TMI: Bladder Control

Ever since having DD I have had problems in that area....if I laugh to hard or jump around or sneeze or even just sit down a weird way I tend to leak. Any one else have this issue? I know it is normal to have this problem but isn't it supposed to get better? All throughout my pregnancy I did kegels like they tell you too but it didnt help obviously.....So just wondering if I am alone here or not :)

Re: TMI: Bladder Control

  • Yup, me too! Kegals, Kegals, Kegals. And then more kegals! It will NOT get better on its own, you have to work to get back to where you used to be. It sucks when you first start doing them, but after a few days it gets much easier!

  • I ended up doing 6 months of pelvic floor PT after having DD.  Kegels are your friend.  Not to be too intrusive, but did you tear when you had your LO?  I only ask because most of the reason I was having issues had to do with scar tissue.  Once the physical therapist worked on my scar tissue, kegels became way more effective.

    Isn't this the creepiest thing?! I had to see one of these therapists to help with a low back issue I was having in my late 2nd-3rd trimester. Luckily they don't do anything "internal" for pregnant women. I don't know that I would have handled that very well.

    So glad that you had a great experience and that it helped you!

  • My physical therapist was amazing, so it wasn't awkward at all. I was really nervous about the whole deal before my first appointment, but it wasn't as creepy as I'd imagined it would be despite the amount of internal work I needed.

     I did not tear but was cut because she was sideways and stuck. I have never hear of PT for that sort of thing! Very interesting!

    I had 2nd degree tears when I had DS and my OB recommended doing Kegels to stregthen my pelvic floor.  My issue is having to go too often, like when I was pregnant. It's gotten better, but do those Kegel's.
