Luce Brett is the charming and hilarious author of the book PMSL: Or How I Literally Pissed Myself Laughing and Survived the Last Taboo to Tell the Tale. She started writing about women’s health, bodies, and taboo after the birth of her second baby. Like many women born in an analog age, her sex and body education was a combined effort – she learned about her nether regions from magazines, other peoples’ big sisters, and Tampax leaflets. Luce hopes to draw attention to the unspoken, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking reality of continence problems and that it will help other women, and men, everywhere, who are leaky and feel alone like she did.
Today we’re talking about another topic for the first time on the show – urinary incontinence. In this episode, Luce shares everything you need to know about this medical problem that is much more prevalent than we might think – in fact, it affects one in three women! Luce also talks about how her births contributed to her incontinence, the mental and emotional toll of this condition, the problems it creates in intimate relationships, how she’s been able to address it through various modalities, and so much more!
