Urinary incontinence

So, I posted here a while ago about problems I had. They got much worse ater I had yet another infection. I had wet nights, I hardly ever made it to the toilet in time during the day and I peed when I coughed or sneezed.

So I finally went to the urologist. I am suffering from stress incontinence (after the birth) urge incontinence and nocturnal enuresis.

The bladder muscle is overactive and contracts when it shouldn't. the bladder pressure is too high prior to voiding.

I am on two meds now which calmed the detrusor down during the day and I have dry nights again. The meds are called Propiverine (for the urge incontinence) and desmopressin (for the nocturnal enuresis). For the stress incontinence I need to do exercises, all in all the condition is better now.

It had to because it was making me depressed and I felt totally worthless because I have been abused to the bladder weakness as a child.

Anyone else out there with similar symptoms?
