Urinary incontinence or the loss of bladder control affects 1 and 3 women globally, and can be a frustrating problem for millions of people. Affecting daily activities from work, to exercise and social activities, incontinence happens anywhere, anytime. The three main types of incontinence  that people suffer from are Stress, Urge and Overactive bladder. These all cause bladder leakage to occur unexpectedly, and emotional stress. The difference between you and them, you’ll know how to treat it reading this article.

So how to manage incontinence? With mild incontinence, manage the amount of liquids you are drinking by staying away from caffeine like coffee, tea and sodas. These types of drinks can cause people to need more trips to the bathroom. Because Stress incontinence comes from a weak pelvic floor, Kegel exercises can improve strength. By squeezing these muscles for 10 seconds, three to four sets a day this can improve bladder control and the flow of urine.

Keeping your pelvic floor muscles strong is one of the best ways to avoid incontinence or light bladder leaks. It is recommended that all women practice Kegel exercises throughout life to maintain strength and prevent weakness through the pelvic floor, particularly once they discover they are pregnant. Keeping a strong pelvic floor throughout the pressures of pregnancy and birth will almost always lead to a better outcome afterward and avoid the post birth effects.

The first exercise is a long hold for strength. This can be done when you’re either sitting, standing, lying on your back with your knees and legs apart, or kneeling on your hands and knees. Tighten your pelvic floor muscles as strongly as possible and hold for 3-5 seconds. Repeat this up to 10 times resting for a few seconds between each squeeze. Try to do three sets a day. The second exercise is a quick squeeze for power. Squeeze and lift your pelvic floor muscles as strongly as possible. Do not hold on, squeeze and let go. Rest for a few seconds between each squeeze. Repeat 10-20 times, and do this exercise one to three times a day.
