Discreet Solutions for Bladder Leakage

More than 40 percent of women over the age of 40 experience a sensitive bladder.

Family medicine physician Dr. Rachael Ross explains that bladder leaks happen when the pelvic floor muscles become weak. Triggers can include weight gain, pregnancy and menopause.

Dr. Rachael and Barbara Hannah Gruffermann, author, journalist and positive aging expert for Always Discreet, share three solutions for how to manage bladder leaks so you can continue to lead a healthy and active lifestyle:

  • Do exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor.
  • Watch your diet, and avoid artificial sweeteners and acidic fruits and juices. Also, limit alcoholic beverages.
  • Look for thin and slim liners, pads and disposable underwear.
