“I was surprised by how quickly ELITONE started to work! Within 1 ½ – 2 weeks, I saw a difference, especially with running. I’ve had issues with leaking since I was a teenager, but it got much worse after having my daughter 6 years ago, plus a bad flu where I became terrified of sneezing. I wish I had bought ELITONE sooner!”

– Lauren, 38, Runner and Mom of 1

40% of Elite Runners Leak with Exercise

Bladder leaks aren’t a worry for just the fastest ladies in your running club.  They happen regardless of your pace or mileage.  In fact, 1 in 3 women leak urine when they exercise (or laugh, or cough or sneeze). This is called stress urinary incontinence. It’s usually associated with weak pelvic floor muscles, and the physical exertion of running can make the leaks worse. If you’re quietly dealing with the worry and embarrassment of leaking when running, know that you’re not alone and that there are solutions.

Tired of covering your leaks?

So what can I do about my Leaks?

Experts suggest a variety of ways to deal with your incontinence, including:

  • Good Planning – This may seem obvious, but go to the toilet before you run, don’t over hydrate, and know where public bathrooms are accessible on your route.
  • Kegel Exercises – Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles with Kegel exercises is often a doctor’s first suggestion for treating incontinence.  It’s important to do them correctly and often enough.  ELITONE® helps with that!
  • Form Adjustments – Each running step puts pressure on your pelvic floor muscles and bladder, causing leaks.  Work on reducing the bounce in your stride to reduce this pressure.  Running with a slight forward lean can activate your core and keep everything in place.
  • Clothing – Compression running pants can support the lower abdomen and keep your core under control.
  • Vaginally Inserted Therapies – These include inserted weights (e.g. Jade Egg), sensors that tell you whether you’re doing Kegels correctly, and muscle stimulators that exercise your pelvic floor for you. Here are a few available devices
  • External Stimulation –  Newly developed , FDA-cleared devices like ELITONE exercise your pelvic floor muscles without needing to insert anything vaginally. The device won an important “Best New Product Award”.
  • Surgery – For the most bothersome cases of incontinence your doctor may recommend a surgery to create more support for your pelvic floor and bladder.

FAQ’s from Runners with Leaks

Why am I leaking?

Your pelvic floor muscles act as a base that supports many of your internal organs, including your bladder. With each running stride you put tremendous pressure on these muscles. If these muscles are weak,  a little bit of urine can squeeze past them with every step. During a long run these muscles can become completely fatigued, resulting in even larger leaks.

Will it get worse?

Left untreated, stress incontinence typically gets worse. Think of your pelvic floor like any other muscle. If you don’t exercise it, it gets weaker and weaker. Unfortunately, many women ignore their incontinence, thinking its a natural part of aging. It’s not, and it should be treated.

Should I stop running?

If your symptoms are relatively mild there is no reason to stop exercising. What is important is that you pursue treatment. If you have severe incontinence it’s a good idea to discuss it with your healthcare provider to determine if exercise is making your incontinence worse.
