Oops Moments With Tena - Girls Night In!

Having HMS whilst also having had 2 children I'm finding that my pelvic just isn't what it used to be!

I never knew that my Hypermobility Syndrome could affect my bladder until I was waiting to see a specialist in London and they handed me a leaflet asking if people with HMS would be willing to join in a medical investigation for it - because it affects the muscles.

What i feel was an embarrassing subject growing up is now not as embarrassing, especially knowing that it happens to a lot of women after giving birth especially and thanks to Tena we can be safe knowing any little oops moments are taken care of!

A little while ago Tena invited me to an event to have a girls night which sadly I couldn't attend and it sounded like such good fun but they kindly sent me a girls night in pack to enjoy with my friends (who happened to be my mum and our good friend Julie)

We had a great time chatting about our Oops moments, like the time I left home to go out with my friend and my top was inside out with the label sticking out and I had no clue until my friend pointed it out (one of those ground swallowing moments the same as when your zip is down on your jeans!)

I think its important to know that little leaks may affect women of all ages (in my case when associated with a joint condition) and also the physical and hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and child birth can increase the risk associated with leakage - there are exercises you can do to help strengthen your pelvic floor HERE.


Thank you to Tena for sending the girls night in pack, we had a good laugh :0)
