Can't control my bladder when I cough, Laugh, jump etc.

Its so annoying when I step out with my friends I have to wear a pad because we know we laugh and crack up but underneath it all I'm so embarrased for the things I hide. I am 28yrs old and this happend after I had my little girl. Has this happen to any of you...if so what do you recommend I do? Thanks for your time.

Re: Can't control my bladder when I cough, Laugh, jump etc.

It's not unusual after childbirth. The simplest thing to try is some Kegel exercises, to tighten up the pelvic floor muscles that are all stretched out. If that fails, there are some medical options, also.

Re: Can't control my bladder when I cough, Laugh, jump etc.

I sympathise with you, i really do!!! I have had this problem since I was little, and mines not because of childbirth, we don't know what it is!!! But alot of women have this problem after they give birth, for some, it doesn't go away. The exercises are good and work for alot of people, but for some they don't work or dont work well enough. Incase they don't work for you, pads are about the most convenient way to control this. There are some REALLY good ones out these days for people with this proble, they're so thin and discrete. Its really nothing to be ashamed of!!!

I agree that it's very normal after having kids. Do your Kegels and you'll soon see a difference.
