Adult Diapers? No Thanks! PeriCoach Is Here To Save The Day

     We all have that friend who loves to laugh but makes a mad dash to the bathroom the minute
the giggles start. The same thing happens when she coughs or jogs beside you at the park.

     Did you know that one in three women over the age of 18 experience involuntary bladder leakage at some point in their lifetime? Although it's common, it's not normal.

     Urinary incontinence affects close to 18 million women, but many are too embarrassed to discuss their problem----they prefer to cover it up by wearing bulky pads or adult diapers. Most women assume that bladder leakage is just a natural consequence of childbirth, menopause, and aging, and they mistakenly believe that their problem is untreatable.

     Not true!

     Medical experts are quick to recommend Kegel exercises as a first-line treatment for pelvic floor muscle strengthening. Unfortunately, statistics show that 50% of women are unsuccessful with their Kegel exercises, since it's mostly based on written or verbal instructions that are easily forgotten----especially during the busy weeks after childbirth.

     The good news is that there is now an FDA-approved system that offers a new option to strengthen and tone the pelvic floor muscles. The PeriCoach System is designed for women with stress, mild-to-moderate urge and mixed urinary continence. It contains a device with three biosensors and comes with a smartphone app to help patients perform pelvic floor muscle training in the privacy of their homes. The device is inserted into the vagina and the biosensors detect the strength of each muscle contraction. The results are then sent immediately to a smartphone over a Bluetooth wireless connection. How innovative is that?!

     PeriCoach is the only system available with this type of advanced technology that includes a web portal allowing clinicians and pelvic health specialists to monitor their patients' progress. The app collects and analyzes data in addition to sending out reminders to the patient to use the system----as well as a reminder to forward the data to their physician. It takes the guesswork out of tracking the progress of pelvic muscle development.

     The PeriCoach System is recommended by the American College of Physicians as a first-time treatment for urinary incontinence and was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in March 2015. It is now available by prescription from a clinician, nurse or physical therapist. For more information or to order PeriCoach directly, please visit  www.PeriCoach.com (use uploaded prescription when ordering).

     It's time to throw away those bulky adult diapers and treat urinary incontinence with the PeriCoach System TODAY!

  1. This is so cool.
    This actually would help my mom. But don't tell her I said that.
    And my husband, when I make him laugh so hard he tee tees himself.

  4. Here in France women do, what's commonly referred to as "stop-pipi", exercises. You cut off urine flow completely once or twice when you go for a wee. This way the pelvic muscles are being contracted and relaxed. Do it as often as you can, at least every day once or several times. In the beginning you will not completely succeed but if you are consistent it works really well. I'm well over 50, birthed two children and still do it every other day; no leakage for me.:)

    1. The problem is too many women forget about doing the exercises--they start off great, but over time they forget. PeriCoach is a great way to track your progress and to remind you to keep up with the exercises.

  5. Very interesting, Marcia! Now, if our phones get hacked the person will be able to see our pelvic floor muscle developments LOL. Sorry, I couldn't resist. It's revolutionary!

  6. Birthing two kids really messed me up! But happily I can report no problems since having surgery 12 years ago. I know some people would never resort to it but for me it was the best thing ever!!! I dance, laugh, sneeze, cough, jump and whatever other activity that causes the "unmentionable stress" you have mentioned without a care in the world :)

    1. Hey Beth, what was the surgery? Any surgeries I've heard of you can no longer jump, run, or lift heavy objects. That's one of the reasons I've avoided looking into a permanent fix.

  8. My 90 year old mother could benefit from this product, if it were dirt cheap. She'd wet her pants if she had to write a sizable check.
