Sleeping and a sensitive bladder

  • All of us are guilty of not getting enough sleep from time to time, but regular sleep problems should be fixed to ensure we feel (and look) our best and stay healthy. Night-time is your chance to rest and recharge your batteries, but all sorts of disturbances can affect sleep – from a snoring partner to needing to go to the loo.

    If a sensitive bladder is waking you up through the night and affecting your relaxation, there’s no need to worry. Just follow a couple of these simple pointers to help you to get the restorative sleep you need to make the most of every day…

    • Wear the Always Discreet product that best suits your needs from the new range of liners, pads and pants. Flexible, comfortable, with a unique highly-absorbent core and the exclusive OdourLock technology that neutralises odours instantly and continuously, Always Discreet pads protect you 2x more than you may need and if you want up to 100% protection and comfort, Always Discreet pants are the right product for you. So you’ll have the security and confidence you need to relax and drift off to sleep until the morning.
    • Try to go to bed and wake at regular times, even at weekends. Late nights and oversleeping play havoc with your body clock and can upset your natural sleep cycle. Keeping to the same pattern every night will also help you if you’re trying to re-train your bladder.
    • Avoid eating heavy meals in the evening – a light meal a couple of hours before you turn in is best. Go easy on citrus fruits, spicy foods, tomatoes and onions, which can irritate a sensitive bladder.
    • Stay hydrated during the day but avoid alcohol, caffeine and fizzy drinks, which can all stimulate the bladder. Not drinking enough water makes your pee more concentrated, which can boost your chances of bladder irritation, so it’s important to stay hydrated.

    Always Discreet offers a wide range of products to fit the needs of all women with a sensitive bladder. Femininity and discretion are key features of the new line-up. Made with a new generation of ultra thin materials, the range will keep you protected while remaining discreet.

    The liners and pads have an absorbent DualLock core that helps lock away odour and wetness. They’re up to 40% thinner* than the leading brand, yet offer twice as much absorbency than you may need.** The pants offer up to 100% comfort and protection. Plus, all products have the exclusive OdourLock technology that neutralises odours continuously.
