I wet myself when I cough, laugh, sneeze , run or vomit. Last week I was out to lunch and we were really laughing. I felt a dribble, next thing it was as though my waters had broke. Please help I can not control this.:o

  • You need to see the doc as is could be the start of a prolapse, pelvic floor exercises can help - meanwhile wear tena ladies for protection

  • Dawn, I too had urinary incontinence after the births of both my children. I am an acupuncturist, and acupuncture is extremely helpful for this. Urinary incontinence is usually due to weak Kidneys, and is often tied with weakness in the Lungs. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs have helped me so I no longer have this problem and can sneeze/cough without incident. Kegels are very helpful as well. Of course, you should NEVER hold your urine, but urinate frequently. You should get a urinalysis done and check for any abnormalities. But Western medicine doesn't help this problem effectively, in my opinion. Best wishesDOM
