We as women sometimes have issues that we are not really comfortable talking about with other people, even other moms or our doctors.
Urinary Incontinence is one of those issues, but did you know that childbirth is the number one cause of Stress Urinary incontinence, and some people with this condition may feel embarrassed, limit their social life, sometimes even stop exercising, it can be a very isolating problem. One third of the female population suffers from urine incontinence, and that is a crazy amount of women.
I recently learned about a new device that can help those with urinary incontinence no matter what the cause. It is called Apex. It is a medical device that will strengthen the pelvic floor muscles to stop urinary incontinence without pills, without surgery and without pain.
Surgery is one of the ways that doctors try to help with this problem, and I don’t know about you, but that is the last thing I ever want to do. I have had surgery for a few reasons in my life and none of them were fun. Not to mention the risks of infection, complications, and the time that you would need to recover. I don’t have time to take even a few days off from my home and kids, let alone the 6 weeks needed to recover from surgery.
Urinary Incontinence happens when the muscles and other tissue that support the bladder weaken, much like any other muscle in your body the only way to get that back, is to work out this muscle. I know people have said kegel exercises help, and maybe they do to a certain extent. The Apex does work. It works by specifically working on the muscles that you need to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles that you need to stop the leaking urine.
I don’t want to wear pads my whole life, I know you if you are suffering with this don’t want to either, this is a way you can solve this issue and not have to wear pads every day. Sometimes I find it frustrating when doctors say the best thing you can do is stock up on supplies, and wear dark clothes. I don’t want to do that, I want the problem solved. I have my toddlers doctor telling me to get my child out of diapers, and my doctor telling me to start wearing them, this is not the answer to urinary incontinence.
Apex is one of those things that your friends are not going to tell you about, I’m sorry they just aren’t and I know it seems like we should be able to talk about it to all of our friends, but that is not the reality of it.
Check out the video of Apex and see what you think of the device. Isn’t it time we take control of this issue and deal with it instead of just padding it? You can learn more about this on the Apex Facebook page as well as their Pinterest and Twitter feeds. Share this post with a friend and let’s not let it be secret anymore.
