Kaytlyn, 23

As my leaks happened overnight, my fear of having to wear a diaper to bed was becoming a reality. I didn’t want to admit that something was wrong.

If I’m not spending time with my one-year-old, you can find me volunteering at the animal shelter or baking sweet treats for friends and family. However, the joy I got out of these activities wasn’t the same once I started experiencing leaks. Being just 23-years-old, I was shocked when I noticed that my clothes and bedding were wet when I woke up in the mornings. As my leaks happened overnight, my fear of having to wear a diaper to bed was becoming a reality. I didn’t want to admit that something was wrong. But my leakage became difficult to ignore, as I grew increasingly embarrassed and self-conscious. With hopes of remedying the issue, I stopped drinking water, which I soon found out was not the answer.

Not knowing where to turn, I talked to my spouse and mother who suggested I see a doctor. After consulting my physician, I learned that my overnight leaks are a result of a neurological disorder. With no medication available to treat the condition, I turned to TENA. Hesitant at first, I ordered a free sample of the overnight pads online. I quickly noticed a huge sense of relief as the absorbency of the pads allowed me to wake up feeling dry. Using TENA helps me protect not only my clothes and bedding, but my sense of confidence as well. The overnight pads are comfortable, and I don’t feel as if I’m wearing a diaper, which was one of my main concerns. Instead, I wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on everything the day throws at me. I now pick up my TENA pads from my local CVS, which is quite convenient.

I learned that you shouldn’t blame yourself when it comes to the Unexpected Leak™. Even though it may be hard to admit you suffer from bladder weakness, especially at age 23, it’s important to recognize that it’s not your fault. The key is finding a product that works for you. Discovering TENA overnight pads allowed me to move forward with my life and focus on being a mother to my child. Thanks TENA!
