Does your bladder leak?

OK so here is my problem... I have always had a weak bladder the girl who hated staying the night anywhere because if I laughed I would more than likely pee. After 3 kids its worse now I laugh, cough, sneeze, get up from a low seat, almost any strain on my bladder does it. I have started to see a urioligist.. however you spell it. I have also always gotten UTI's at least 3 times a year. Its really bothering me now because im trying to loose weight and can't exercise without having to constantly change my (bladder pads).

  • you ca ngo to your ob and they ,ay could do this surgery that places a mesh "net" in there to pull your bladder back up. it's usually because of weakened vaginal muscles. GL

  • Go see a urologist. There is a simple outpatient procedure that can be done. My sister had it done and it made a HUGE difference for her.
