Stop Bladder Leaks and Incontinence Before It Happens With Finess
This is a sponsored post for Finess. All feelings, thoughts, and words expressed in this article are my own. I only work with brands I feel can truly benefit my readers.
When asked to try out Finess and write my opinion on them I was hesitant. I already use a product I trust, and love for my bladder leakage. Then I read more information about Finess and discovered that Finess is different from the product I am currently using, and just may have a place in my life when it comes to controlling my SUI or Stress Urinary Incontinence.
Women all over the world experience bladder leakage. Mine happens most often when I laugh, cough, sneeze, and even more so when trying to do physical activities.
FACT: SUI most commonly occurs in women during and after menopause, as well as post-partum.
FACT: If you suffer from SUI, you are not alone – it is estimated that 1 in 4 over the age of 40 women experience SUI.
Finess arrives in a discrete package and box. Just happens that the box is my favorite color!
My mother started working out almost daily at a local gym and has been wanting me to join her, but my bladder leakage has been one major stopping point in doing so. While what I have been using does work, and works well, it is not necessarily comfortable. Feeling the moisture against my skin, and having a pad there, just isn’t always conducive to being in unusual positions often associated with working out. At times I am also concerned maybe people notice a slight bulge “down there”.
You may be thinking that this sounds difficult, but it is not, I promise. I was nervous, but after watching the “how to” video, and reading the instructions, I was wearing my Softpath in no time, and you know what? They are comfortable! Far more comfortable than my other method, especially when it comes to working out!
The Finess Softpatch is placed over the urethral opening. The specially formulated hydrogel adhesive gently seals it in place until it’s removed. When increased abdominal pressure is placed on the bladder from a sneeze, laugh, or a cough, Finess prevents the urine from escaping, instead of ending up with soggy, unpleasant, and often irritating pads.
Personally, sometimes when wearing the pads to catch bladder leaks, my skin becomes sore, red, and irritated. When using Finess Softpatch I do not experience any of these issues.
So my next question was “Is Finess safe?”
Yes it is! In fact, Finess is the first and most clinically tested FDA cleared solution to prevent or decrease episodes of bladder leakage in women with stress incontinence.
Now you may be asking if Finess is right for you and I want you to be sure it is before purchasing because there are different forms of bladder leakage so check out this questionnaire, to find out.
PLEASE NOTE:Finess is designed for women with SUI. It is not intended to be used by women with urge incontinence, sometimes also referred to as Overactive Bladder
The following is important to me:
Finess is made in the USA from materials that have a proven history of use in medical applications. The foam body is made from a material often used for medical products in contact with sensitive tissues. The principal component of the hydrogel adhesive is also used in other devices such as contact lenses and permanent medical implants.
Finess works for me because I want something more discrete when working out, and I want to avoid irritation and bulk. I am not saying I do not still love my regular brand of bladder leaks protection, nor that I will stop using it, as I feel each have their time and place in my life. What I love about Finess is that it gives me a viable option for certain situations, and times.
One thing I love about the company is that they truly wanted my real opinion and did not “encourage” me as some brands have (that I refused to work with) to write only positive things about their product! In fact, if you watch the video where first time users discuss their experience, which was made by Fitness, you will see how transparent, honest, and open they are about the Finess experience, and what to expect.
This gives me great confidence in the Finess company, and is what sold me on trying Finess out, and working with them on this article. Honesty, openness, and a true desire to help women. I am proud to be chosen to tell others about Finess!
Now that I have Finess in my life, I can start working out with my mother. I may not go every day, I am not that much of a fanatic haha, but I will join her a few times a week, wearing my Finess Softpatch, feeling confident!
