Spring a Leak?
How many times have you laughed with your girlfriends about a little dribble since having your kids? Although it's common to experience a little leaking after having a baby,during menopause, or exercising, it's not normal.
Types of Leaking:
Stress Urinary Incontinence: Involuntary loss of urine with increases in intraabdominal pressure, such as running, laughing, coughing, sexual intercourse, walking, hiking, etc.
Urge Urinary Incontinence: Involuntary loss of urine, small amounts or entire bladder, with a strong urge to urinate. This is usually set off by triggers such as cold weather, running water, key in the door, pulling into the driveway, or even seeing a toilet.
Mixed incontinence: A combination of stress and urge leaking.
Nocturnal Enuresis: Leaking urine at night while sleeping.
Small little leaks or your whole bladder, don't loose faith in yourself. Instead, learn how to take control of your body again in a safe space designed to nurture your unique lady bits.
What if I pee during an exam or procedure?
