7 Tips For Managing Bladder Control Problems #sponsored #Depend

I am participating in a Vibrant Influencer Network campaign for Depend. I am receiving a fee for posting; however, the opinions expressed in this post are my own. I am in no way affiliated with Depend and do not earn a commission or percent of sales.

Millions of Americans have bladder control issues, also known as urinary incontinence. The condition can affect anyone – not just older people. Bladder control issues can also affect young people, particularly woman who have given birth or men who have been treated for prostate cancer.

Check out these videos of real people who have bladder control problems, for various reasons.

I know for a few weeks after I gave birth (both times), I had to wear a maxi pad every day until I got full bladder control back.  Now that I’m getting older and have a chronic cough, there are times when I cough so hard that I leak ( a little or a lot depending on how full I am).  Following are some tips I have learned for managing bladder control problems:

  • Practice Kegels – Kegel exercises are especially helpful for women with mild symptoms, according to WebMD.  Kegels are done by tightening and releasing the pelvic floor muscles (the muscles that help you start and stop your urine stream).
  • Keep a pee schedule – You may not always feel like you have to pee, but if you pee at the same times every day, whether you need it or not, it will help keep your bladder empty.
  • Once you’re done peeing, wait a minute, then see if you need to pee some more.  Another trick I learned when I was pregnant (which also works if you’re carrying a little excess weight) is to lift up your belly and see if that helps your bladder release some more urine.
  • Don’t drink any caffeine after 5 p.m. and try to cut back on the caffeine you already consume.
  • Drink plenty of water (at least 64 ounces) but don’t overdo it.
  • Talk to your doctor to see if there is any medical or medicine-related reason that could be causing your incontinence.
  • Use a product made specifically for bladder control problems.
