Fearless at 40 with Poise Impressa

This past year, I celebrated my 40th birthday milestone and reaching this milestone has brought me to a new chapter in adulthood: mid-life, and the age-related issues that come with reaching this milestone.

Having been diagnosed with a bladder-related condition when I was 5 years old, urinary tract health is something I have been concerned with literally most of my life. With this age 40 milestone comes the reality is that age can bring on stress urinary incontinence issues. The worry that comes with thinking about these sudden and unexpected leaking accidents happening during activities such as exercise, heavy lifting, sneezing, coughing, or even laughing.  

Before, the two most common options for women with bladder leaks were absorbing leaks with bulky pads/liners or resorting to invasive surgery. This has been the reality for my grandmother's generation, for my mother's generation. Now, Poise Impressa has a product that helps me to be fearless at 40.  There it was on the shelf and there was the end to my worries about SUI accidents ruining precious family time moments.  I came home with a sizing kit that allowed me to find just the right fit for my body.

Poise Impressa Bladder Supports adapt to the unique internal shape of each woman’s body, and that is one of the things I like most about this product. 

One of the activities I most enjoy this time of year is outdoor fitness activities with my husband, especially our daily walks together, but one of the activities where SUI accidents most happen to me is exercise activities. Our annual beach vacation ritual is a long afternoon stroll on the beach. Poise Impressa helps me be worry-free about having to cut short our quality time due to a stress urinary incontinence emergency and helps us to have our treasured time together.

Designed for the temporary management of Stress Urinary Incontinence, Poise* Impressa*Bladder Supports do not absorb leaks — they help prevent them.

Stopping leaks starts with the Impressa Sizing Kit. Impressa comes in three different sizes, and the Sizing Kit helps you find your most effective and comfortable internal fit. Each kit includes six bladder supports (two of each size), along with a $4 coupon toward a 10-count Single-Size Pack of Impressa.

After you've found your perfect fit with the Impressa Sizing Kit, it's time to purchase a Single-Size Pack. Each includes 10 bladder supports in your size — and you can use Impressa for up to 8 hours every day to help stop leaks before they happen.

You can find a Poise Impressa $2.00 off Coupon here, which I think is a great way to help you #TryImpressa.

  4. At 65 I do experience this on occasion--really have to try this out. I am a little surprised it took them this long to figure this out--but glad they finally did.

  5. This is such a common problem, it's good to know that your not on your own with this type of problem. Will have to find out more.

  6. So glad there's finally another option!

  7. I asked my doctor about leaking when laughing hard years ago and he said most women did. It's great to see products for this and conversation taking place.

  8. This is something that has plagued me for a long time. I'm happy to see a product like Impressa to make it easier to enjoy life!
