The loss of urine started to happen during pregnancy. It attacked when I sneezed, when I coughed, when I laughed and even when I went to the gym – very important to fight the huge number of pounds I had gained.
It bothered me tremendously. I stopped exercising, which has always been my escape. And whenever I was with my husband or with my friends, I was afraid to laugh. I couldn’t get this out of my head. I didn’t live life at ease. I was not experiencing my pregnancy to the full.
I didn’t tell anyone what was going on, even when post childbirth, with a baby to look after, the problem persisted. I just had to bend down to take my child out of the crib to feel the leakage of urine. It was extremely uncomfortable. I started using a daily dressing at all times.
