Your bladder is the hollow muscular organ that collects urine, and it can be quite frustrating when it doesn't function normally. One of the most common bladder problems is a sensitive bladder (or light adult incontinence), which is generally caused by weakened pelvic floor muscles or disorders in the nervous system regulating the bladder. As you get older, your pelvic floor muscles weaken. This can also be the case during pregnancy and after childbirth.
When you urinate, your pelvic floor muscles play an important role – this muscle group relaxes at the same time as the bladder contracts (or tightens) in order to let the urine out – so when they weaken, you have less control.
Even with a healthy bladder, a sneeze or laugh can sometimes be enough to trigger an involuntary loss of urine. But there's no need to suffer in silence because there are simple steps you can take to help prevent such bladder embarrassments. There are daily exercises that help strengthen your pelvic floor, and you can use pantyliners that have been especially developed for this kind of problem. You can try Always Leakguard Plus™ pads with Odor Lock and Always Dri-Liners, both of which have OdorLock™ technology that can help protect you from unwanted odors.
