  • It can be. I had a csection and I struggled with incontinence until my son was 10 months. You might go see your dr to just make sure things are where they're supposed to be. If you had a vaginal delivery, pushing makes your bladder muscles lax. For me it was pregnancy, seeing as I didnt push.

  • Unfortunately, it is a product of giving birth. You can strengthen the muscles via kegels, but chances are you will always have somewhat of this happen. (Word of caution... Do not jump on a trampoline)! LOL!

  • I am sorry, I meant pregnancy in general...

  • It wasn't permanent with me. You don't mention how long ago you gave birth. It might help if you did kegel exercises.

  • Things will get back to a new normal but nor for awhile. I wouldn't say that I will ever be back to before giving birth but it gets a lot better. Exercises help for sure.

  • Do more kegels!

  • I did for a few months after having both of my children. Kegal excersises are crucial to keeping the muscles down below, tightened :)

  • I have four children the youngest is four, after his birth I noticed this and I still have it. Ive been told its from pregnancy and it wont go away and some say it will either way just be careful
