    • The same thing used to happen to me so I told my Dr. he sent me to a specialist who told me I needed surgery to lift and repair my bladder...I had the surgery and Im soooo glad I did. No more ” accidents ” when I cough, sneeze or laugh.

    • I would also recommend seeing your doctor.. Having your bladder repaired is the best solution.

    • I have a different option to try before having surgery. I read an article about incontinence in peri menopausal and post menopausal women. One thing that the article said is, if our midsection has gotten larger and we don’t hold in those muscles while we carry ourselves with good posture, the sphincter muscle that controls urination can weaken. It recommended standing straight, holding in the muscles, and strength exercises.

      Less invasive than surgery and worth a try.

    • I agree with trying the more natural approach first. Start doing kegel exercises- you can find instructions online. Good luck!

    • I recently saw my gynecologist who suggested doing a test in the office to evaluate how much urine your bladder can hold..if it proves to be a problem, then she can perform a  procedure where a sling is introduced into the bladder through the vagina and solves the problem..something to think about.
