Women have been suffering from light bladder leaks for thousands of years. The changes that the female body goes through such as childbirth or menopause or a traumatic event that damages muscles and nerves like surgery can cause what is known as Stress Urinary Incontinence or SUI. SUI is a condition in which the pelvic floor muscles that help regulate and control the flow of urine are weakened or damaged for various reasons, triggering involuntary leaks whenever pressure is placed on the bladder, urinary tract, or abdomen. The pressure that can trigger leaks can be minimal. Laughing too hard or sneezing can turn into a leak for many women. Although many probably don’t admit or discuss their bladder leaks, SUI is common with around 1 in 4 adult women in the US experiencing leaks. But urinary incontinence is not a new human experience. Women and men have been working and searching for solutions to improve quality of life, everyday comfort, and to simply reduce leaks for a long time. One of the solutions that has been developed is by using a device called a pessary.
