why?

how did my name get selected ?

I'm only 40 and have exceptional bladder control.

I feel violated in a way.......it's undermining my confidence that someone/company out there thinks I need tena lady pads.

times are hard and they will be marketing to previously ignored groups
I promise!!

Or someone has seen the latest advert where it says about asking for a free sample and a friend has done it to you grin

I'll have them. Some of us need them. I needed them as a 26 year old with a lovely size 10 figure.

Be grateful.

Oh my God can you send them to me, pregnant with my 3rd and for the first time ever i have developed incontinence, i am blush. I'm too embarrassed to buy them. I am 31.

Send them my way! I got so excited at Ds's football match the other week I did actually wee a little bit!

I love a good freebie me, start stocking up!

I had to use Tena for a while in both pregnancies and for a little while after too, its no big deal. (Of course I'd prefer not to need them ever, but who wouldn't?)

Its such a taboo and it really shouldn't be. Loads of women in their 30s use them, childbirth can do nasty, nasty things to your bits!

it just made me feel a bit old because ds1 citzencard proving he was 18 arrived at the same time.

It definately should'nt be a taboo but still is a bit 'eek' well that made me feel old if you weren't expecting it

send them back with a label saying Cheeky Bastards

Don't be too concerned OP. I was MIL's and started my period, so asked if she had anything that would do until I get home. She whipped out a Tena pad and I certainly wasn't going to say NO to it when it save more bleeding hearteache for poor old knicks. TBH the pads were a godsend. AND, they can be used for stemming bleeding if you come across an accident and the victim has a bad gash. I could think of all sorts of uses for Tena Lady pads.

I got a personal invitation to a spider and varicose viens open morning at a private local hospital; I've just turned 40! Was very cross!

Hmm, best not laugh too hard at this thread. (I'm 36) hmm

I got some sent to my mum. I bet someone has put your details in for a free sample.

LadyThumb Sat 02-Jul-11 23:31:49

Think yourself lucky you don't need them yet.

I'm clenching right now, thanks for reminding me. Come on ladies one, two, three, four .....

BluddyMoFo Sun 03-Jul-11 09:09:53

Perhaps they have undercover market researchers looking for women who stop and cross their legs when they sneeze or cough?!! <crosses legs, before LOLing>

cheekeymonkey Sun 03-Jul-11 09:35:51

Pmsl. oops, perhaps I need one? grin

Do you live in a road with lots of bungalows? I used to, and got personalised mailings about retirement homes (in my early 20s). I found it funny then, would probably feel quite affronted now, at 40!

I also received a sample in the mail recently, I suspect it was one of my 'hilarious' friends signing me up on the Tena Lady site. Wish I knew where they were now - am 40 weeks pregnant and they might come in handy...

I could have done with some when I had a cold recently! My pelvic floor must have got a bit mashed 12 weeks ago giving birth to my 9lb 15 er.

Sun Life keep sending me pre-approved Over 50 Plan application forms (I am 34). At first I just ignored it, by the 3rd copy I think someone is trying to tell me something. hmm
