23 Jun 50% of women in East Anglia experience light bladder weakness
More than half of women in East Anglia experience light bladder weakness, new research from bladder weakness experts lights by TENA* has revealed.
Worryingly, despite its prevalence, the experience is having a negative impact on women in the region’s self-esteem, with over a third (40 per cent) saying that light bladder weakness has affected their self-confidence.
Another 84 per cent claim light bladder weakness has prevented them from doing something in their day-to-day life, such as exercising (42 per cent), socialising with friends (29 per cent) or by worrying about where the nearest toilet is (54 per cent).
As a brand that empowers women experiencing light bladder weakness to live life to the full, lights by TENA believe such behavior is the result of widespread taboos and a lack of conversation around the subject matter.
“Many women don’t realise just how common light bladder weakness is, which can oftentimes prevent them from opening up about their worries. This is very much the case for women in East Anglia – as these results show,” explains brand manager for lights by TENA, Rachael Sumner.
