OMG!!! I'm tired of doing this!!!

I am tired of peeing myself everytime I sneeze or cough! I have had bronchitis for the last 3 weeks and everytime I sneeze or cough...there I go. This started after I had my son..which was a c-section..almost 5 years ago but its worse now. There is a surgery that can be done...does anybody know what its called...or if they've even had it, does it work? Thanks..

  • Kegel exercises will actually help a lot. I didn't know there was surgery for it actually.

  • My mom had the surgery, and said "YES! Amen, was it ever worth it!" She had 2 c-sections, and just had the surgery about 4 month ago. I asked because after my last c-section, I started having problems with the whole sneeze and pee thing too. lol I have great muscle control by the way, I have been doing kegels for about 20 years. Doesn't do a THING for the sneeze/pee for me. :)

  • I use poise pads myself. There is a surgery that can be done, but it can only be done one or 2 times in your lifetime. I would prefer to deal with the pads honestly.

  • Only 1?! I vaginally birthed 5 babies, 2 of them over 9 lbs, and I dang near pee myself just yelling at them sometimes! I agree with the others, Kegels! (They'll help your sex life too!).
