Female Urinary Incontinence in High Intensity Exercise

First the glass ceiling and now the pelvic floor.

Until I recently saw a link to a video posted on Linkedin on the subject I wasn't aware of just how common this problem appears to be for so many fit and healthy young women.

The person who made the original post seemed to think it was a bad thing to post a Youtube video on the topic.

Like most health problems, I think it's a good idea to get it out into the open, particularly as it seems to be quite prevalent. There may be women who are so embarrassed by the problem they are scared to exercise and don't realize they are not alone.

In the gym where I go there's a sign out the front saying, 'No towel, no train.' Maybe there needs to be information about this problem in womens' change rooms and a sign advising women who have this problem to wear something that maintains a high standard of hygiene within the gym.

So far from thinking it's wrong to bring this topic out into the open, I think it's good.

In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and make sure you take your towel to the gym.
