Every woman knows that becoming a mom is a life-changing experience. While most of these changes are positive, the physical toll it takes can be extremely negative. The worst problem for me has been the urinary changes and I’m not alone—1 in 3 women suffer from incontinence!
Incontinence can be caused by a stretching and/or weakening of the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles at the base of the torso that are responsible for supporting the internal organs. During childbirth, it is very common for this to occur and when the pelvic floor becomes stretched or weakened, a woman may experience bladder leakage when coughing, laughing, sneezing or exercising.
For a long time now, I’ve struggled with urinary problems. This problem has effected the quality of my daily life. Not only is it messy and unpleasant, it can take a toll on self esteem as well. I was way too embarrassed to ask friends for advice and honestly even talking to a doctor about it can be hard. I tried to ignore it, but wearing a pad every single day is just a drag! Now that summer is coming, it’s also limiting my fashion choices.
Desperate for help, I started researching my options. My doctor’s only suggestions were medication and possibly also surgery! That was way too drastic and I decided to keep looking and stumbled upon Attain, a non-invasive, non-surgical, non-drug solution that allows you to regain bladder control and stop bladder leakage.
Best of all, Attain is used in the privacy and comfort of your own home. (This was a huge part of why I liked it!)
Attain is simple to use. The kit comes with full instructions plus a DVD for additional help. You will lie on your back or side. The device should be coated with conductive gel, then inserted vaginally. After insertion, it should be inflated until it feels snug.
When I first started using the product, I wasn’t getting the desired results. I contacted Apex and they put me in touch by phone with an awesome clinician. It was suggested that I adjust the stimulation, and it worked like a charm. I’m very pleased with the results so far and will continue to use it.
By using Attain, I feel like I’m finally getting my life back and looking forward to wearing a bathing suit and being able to swim with my family again.
