Menstruation, a biological necessity for a woman’s healthy reproductive system, has been a stigma & taboo subject for centuries, leading to women using unsanitary menstrual products or even leading to girls missing or dropping out of school, women missing work, and a shroud of stigma continually surrounds periods. We have all come up with an alternative name for our periods, Aunt flow, the crimson wave, time of the month, to name only a few, we’ve all mutedly whispered ‘period’ during a conversation with a close friend, or quietly asked a close co-worker if they have a tampon as your period arrived early.

White is often the most avoided of colours when on our periods. The taboo of wearing white jeans, skirts, and even our bed sheets are often something that we want to keep white and are notorious for getting ruined due to a leak or a drip or one tiny dot to make them less than desirable to wear; so we just don’t wear them when we’re menstruating, or at least not until you’re over halfway through.

Bladder Leakage Taboo

There are still some functions and natural occurrences in our bodies that carry a taboo. We are beginning to talk more openly and comfortably about certain things and especially natural bodily functions, however, some of them we still cloak in embarrassment and pretend aren’t happening to us and don’t end up talking about the issue, or the shame that surrounds it, and this is the case with bladder leakage. This cloud of taboo embarrassment can also then cause many conditions of bladder leakage to go undiagnosed a lot longer than they need to. Bladder leakage affects 1 in 4 women! Yes, 1 in 4.
