what are the bags called that are used for urinary incontinence?


Foley Bag??
Catheter Bag??  (+ info)

could daily sex be the possible reason of urinary incontinence?


It is possible, but it's more likely that the two are unrelated. Believe it or not, urinary incontinence is very common among women of all ages, even if no one ever talks about it. Most recent studies have suggested that 15-25% of women under the age of 30 have regular incontinence. Pelvic trauma, such as during vaginal delivery, can predispose to incontinence, but frequent sex has never been proven to be a risk factor. I don't mean to embarrass you, but you didn't mention if you're talking about yourself, and you haven't mentioned whether you (or whoever you're referring to) has other risk factors for incontinence. You also didn't mention what type of incontinence it is/when leakage occurs. That information will be important, because treatment will vary. Talk to your doctor! The good news is that most cases of incontinence can be cured. Please feel free to e-mail me if you'd like any specific information.  (+ info)

Urinary incontinence at a young age?


This has never happened before up until just recently when I began to leak a small amount of urine while sneezing or intense coughing. I am a 26 year old female. Is this normal or should I see a doctor?
----------

Often times, this is due to weak pelvic floor muscles; and you can use the "Kegel" exercises to strengthen them.

This won't be something you have to live with as long as you can get help for it now. See your doctor, use the Kegel exercises, and you should be okay.

Kegelmaster for postpartum urinary incontinence?


I'm wondering if anybody has tried this and/or if it works....I'm definitely interested in it as we're ttc #2 and i had severe incontinence for 6 months after my 1st. Any knowledge would be great. Thanks
----------

From what I heard Kegel exercises help a lot, I have not heard specifically about Kegelmaster, but you might try first to exercise without paying for the Kegelmaster (I have no idea how much they charge). It seems a much cheaper way and does work

Please help, I don't know what to do!? Is this urinary incontinence?


I'm only a teenager, and it feels like I'm wetting myself. My pants smell of wee and I'm panicking like crazy, I used to think I had some kind of infection but now I don't. It's making me miserable and I don't know what to do, I'm reallly scared about telling my mum. I heard there is some kind of disease called Urinary incontinence, is this what I have??

Thanks please help.
----------

You might have a form of urinary incontinence. It actually could be caused by a urinary tract infection, maybe not, but it's possible to have an infection without symptoms.

What you really need is an evaluation by a doctor, who might send you to a specialist. There are multiple things that could cause the symptom you are describing, and you'll need a professional to sort through the details.

In the meantime, you might want to consider wearing maxi pads, or if it's enough urine, wearing an adult diaper. I know no one your age wants to wear one of those, but if you are smelling of urine, this might be a better temporary solution.

good luck!  (+ info)

Any solution to Urinary Incontinence?


How to cope with Urinary Incontinence?
Is there any natural way of overcoming it? I feel like i have to p*** every half hour even if i dont drink water.
It is so embarrassing when i go on Road trips with friends
----------

Herbal remedies include urinary cleanse, cranberry, and water to flush the system. Though your best bet is to see your doc and rule out any serious problem. There's lots of meds available today to help with this. It's more common than you'd think.

I have stress urinary incontinence. What can I do?


Im 16 and i pee when I laugh. Not all the time. Idk why, but sometimes I do. I know its something that might've gone through, but I want to know how to stop it. Help
----------

Hmmm, you're so young for SUI and you say it doesn't happen all the time?
Maybe it's more of an immature bladder...do you let your bladder get too full before you empty? Maybe try to go more frequently.
As someone else said, keep your weight in the normal range.
And you're not too young to start doing kegel exercises. Here's a link with a description of how to do them.

is urinary incontinence common at 29?


i have been told i have incontinence :( i am so so so upset . both urge and stress incontinence . i am on anti depressants so the stress incontinence is related to that i think. please i need advice

Yes, and I have it as well. Ask your doctor, they have many things they can do for incontinence. For me, I simply wear maxi pads or Poise Pads. But there is surgery that they can do on you, if you really want to, ask them about it.  (+ info)
