Over 30% of women suffer from embarrassing urine leaks when they cough, sneeze or laugh. Many are spending much more money than they can afford on incontinence pads to manage their problem, which is known as ‘stress incontinence’.
“I was finding the number of pads I needed to buy was eating into my weekly budget,” says Anne, from the Gold Coast. “I decided there had to be a better way of dealing with my problem, especially as money has been tight recently.”
Anne is absolutely right.
A recent study from Brazil confirms what worldwide research has been telling us for some years. Women who suffer from stress incontinence can greatly improve their condition, and even beat it altogether, by exercising their pelvic floor muscles, using vaginal cones or electrical stimulation devices. The study found that all of these methods were highly effective in reducing stress incontinence.
“Stress incontinence is the single most common problem that our customers describe,” says Linda McClelland from Pelvic Floor Exercise, Australia’s one-stop specialist supplier of pelvic floor exercise aids. “But thankfully it is relatively easy to beat. Most women can overcome their incontinence by strengthening their pelvic floor muscles, and these days there are many low-cost devices that can help.”
Simple electrical stimulation devices for home use and worldwide bestseller vaginal weights are both available from Pelvic Floor Exercise, along with feedback devices that help women to improve their exercise technique. Books, DVDs and CDs are also all popular with women who want to put their incontinence problem behind them.
"Best of all, many of these products are cheap, relative to what many women are already spending on their incontinence problem " says Linda. "Vaginal weights can be bought for what Anne was spending on incontinence pads every six weeks. Once she's cured her problem, that frees up a useful number of dollars every week to spend on something much more exciting than pads!"
