JustGo Girl Takes on Women and Athletic Leaks

A few weeks ago, I had an opportunity to attend a luncheon and talk about an issue that many women, including myself, have experienced. I inherited what I assume has to be a small bladed from my mother. Incontinence, which is the involuntary leakage of urine, is affects more women then I knew. One out of three women have incontinence while working out. I would even believe that the number is higher for women outside of the parameters of working out.

justgogirl2It is admirable when brands tackle real issues for women, no matter how sensitive. Alas JustGoGirl has arrived. Think maxipad meets thinner, slimmer, and shaped for thongs. At only 1.5 cm, which is just over ½ inch, it holds so much more liquid then your regular pad. It holds up to 140 ml, or just a little over ½ cup, of fluid which is the same as Regular incontinence pads, which are so bulky and feel like diapers. So the JustGo Pad is the best alternative that isn’t noticeable.

The founder, Brooke Solis, shared that the reason she designed the JustGo pad because, she herself, suffers from athletic incontinence. They have coined the term “Athletic Leaks” specifically for women who workout or train and experience incontinence. “Athletic Leaks™ are leaks that are 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. Athletic 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.”

You can order only order JustGo Pads through their website, as it is a monthly membership with options for 10, 20 or 30 pads a month. For more information, or to even request samples to test out, visit JustGoGirl.com.
