As World Continence Week gets underway next week, it’s time for New Zealand women (and men) to tackle leaky bladder issues head on. Return to Form has a strong focus on Women’s Health and leaky problems, targeting the problem by strengthening your muscles.
One in every three Kiwi women living with weak bladders accept leaks and pains as their lot in life.
“The theme of World Continence week is Tell someone who cares, which creates a fantastic opportunity to speak about this important health issue. Too many women put up with leaks, pains and embarrassment because of bladder and bowel issues. Buying pads and liners doesn’t address the underlying causes, it just hide the symptoms.”
“Women are more affected by bladder issues than men, and it’s something that women, young and old, grapple with. Symptoms can range from a little bit of leakage, to the constant need to go to the bathroom, pain, and constant discomfort. Sound familiar? Too many women are just stocking up on thin panty liners and hoping for the best.”
Don’t put up with dripping: book in now! If you call now you will receive your Pelvic floor health session for $99* (save $46), with a specialist physio.

Other Incontinence Issues?
Continence issues can also affect your sex life, yet it’s a problem that goes unmentioned for the most part. Weak pelvic floor muscles can affect sexual intercourse and reaching orgasm for both partners. It can be hard enough for women to get back into intimacy after a baby is born, but when continence issues are ignored, your love life can really take a hit.
The most common symptoms of incontinence for men and women are:
- Increased frequency of urination
- Urge incontinence (sudden and uncontrollable desire to go to the toilet and/or leaking before you can get to the toilet)
- Stress incontinence (leaking associated with activity, change of position, coughing, sneezing.
- Exercise Embarrassment.
Urinary leakage during exercises is a common but unmentioned occurrence, “Most of us have been going hard at the gym or run and get a little leak – it’s more common than anyone thinks, and because of the taboo nature of ‘peeing your pants’, no one talks about, let alone seeks help.”
Over 51% of kiwi women admit to have some degree of leakage during exercise.
