The ‘Little Problem Women Don’t Have’!

It has been recently bought to my attention that more women suffer from bladder weakness than hay fever! Who would have thought? Not me that’s for sure but then again it isn’t something that women often go around discussing. I know that I have always thought of it as an older or more senior women’s problem; though this is not the case at all. Did you know that 18% of Australian women aged 25-29 and 40% of women aged 30-34 have experienced bladder leakage? It’s a lot more common than I thought.


There are many causes of bladder weakness including pregnancy, childbirth, weight issues, irritations, exercise and even some genetic or medical conditions. Women are so busy these days that they tend to overlook or ignore light bladder leakages and pretend that it doesn’t happen but they don’t have to live in denial. There is a solution and women can take control! In the meantime the new lights by TENA range of liners take care of the situation whilst being discreet, thin and reliable.


Besides admitting you suffer from light bladder weakness; strengthening your pelvic floor is the first step to rectifying this issue. And I, in conjunction with TENA and physiotherapist expert Jane Le Fevre plan on educating and empowering women with the knowledge it’s not something they have to just accept and help teach them how they can start strengthening their pelvic floors.


Help me to shed light on bladder weakness for women of all ages and stages of life. If there are any questions you would like to ask expert Jane Le Fevre in relation to personal issues, concerns or advice on LBL please email me at kell@allmumsaid.com.au with your questions. I promise I will keep all questions/comments anonymous.

    Thank you for posting about such an important issue. Women need to understand how common bladder weakness is and know that they don’t have to live with it for the rest of their lives. A brilliant initiative – hopefully we can stamp out some of the stigma.
