We Can’t Stop and We Won’t Stop for LBL

Life with LBL can be tricky so I’m sharing about Poise Thin-Shape pads as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #RecycleYourPeriodPad.

Getting older does not mean slowing down. Often it’s just the opposite. I just celebrated a birthday and celebrated for a whole week with girlfriends and family.

Even my dog joined the celebration at the Lazy Dog Café.

Is that just a California thing where you take your dog to dine with you?

Another birthday. …I’m in that empty-nest season and the next chapter is full of possibilities. I don’t WANT to be slowed down by LBL (light bladder leakage). It’s a reality for me and it is also a reality is that if affects 1 in 3 women. You laugh and you leak a little, you sneeze and you leak a little, you run and you leak a little, and seriously, I was stopping to change about 3 times a day. Enough of that, I found an easy fix and now I am getting on with life without stopping.

Poise brand has found a solution and had  introduced new Poise Thin-Shape pads, which are up to 40% thinner than original Poise pads and are made specifically for bladder leaks. They are not period pads, they are designed to move with your body.

Just wear them and enjoy life more, knowing that you can celebrate, laugh out loud and even sneeze without worry! If you have good friends, like I do, you can share everything, even the joys and challenges of our bodily functions, and then laugh it off and get on with the business of living life to the fullest.

Woman to woman, my friends have been there for me. They can handle my stupid jokes, my tears and fears, my complaining and my tendency to laugh a lot, even when it’s not appropriate. We have had to avoid even looking at each other sideways for fear of bursting into laughter. Do you have friends like that too?

Get out and have some fun and don’t let LBL stop you!

Having fun is not just for the young! We had a blast going paddleboarding and almost fell off several times from laughing so hard.

“And we can’t stop

And we don’t stop

We run things, things don’t run we

Don’t take nothing from nobody

Yeah, yeah

It’s our party and we can do what we want”

Light bladder leakage can’t stop you and won’t stop you if you just plan ahead. You can see my Poise pads in their discreet purple packaging, tucked inside my purse. I’m prepared!

LBL really stinks, so many people deal with it. I haven’t seen anywhere here in NJ where people can bring their dogs to eat.

I love that these pads are stylish and discreet! No one wants a thick diaper of sorts on when trying to live a normal, and active lifestyle.


I like the small size of these, perfect for putting in my purse. I like small and discreet.

I love that you have great friends. That is so important for women of every age. And good for you, not slowing down for LBL.


Definitely not something that is fun to have to deal with. But, a reality for far too many women!


I’m only 31 and have been suffering with LBL since I was a kid. Skinny urethra and refluxing ureters–surgery was eventually a fix, but it was a humiliating experience. I’m so glad there are options like this available that are way more convenient and comfortable!

I think it is great when a product is so reliable that it allows us to carry out our days. I would not want to be hindered from LBL either!

I am fortunate that I do not have to deal with this at the moment, but thankfully there are products available to help. Thanks for sharing this informative post.

Great product, better than using regular pads for sure. I like the flexibility they offer.


Lucky for me I have not had these issues yet… But I do know a few friends who age the same age as I am that are dealing with this.. I will one day I am sure, and Poise will be the go to for me too.
