Re: Incontinence After Stroke

Yes, this is quite common. There are different reasons why you may develop continence problems after a stroke. For example, as with any serious illness or accident, if you are not fully conscious or aware of your surroundings, you can wet or soil yourself unknowingly. It is possible that your stroke...

Re: incontinence during pregnancy

This is not an uncommon situation and is due to the additional weight that the baby places on your pelvic floor compromising it's ability to support everything. It is actually a form of stress incontinence but will most likely resolve after you complete your pregnancy. Some women will find that preg...

Re: Unable to hold back

The urgency and difficulties holding on that you are experiencing may be due to overactive bladder. I've given a reply to one of the other questions about how this can be managed. Try the link below:

Re: problems when laughing and coughing

It sounds like you might have stress urinary incontinence. This is a very common bladder problem for women. The pelvic floor supports the bladder and urethra (urine outlet). If this area gets stretched, weakened or damaged, then stress urinary incontinence can happen. Pregnancy and childbirth can ca...

Re: Too young to be incontinent

Such problems can occur at any age for a variety of reasons. I would suggest that you see your GP and he/she could refer you on to a Urologist for further investigations if needed. There's no need to be embarrassed, these sort of problems are far more common than you think and can very often be effe...

Re: overactive bladder

Yes, many people with overactive bladder have purchased RADAR keys. I believe that the Bladder and Bowel community even provide a complimentary one with their home delivery service. There are also 'just can't wait' cards available.

Re: Urge Incontinence

It sounds like you might have an overactive bladder with incontience. Filling in a bladder diary where you measure how much you drink and how much urine you pass on a few days may help clarify this. The good news is that it can be managed in a variety of ways including: • Lifestyle Changes • Medicat...

Re: Leakage

Hi. It depends on what bowel problems you've got but the short answer is yes they may well be related as bladder and bowel problems often are. In particular, problems with the pelvic floor or with the nervous system can affect both. They are also anatomically close to each other so often symptoms fr...

Re: Prolapse bladder

I'm sorry to hear about your problems. Clearly there are few things going on here: urine leaks, prolapse and frequent UTIs. To a certain extent they may be related to each other but equally they may not. You really need a thorough assessment of your symptoms, an examination of your prolapse and prob...
