One of the best ways to treat it is with pelvic floor exercises.

How to do pelvic floor exercises

You can feel your pelvic floor muscles if you try to stop the flow of urine when you go to the toilet.

To strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, sit comfortably and squeeze the muscles 10-15 times in a row. Avoid holding your breath, or tightening your stomach, buttock, or thigh, muscles, at the same time.

When you get used to doing pelvic floor exercises, you can try holding each squeeze for a few seconds. Every week, you can add more squeezes, but be careful not to overdo it, and always have a rest in between sets of squeezes.

After a few months, you should start to notice the results. Your incontinence should improve, as well as the sensitivity you experience during sex. You should carry on doing the exercises, even when you notice them starting to work.


NHS Direct gives you more information here : http://www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk/articles/article.aspx?articleid=1063

Its nothing to be ashamed of. Just one of lifes annoyances.

I am a bit nervous but I have decided to post this rather embarrassing topic as so many women suffer from the problem and are too embarrassed to talk about it. Even if others on this forum don't want to admit to suffering from it, at least they will know they are not alone. You can always pm me if you want to chat about it, and maybe offer me advice!

I have been suffering from stress incontinence since my recent gynae op three weeks ago! :(  According to the GP the op didn't cause the incontinence and is a coincidence!

This form of bladder incontinence is mostly suffered by women, usually those who have children. The more children, the more likely you are to suffer from it apparently. Mine has come out of a clear blue sky, having always had good bladder control heretofore, so I am rather distressed to put it mildly, even though on the scale of things I don't suffer as badly as some other women. I was talking to an elderly relative last night, and was shocked to learn that not only has she had it for a number of years, it is bad enough to require adult nappies! Only her husband knew of her condition, she hadn't confided it to her family as she is too embarrassed!

My GP is referring me to a specialist and surgery might be needed.


Ok, first, its not coincidence that this has started in the wake of your gynae op, though I don't know what op you had but most gynae surgery comes with some slight risk of damage to the bladder/ureathra and that should have been explained to you.  

Although I did not have the same problem for the first few years after my hysterectomy, I have recently noticed that sneezing or coughing can be... problematic. Like you, I began doing daily pelvic floor excercises when I was carrying my eldest and have never stopped, so your pf muscles should be strong, but have probably under gone some stress during the surgery. Keep doing them. This is important, since whatever the problem is, the stronger your pf muscles are, the better you will be able to recover from it.  Don't take any nonsense from the male consultants. They'd tell you the moon was made of blue cheese if they thought it would stop you nagging them!

There are.. some other suggestions, depending on the op you had, but I would pm to you if they were likely to be of any use.

I think your a top lady for posting this subject, and good on you.  It happens, and there's nothing to feel embarrassed about.

blessings!

It can be a horribly embarrassing condition and if it's really bad can be assisted by surgery so don't suffer in silence.

Good idea to empty as often as possible just in case of an unexpected sneeze or cough.  You've gotta larf.  :shock:  :lol:

Tena ladies and similar things are a bit better than everyday pantie liners.

The op was for a bartholin's cyst which has become infected, so the bladder isn't likely have been interfered with, but it does seem a bit of a coincidence all the same! :(  I hope it won't be long before I get an appointment with the consultant.


The infection of the cyst might have caused a Urinary Tract Infection which could explain the incontinence. I take it you have been prescribed antibiotics to clear up the infection?

As a side note, you may already know, but Cranberry juice is very good for urinary tracts!

Both excellent points Lou. Also, no caffeine and limit your dairy intake.

Blessings Roses.
