Don’t Let LBL Hold You Back From Getting Fit
There are so many issues women deal with after giving birth that not everyone likes to talk about. Did you know it takes about almost a year or more for your body to get back to itself after having a baby? I gave birth to my third child last summer and I can tell you in all honesty that personally suffer from LBL due to weak pelvic floor muscles as a result of pregnancy and childbirth. I am so ready to get my prebaby body back, I want to get out on the road and jog, shed a few pounds and feel confident about myself again. However, little things like jumping on the trampoline with my kids and a few giggles has me rushing to the bathroom… even the smallest of activities that involves exercise triggers LBL. This is nothing to be ashamed of and I hope from sharing my personal story I can encourage you to educate yourself and discover ways to not let it control your life… don’t let LBL hold you back from getting fit!
WHAT IS LBL?
-One in three women experience Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) – little leaks that can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise.
-Weak pelvic floor muscles, pregnancy, childbirth and weight gain are just a few LBL contributors.
WHAT CAUSES LBL?
Just as no two women are alike, there’s no single reason that LBL happens. Some of the most common things that lead to uninvited leaks include:
•Physical changes from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause
•Complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson’s disease
•Bladder or urinary tract infections
•Bladder irritants (certain foods and beverages)
