Can we talk... sporting leakage?

I'm sure this has been done to death before, but... how does everyone else deal with sporting um leakage?

I'm two years post-child, desperate to get properly fit again, but feel really self-concious because I'm suffering quite a bit of Tena-related incidents. I used to run a lot - great for time availability, but awful for leakage.

I go before I go out, but still suffer if I dare to go above a shuffle pace. Not talking floods, but you know, enough.

I started doing Insanity but a lot of that was too hard because of this issue (although the general pace was bang on), and find myself needing to do a LOT of the modifiers on T25, which is infuriating.

So what do you do? How much of this is 'normal'? Do you just suck it up and sneak Tena ladies into your online shopping order? Pelvic floor exercises don't seem to be doing a lot.

I just wear a sanitary towel when I'm exercising. I'm 11 months post birth but can't really say it's got any better.

I think the worst thing for me is feeling it 'go'. I hate it. Particularly bad when doing Insanity or T25 with the other half, who couldn't understand why I'd throw a mini paddy and sprint to the loo three minutes into a workout blush

I am the same as you - feeling the flood is horrible. I just bought some tena that will withstand it and am planning on seeing my doctor.

I did read that doing squats would help

Stop doing impact keep doing the pelvic floor and have lots of sexy time and do your pelvic floor exercises during sexy time it will be a win win. You should only do high impact once your control is re-established or the pelvic floor exercises are being negated by the jumping. Good luck and it will get better.

And yes squats help as long as you do them properly and tighten your core (so you are doing pelvic floor exercises while squatting iykwim)
