Different life events sometimes cause conditions that may raise various thoughts and questions. On this page we will collect information, knowledge and our best tips in different areas affecting female bodies and health.

Pregnancy

Bladder leaks during and after pregnancy

A lot is happening in your body during a pregnancy. Among other things, pressure will increase on your pelvic floor, its ligaments and your bladder. Hormones contribute to softening your pelvic floor muscles, making them more elastic ahead of delivery. Together this can lead to bladder leaks.

Can I use Efemia Bladder Support while pregnant?

We haven’t tested the Efemia Bladder Support on pregnant people; therefore, we cannot recommend that you use it while pregnant. 

The Bladder

How the bladder normally works

When your bladder is full a signal is sent to your brain to let you know you need to pee. The bladder will empty itself with the help of the muscles surrounding it which contract.

An uncontrollable bladder

Do you sometimes experience a very urgent need to pee? That could be your bladder suddenly contracting. Uncontrolled bladder contractions are not dangerous but can lead to bladder leaks.

Different types of incontinence 


There are different types of incontinence. The most common are stress urinary incontinence and urge incontinence. Stress urinary incontinence is leaking urine when you laugh, cough, sneeze or exercise; urge incontinence is when you feel an urgent need to pee, but can’t “hold on”.

Exercise & the pelvic floor

Exercising with incontinence

Exercising makes us feel good. It reduces stress, as well as, makes us happier and more alert. You don’t have to give up exercising because of bladder leakage, but it can be smart to adapt your activities.

How hard can I train?

If you leak when you exercise it may be better to adapt your activity so you’re not stressing your pelvic floor. There are new guidelines to help postnatal women return to exercise safely, and tests you can do see how strong your pelvic floor is.

Pelvic floor exercises

The pelvic floor is very important to our lower pelvis and the organs above it. By exercising your pelvic floor muscles, they are better able to respond to increases in abdominal pressure, support your bladder and stop you from leaking, among other things.

Help & support 

Shame

Shame prevents us from feeling well, from daring to talk about our bodies and from seeking help. We need to stop apologising for ourselves and our bodies!

Dare to talk about it

If we don’t talk about our more intimate health issues, we feel more alone and it becomes more difficult for us to seek help. How are we to know when to seek help if we don’t know what’s normal? We must dare to talk about our bodies!
