Q & A

I have what they call "urge urinary incontinence." Why can't I use Impressa?

Poise® Impressa®Bladder Supports are only meant for Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). This type of leakage is often caused by activities like coughing, jumping, laughing, or other sudden bodily movements that result in a change in pressure within the bladder. Impressa® helps prevent leaks by lifting and supporting the urethra. Urge Urinary Incontinence (UUI), also known as overactive bladder, is characterized by a sudden and urgent need to urinate due to bladder contractions, not by a problem with support of the urethra. Impressa® has no effect on neurogenic bladder and other such symptoms related to urge incontinence. If you experience UUI, try Poise® pads or liners.
