Re: Coital Incontinence

Dear Rozee3602,
As a woman's healthcare practitioner, I just wanted to encourage you to discuss this issue with your trusted healthcare provider. If your healthcare provider has problems discussing sexuality, you should consider either asking for a referral or another provider who is comfortable with the topic; however, all healthcare providers are supposed to be either well-versed in this aspect of whole healthcare or conscientious enough to admit their discomfort and assist you by suggesting a provider who is available to talk with you.

Secondly, I want to let you know that according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), more than 40% women with some form of incontinence also have an associated or possibly related sexual dysfunction. I understand that this topic can seem private; and it is! but your Provider is trained to keep your confidentiality safe. Your health is of upmost importance. The incontinence could indicate another underlying issue to be addressed. For your well-being, please take this issue to someone trained in women's healthcare.

Thirdly, as the comment from titanhog suggests, there is actually confusion among folks, even professional ones, about the source of the fluids that you believe are urine. A good healthcare provider will describe to you how to check to discover the source of the fluid. Essentially, there are over the counter strips that one can dip in the fluid stain to see if it contains urea/ammonia (this must be done soon after the release). If it does not show a reaction to urea or ammonia, the source of your fluid is from your Bartholin's glands and indicates a healthy body reaction to sexual stimulation.

I hope this helps!

Again, please, feel no hesitancy to take this issue to your regular healthcare provider or to a women's healthcare specialist!

Have a beautiful day
