So I have an issue and I'm worried that it might take more than kegel exercises to fix it. Though I'll admit, I haven't been doing kegel exercises very often. I'm not currently pregnant, my children are 6 and 4. When I sit on the toilet and urinate, after I am finished, I tense up my pelvic floor muscles and push with my abdominal muscles at the same time and I am able to expel quite a bit more urine. So even when I think I am done urinating, I do this and there is always more hiding in there. In the past few months, I have had a couple of bouts with food poisoning/stomach flu. And when I vomit I urinate uncontrollably! Just the other night, I had just finished urinating when I got the urge to throw up. And as I vomited so much more urine came out, and I had honestly just finished. So I literally have to vomit with a towel under me now because I expel so much urine. I'm wondering why there is so much urine left in my bladder after I finish going to the bathroom and why can I make it come out when I tense my pelvic floor muscles and push? And is this really something that I can fix with Kegels or could it be something more serious? My grandmother had to have surgery to fix her bladder issues a few years ago and I'm afraid I'm heading in that same direction. Oh, I don't normally urninate when I sneeze, but I do when I'm jumping, like when I play volleyball or take a zumba dance class. But it's normally only a little bit then.
Thanks so much!
