Why do I sometimes leak urine before I make it to the bathroom?

You are experiencing “urge incontinence”. The strong urge that you feel before you try to make it to the bathroom is the sensation of your bladder muscle contracting before you are ready. Urge incontinence is caused by an overactive bladder, and can lead to other problems, such as waking up and leaking in the night, and an increased risk of falling. Pelvic floor rehabilitation provided by a women’s health physical therapist is an effective and lasting treatment. Treatment includes strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles, techniques and strategies for bladder control, biofeedback, and other options. This physical therapy is provided individually and privately, and is covered by most insurance plans.

 Is it normal to leak urine after I had a baby?

A new mother may experience unintentional urine leakage for a few weeks after childbirth, however this should stop completely by 3 months postpartum. After that, leaking urine is NEVER normal. Research proves that the first treatment for this problem should be pelvic floor rehabilitation provided by a women’s health physical therapist. Treatment includes strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles, techniques and strategies for bladder control, biofeedback, and other options. After having a baby, many women perform pelvic floor muscle exercises (known as Kegel exercises) incorrectly but do not realize it. If you have tried these exercises but they don’t seem to be working, then an assessment by a women’s health physical therapist will identify the most effective rehabilitation treatments for you.
