When you get pregnant, no one tells you about all of the things your body will go through. I think the theory is that most people find so much joy in the birth of their children that they forget about some of the crazy things your body will begin to do (or not do) that it never did before. But because no one talks about it, you feel like you are the only one it is happening too.
I’m going to experience what?
Did you know that 1 in 4 Americans experience bladder leakage? And it’s not just women, men can experience it too. That 1 in 4 is equivalent to 65 million Americans and of those 65 million, 12 million are under the age of 35 and 23 million are under age 45. Yup, bladder leakage is not just for older folks. Anyone can experience it and it’s nothing to be ashamed of!
In order to bring this common issue out of hiding, Depend has created a brand new social movement that is also a charitable cause. They call it Underwareness and the goal is to show those who experience bladder leakage that they are not alone.
Bladder leakage – it’s way more common than you realize!
I am willing to bet if you ask most people to be totally honest, they will admit to at least one incident of bladder leakage in their lives. From a sneeze, laughter, jumping jacks, or some other activity that puts a little bit too much pressure down there.
I can admit that is has happened to me once or twice, though I don’t suffer from it regularly, I definitely never realized that it was such a common thing. I asked some friends and they too have said they experience it when laughing or sneezing, and one even said she can’t even do jumping jacks anymore because that’s when it happens for her.
Underwareness is bringing bladder leakage out in the open to eliminate the stigma that comes with wearing a product like Depend. It’s time to get people talking about it – it’s no big deal to wear a different type of underwear and Depend is not a product just for nursing home residents. Depend is not a big bulky diaper as people always imagine and it’s not just for people with extreme bladder leakage. Depend is for anyone who might need some extra protection that is discreet and will fit into any lifestyle.
