We spoke a few women- each of different ages, life stages and situations that have contributed to their bladder leakage. One is an elite athlete and the second is a post-menopausal woman who wants to enjoy the prime of her life without having to run to the bathroom constantly. Check out these testimonials below of their journey to INNOVO and what resulted after. If you think you’re destined for leaking, think again, and join their path to dryness.
LORRAINE, POST MENOPAUSAL
At 51 menopause hit me like a truck. I was fine one day and the next day I wasn’t. I got the lottery of everything: mood swings, exhaustion, creepy crawly skin. And my incontinence. Even having sex, it would feel like I had to wet myself. Or when I’d travel long distances, I would have to wear pads or bring extra underwear on plane rides because I knew something would happen. I’m a big laugher, or if I sneezed, I knew it would happen.
I figured why not use something that gets to the root cause? It feels UNIQUE the first time, but the fact that I can multitask during my treatment is amazing - I can be working on my computer, reading a book. It gives me something to look forward to.
I started to see a difference in my leakage after only using INNOVO for 3-4 weeks. I no longer need to cross my legs everytime I laugh or sneeze.
The one thing I really like about INNOVO is that it provides a solution that treats the the root cause as opposed to “let’s wear this for now and you’ll continue having problems.”
I did Kegels before but they didn’t help. INNOVO solved my incontinence problem because it gives you the perfect Kegel.
SABRINA, ELITE RUNNER
I began leaking a bit since I started running eight years ago. Every time I would go out for a run, I would end up peeing my pants. I just felt like I had no control.
It was embarrassing. Before marathons, I’d wear darker shorts so people wouldn’t see what was happening. But I didn’t know what I was going through. I just thought it was normal.
I discovered INNOVO and started using it in October in preparation for the New York marathon. In joining the INNOVO community, I realized how many women were going through what I was, and how they felt so embarrassed to talk about. It’s more common than everyone thinks. Especially as a runner who experiences so much impact on the lower body and on my muscles, it’s so common, and yet no one talks about it.
I started my 30 minute INNOVO workout about five times a week, and my leaking became so much better. This past February, I ran the Miami half marathon, and had no issues whatsoever - I was leak-free. That’s when I really felt the difference.
I love how INNOVO can be part of your daily routine. You can take it anywhere. It fits into every bag. I took it to Germany, I took it to Miami. I do it mostly at night when I’m watching TV or sometimes in the morning when I’m having my coffee. It all depends on the day. There’s such value with INNOVO. It’s so worth the money both physically and mentally. I feel more confident than I’ve ever been.
TRINITY, POSTPARTUM MOM
“I started leaking a few weeks after my third child, Luca was born. I was in the bathroom and sneezed and felt this gush, and I thought, oh my god is something wrong? I had never felt that before. I’m not around mothers or women who talk about what happens after you give birth, so I didn’t know what it was.
Every time I went to sneeze or cough, I would pee myself. It was so surreal. I started wearing liners everywhere. It was really stressful. I felt so self-conscious around my husband, always running to the bathroom to clean up. I was “freshening up” a lot.” I just wasn’t comfortable talking about it. I felt like I’d be judged and was so insecure about the whole situation. It was a feeling like I couldn’t control myself. I wanted to gain back control of my body.
I was told to do Kegels, but it was really hard and I didn’t have time. I thought, OK I have to figure out next steps so I’m not peeing on myself.
I got an email about INNOVO, I read about it in-depth. I was matching my symptoms with what it said on the site, and was like OK I have to try it. I have to get the strength back in my pelvic floor and fix this leaking problem. I wanted to be able to laugh again.
I remember putting on the bike shorts and I felt these exercises, these contractions. I could feel my pelvic floor lifting and releasing. Now because of INNOVO, when I laugh, I don’t squirt. I feel so much better. Before, I wasn’t as confident. Now it’s like I can wear my favorite jeans everyday.
I use INNOVO laying down and watching movies with my kids, it’s like I don’t even know I’m wearing it. It fits into my lifestyle perfectly. I like to relax while I’m doing it. I do it during Luca’s naptime. It’s like 30 minutes of self-care. I’m taking care of my body.
