This has happened:
I checked and rechecked the packaging multiple times to make sure I wasn’t getting the liners meant for my period. Why must they make the packaging so similar? I know these are with the Depends, but even those can be mistaken for a Lady-Time product if you have no idea what you’re really looking at.
I feel lucky that I was able to avoid needing these after G was born. They would have been helpful a handful of times, but I can count on one hand the number of times I had to change my underwear because I peed myself. But giving birth to L has made bladder control a thing of the past.
Sneezing, coughing, blowing my nose, air escaping my derrière (ahem)…If I don’t remember to cross my legs before it happens pee often happens too. And if it doesn’t it sure feels like it will.
Being sick this winter has made things in this department ridiculous. I decided it was time to go the liner route. And since bladder leakage can be quite common in women my age due to pregnancy and birthing a child, I decided not to be ashamed. I’m not done having kids (I don’t feel done anyway) so I’m not going to consider surgery to try to correct the issue. I’ve done more keegles in the past year and a half than I ever have in my life and that isn’t helping. So, incontinence liners it is!
After all, it’s more convenient to change a liner than your panties.
