Urinary Incontinence?

I have a hacking cough that leads to the dreaded "urinary incontinence". Anyone else experienced this? Have Keigels helped? I know it's totally normal, just looking for someone to commiserate with :)

lol I have the same problems... anytime I cough laugh or sneeze... really sucks but my doctor said to try the kegals and that may help but that alot of women have this problem and most of the time within a week after giving birth its gone if not sooner. I just cant stand it because when i start coughing my husband asks if he should go get me some diapers lol (he does it as a joke not in a mean way) the only thing i have came up with is to wear a pad if i know i will be out of the house for a while. just another joy of pregnancy.  (+ info)

urinary incontinence?

hi there, I sustained an injury 2 yrs ago and have CRPS in my right arm as a result of this injury I have been taking many medications over time and have had many new issues come to light (Depression, Panic attacks, Weight gain and more). I recently developed Urinary Retention and had to have a indwelling catheter inserted to help I had a leg bag for three days and have now a flip-flo valve and have to record all my urinary outputs. My question is what is a good result at this stage should I be urinating alot or immitating my past patterns what is my Doc looking for?? In anticipation thank-you very much for your time and advice everyone

sometimes when you have a catheter fitted, you can get infections which decrease the urine flow, the doctor is probably just checking to make sure this doesn't happen  (+ info)

Can you have urinary incontinence from being stressed out?

I'm 18. I've been stressed out a lot lately with my college classes, assignments, activities, work, etc.

I've noticed for the past two weeks that I've been experiencing a bit of urinary incontinence. However, today and yesterday when I've been relaxed, I haven't experienced any urinary incontinence.

So, I was just wondering if urinary incontinence can be caused by stress.
I don't have children. I've never had sex.

You should definitely talk to your doctor about it. You could have a rather sneaky infection of sorts.
If you have had children, that could very well be to blame.
I don't know for sure if stress would have an effect.  (+ info)

How do I stop urinary incontinence?

I have been suffering from urinary incontinence for the past several years. I have tried doing Kegel exercises over and over again and sometimes they do slow the symptoms down, but the problem still has not been solved. What can I do that will make the problem stop?
Note: For personal reasons, going to a doctor and having medical treatment are not options.

They make mens pant liners now days so if you piss yourself they take all the flood of water. Then when you get to the next bus shelter take your trousers and pants off and change the wet liner, putting the wet one in the bin to be recycled by the next unluckey pisser person.  (+ info)

Is urinary incontinence normal when someone is constipated?

And can being chronically constipated make the urinary incontinence permanent?
No trauma on my back. I just have chronic constipation.

No this would not make incontinence permanent. Find out what is causing it and get it treated. Get the constipation treated too.  (+ info)

Is daytime urinary incontinence common for children diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome?

Incontinence as in having two or more accidents every day?


I have a son in the Autism Spectrum as well, he wasn't 100% potty trained until he was almost 12.
Hang in there and best of luck.  (+ info)

Would you use a medical device that cures urinary incontinence and rehabilitates the pelvic floor.?

You would need to do daily exercises for a couple of weeks. These exercises would be monitored by a doctor to make sure that you were doing them correctly.

Most woen don't do the kegel exercises correctly or at all. This device measures daily activity.

Would you do this to end your incontinence?

it depends on what you mean by medical device...is it something you have to have surgically put in? if so will it last forever or will you have to have it replaced? or is it something you just use daily?
i would also consider how much of a problem your incontinence is. if it is something that really bothers you, then by all means do what you need to to fix it. if i was in your situation most likely i would want that problem cured, especially if you are young.  (+ info)

Does Cystoscopy cause urinary incontinence in women?

I may have Interstitial Cystitis. So, my urologist might do a cystoscopy. What does it feel like? Is there anyone out there with IC or painful bladder syndrome? I am VERY SCARED. Please advice. Will the dilation of the urethra in women cause damage resulting in urinary incontinence?

I don't believe this will cause incontinece. There may be some very minor dribbling right after the procedure, but that should be gone before you even leave the office.

You should talk this over with your doctor before the procedure. The doctor can explain each step, the associated risks, and what you will feel.

Good luck!  (+ info)

Does anyone know of any good incontinence urinary moisture alarms?

I am looking to find a incontinence moisture alarm, but I would like it to be very small, even maybe something that can fit in a pocket so no one can see it when I am out. I found one, but it is a lil bulky, does anyone have any of these or know where I can get one that is portable and small?

Call Walgreen's or another pharmacy.Ask the Pharmacist if they know of one.  (+ info)

What are some ways to solve urinary incontinence?

I am only 30 years old but I have had 5 children. I do Kegel exercises but it doesn't help much. This problem is embarassing when I sneeze, cough, or laugh too hard. It seems to have gotten worse since my last child was born. Any serious advice would be appreciated.

You may benefit from a trip to a physical therapist that specializes in women's health issues. That therapist can make certain that you're doing the Kegels correctly (many women think they're doing them right, but they're not.) Also, strengthening your abdomen and other pelvic floor muscles can help. (Just holding your belly in works part of the abdominal muscles.) Ask your doctor for a prescription for physcial therapy for pelvic floor dysfunction or urinary incontinence. Not all Physical Therapy places offer that kind of therapy, so make sure to ask; you need to find a place that works specifically with Women's Health.  (+ info)
