine (and the odour!). I also love that it was designed by a urogynecologist to work with your body and is manufactured to high standards right here in Canada.
Using uresta® is a lot like using a tampon – once inserted, the bell shape works with your body, supporting the urethra to help significantly reduce or stop bladder leaks. It’s easy to use – the narrow tip and handle make it easy to insert and remove and it’s easy to clean.
Comfortable for everyday and simple in every way –
The uresta® bladder support is comfortable for daily use. You can manage it yourself – it’s simple to fit and easy to clean. And uresta® is designed to be discreet – it’s convenient to use and carry and it makes travelling much easier.
Reusable is a good thing –
Reusable is good for your pocketbook too – over a 12-month period, uresta® provides better value than disposables. It is also better for the environment – you might use hundreds of pads or other disposable solutions over the span of a year, all of which end up in landfill.
Getting Started is Simple –
The first time you use uresta®, you will need to use the Starter Kit to find the right size for you. The uresta® bladder support Starter Kit includes the three most common sizes (remember size doesn’t necessarily correlate to the size of your vagina). If you need a size larger or a size smaller, you can contact the company and they will send it to you at no charge. Also, if you are not 100% satisfied with the results from your uresta® Starter Kit, they will give you your money back.
So, go ahead. Do some yoga. Go for a run. Laugh (or sneeze or cough) without fear.
uresta® gives you back your life and helps significantly reduce or stop bladder leaks so you can start living again!
