Bladder Tuck?

I forget what this is "officially" called. It came to mind again today because I'm sneezing a lot (allergies I think) and every time I sneeze I pee, even after I've just gone to the bathroom! My sister-in-law has had this procedure done and I've talked to my doctor about it and he said he didn't think my case was bad enough to have it done.

How bad is bad? It's soooooo annoying I've had 3 children (no more for us ) but didn't really notice it until after my third one. Anyway, I was just wondering if any of you have had it done after multiple births, if it helped any, and how bad was bad?

Going to put on a pad now

I'm sorry, I'm not a mommy, so I'm not sure about the issue as much, but I thought the first line of prevention for this was kegel exercises. Is that something you've tried consistently? I would just hate to get a surgery if there was something else I could do.

sorry you are having this problem. i feel so incredibly lucky that after 6 kids i don't have this problem.

Kegel exercises will help with moderate incontinence about 60% of the time; about 90% of mild cases are improved through simple Kegel exercises alone. it sounds like you have a weak pelvic floor (from pregnancy and birth). doing regular Kegel exercises should help you a lot; it will take some time, but they do work.

if you are constantly leaking urine or you feel the urge to use the bathroom way more frequently, your bladder may have prolapsed (cystocele)...it's pretty unlikely though. the non-surgical procedure for a prolapse is a pessary; it's a stint to put the bladder back in place. the bladder can also be surgically put back in place, but they don't do that unless the bladder has completely prolapsed and is visible from the outside.

do those Kegels first and see if you notice improvement. you can do them a lot and no one knows.

When I was pregnant I made sticker that said "kegel it" and put them on my work monitor and my steering wheel. I also tried to kegel at red lights. ha ha!

Thanks for the advice Stephanie, Shi and Ilovecaseyandcoach (I see your name a lot I just can't remember it right now I always forget about the kegels Remembering to do them (I'll have to do sticky notes too ) and getting a routine going is the key. I really only did them when I was pregnant and my youngest is now 7 Definetely not a prolapsed bladder that sounds like an awful experience It's just so irritating when my allergies act up or I have a sneezy cold because it's on a constant I need to get over it and exercising

ilovecaseyandcoach is Jasmin

anyway, sounds like Kegels will help you a lot; sticky notes are a great idea. i hope you get relief too from the colds and allergies; i have allergies and they're hate them.
