What are Exercise Induced Leaks?
Exercise Induced Leaks are leaks triggered by high-impact or strenuous activities. They’re completely different from the type of leak that happens when you sneeze or laugh, which is considered to be stress incontinence. Exercise Induced Leaks, or athletic incontinence, are only caused by high-impact activities. If you’ve had a baby and tried to do a jumping jack or hopped around a bouncy house with your child, you probably know what we’re talking about.
How common are Exercise Induced Leaks?
Very common. In fact, if you don’t experience Exercise Induced Leaks yourself, odds are that you have a sister or friend who does. A number of reports indicate that as many as one out of three active young mothers will experience athletic incontinence when they engage in high-impact activities after having children. That includes running, high-intensity workouts, and even sprinting after toddlers.
How thin is the JustGo Pad?
It is 1.5 cm or just over ½ inch.
And when you’re not working out, you may want to use the JustGo Pad as an all-day panty-liner to ensure you’re covered in the event of a sneeze or laugh-induced leak.
How often do I need to change the pad?
If you’re using the pad for a hard workout (e.g. a 10 mile run, 75 minutes of total conditioning, a 50 minute Insanity workout, etc.), it will go the distance. You won’t need to change it until you’re done and resting in the locker room.
What is the shape of the JustGo Pad™?
Because we know the JustGo Pad™ will be worn under athletic clothing, we took strides to make them as minimal, low-profile, and non-bulky as possible, while still being incredibly absorbent, of course. The pad is a unique teardrop shape that provides protection where it is most needed, and none where it’s not. It’s durable and discreet even under the tightest of athletic apparel.
I only have occasional leaks when I sneeze or laugh. Is the JustGo Pad™ still a good choice for me?
Absolutely. Unfortunately, you never know when a sneeze or a laugh might trigger a urine leak, and it’s not always easy to change or dry your pants when you’re out and about. So why not start your day with a JustGo Pad™ and know you’re ready for anything?
Where can I buy JustGo™ products?
JustGo Pads™ are available on our website, as well as on Amazon. If you buy them via our website, we can ship you 10, 20, or 30 pads a month, depending on your needs, requests, and the membership tier you choose. Rest assured that we have your privacy in mind and ship all of our products in plain packaging.
Why don’t standard incontinence pads and sanitary napkins work for athletic incontinence?
Menstruation and athletic incontinence are two totally different conditions. They require very different absorption techniques, odor-fighting properties and solutions. Sanitary napkins are not designed to absorb urine and plump up. Panty-liners absorb even smaller quantities of fluid.
Regular incontinence pads may seem like a solution for Athletic Leaks™, however, if you’ve tried using one while exercising, you know they’re bulky and visible under tight workout clothing. JustGo Pads™ are different because they’re designed with the absorbent core of the pad directly underneath the urethra, where protection is needed. This means the leak is concentrated in the front, not the back, and the pad is not visible from behind.
How much does the JustGo Pad™ absorb?
It may not look like it because it’s so light, but the JustGo Pad™ is incredibly absorbent. Believe it or not, it holds up to 140 ml, or just a little over ½ cup, of fluid. And trust us, you will never come close to leaking that much while exercising.
How does the JustGo Pad™ stay in place?
The JustGo Pad™ has a super sticky adhesive strip that runs down the center to keep it in place. There are no wings, ropes, pulleys, or any other unnecessary material to add bulk under your workout clothes. Simply peel off the backing and stick it on.
