When was the last time a holiday or trip away was impacted in some way by your bladder weakness?
The fear of leaks can make leaving home and visiting new places feel quite scary and can take away from the excitement of enjoying time away with family and friends. “What access will I have to a loo? What will the public toilets will be like? How I am going to fit sufficient pads in to my carry on to last me my entire trip? I hate sitting on the side lines while my loved ones splash away in the water or play ball games as I can’t be fully ‘present’.
Any of this sound familiar? If so, it’s probably because these are scenarios shared by real INNOVO customers whose bladder weakness has directly impacted on their holiday plans. And it’s not surprising. Research we conducted found that 37% of women who suffer with bladder weakness feel forced to change or adapt their holiday plans due to the embarrassment and anxiety it can cause1. 36% of women said they wouldn’t go swimming while on holiday due to the fear of wearing a pad, and 1 in 10 women have cancelled their holiday completely! 1
INNOVO customer Kath shares her holiday story…
Every year we went to Casa Blanca in Spain. I love spending time with my family running around the beach, playing volleyball and building sand castles. But my worsening bladder weakness meant that I could no longer join in. I started making excuses as to why I stopped going with my family to the beach. It may sound strange to not open up about what I was really going through, but I was convincing myself too. It was almost like a coping mechanism so that I didn’t break altogether.

Kath treated her bladder weakness with INNOVO, and is now living life carefree, without the fear of leaks ruining the moment.
"After 4 weeks I saw a huge improvement. I started to wear smaller pads and was starting to feel like me again. Each week the symptoms gradually continued to improve. Seven weeks into the treatment I went on holiday. This was a highlight for me. It was the first holiday in 10 years that I really enjoyed. I was back playing all the beach games that I love with my daughter and it did not disappoint. Getting back on the sand felt better than ever before, knowing I could get stuck in with all the fun! I have completed the 12-week cycle and I can’t believe how amazing the results are – I’m dry for the first time in 10 years!", Kath, INNOVO customer.
