Is bladder weakness stopping you from being you?

So, why do you think that 28% of women avoid going on dates? Because they don't have the time? Too busy with work? Or maybe they're just tired of the male species? As likely as some of these are, you guessed incorrectly. The real reason? To put it plain and simple, they're scared of weeing themselves. That's right, the subject that nobody wants to speak about – bladder weakness.

Valentine's day has just passed but love has left its scent in the air so if you haven't found it, it's not too late to run after it. However, if you suffer from bladder weakness, this may be a little harder for you. Not just because of the fact that if you run, you could be at risk of having a little accident, but because you let bladder weakness stop you from pursuing the opportunity of finding love. To all of you ladies who have found somebody to put a ring on it, this doesn't just apply to the singletons! As far as we're aware you have more than just one love in your life, whether it's the kids, your pets or the one that everybody forgets…yourself. Not only can bladder weakness affect your ability to date, it can also stop you from doing the activities you enjoy the most with the people who you love the most.

"This is currently eroding my confidence and I no longer want to go out with my son or husband. I feel dirty all the time and our sex life is non-existent."

"My husband and I love going to concerts! But whilst everyone was dancing, I learned that I couldn't even dance properly with my husband, I would need to run back and forth to the toilet which would mean I missed half the concert. My husband even had to tell me that enough is enough, stop complaining and do something about it"

Before starting their journey with INNOVO®, a lot of users would say that they had previously tried using pads or Kegel exercises to maintain the issue instead of resolving it, which would still restrict them from enjoying the activities they miss. Innovotherapy is a non-invasive way to restore your pelvic floor, treating the primary cause of urinary leaks rather than just masking the symptoms. 93% of users found a significant improvement after just 4 weeks.[1]

"I feel so much better, I have pride in myself again, I've lost 18lb, I go out on the trampoline with my son almost every day to have fun with him and to exercise."

"I finally have my sex drive back and there is no pain"

"My partner and I have booked to go and see one of our favourite comedians, something we have wanted to do for ages!"

The pelvic floor muscles are quite possibly our bodies biggest unsung hero.' Don't neglect it, find your freedom with INNOVO®.
