Hi welcome back to Be Sexpositive, my
name is Marisol and I’ve got a confession to make, I had urine leak
after childbirth don’t forget to Subscribe for new videos every single
week. Urine leak or urine incontinence is a topic that is not really commonly
discussed but it’s more frequent that you might think. Having incontinence
problems can be devastating for some women it can affect your body image, your relationships or prevent you from exercising or having sex. Yes almost half
of all women experience your urinary incontinence after childbirth according
to the National Childbirth Trust in the UK. Unfortunately despite of incontinence
being something that many new moms suffer from it remains a taboo subject.
Their research found that the threat of women who develop urinary incontinence
after childbirth where embarrassed to discuss it with partners and almost half
of them who are uncomfortable talking about it with friends. Come on!
what it’s so embarrassing about admitting that you leak. Urinary incontinence is the
involuntary loss of urine, the most common form is the stress urinary
incontinence which is leaking urine because of physical exertion like doing
sports, coughing, laughing, or sneezing. The most common cause of pregnancy related
urinary incontinence is weak pelvic floor muscles, the increasing weights
of your baby following by giving birth might weaken this muscle, you’re more
likely to have stress incontinence if you had already problems with
controlling your bladder during pregnancy or for example if it took a
long time for you to push your baby out or you needed forceps it means that
you’re more likely to have problems with leaking like for example in my case. For
some the problem goes away within few weeks after giving birth, for others it
can continue for months or even become a long term problem. I’d like to give you
some tips that at least, helped me. Try to prepare for coughing or sneezing by tightening your pelvic floor muscles first. Drinking plenty of liquids especially water okay you might think it’s the opposite but what I found is that the less I
drunk the more I wanted to go to the toilet. Go to the toilet okay having a
baby especially a newborn means that you go to the toilet when you can and not
when you want so try to go to the toilet when you need to. I will also add a link
with some information and more recommendations on the description below.
