..finally took the plunge today and worked up the confidence to come to work padless. Will hit the gym on the way home as well with out! I've been going without of an evening when I get home and most of the weekends...soooo I figured it was time. I never really had a big problem with IC, still had those public accidents etc. Like Les I can't say I did the Kegals on a regular basis, just continued trying to get back to my normal routine on everyday life.
So far go good!! Keep those heads held high gentleman..not just anyone can do this!
