I am so frustrated! I'm training for running my first 5K next month. I had to stop my run today because I was leaking urine so badly! My youngest is almost 3 so I'm not exactly postpartum. This hasn't been a problem recently but obviously I need to do some pelvic training. Does anyone have any hopeful/helpful suggestions?
I have the same problem and sometimes wear a pad but it can get uncomfortable if I'm leaking heavily. I discovered that if I use a tampon I don't leak at all - must have something to do with the muscles holding the tampon or it exerting pressure or something - I don't know. I'm not thrilled to use tampons when I don't even have my period, but until I can tighten my pelvic muscles enough it's a solution that works for me.
I went to physical therapy for urinary incontinence...I felt I was way too young to have this problem! I was really skeptical but it is so worth it! It really solved my problem, about 95% and I felt so much better! I just had a third baby, and plan to go back for a little tune up...hope this helps!
I just read this yesterday, you might find some helpful thoughts there. My problem with running right now is that even when I pee right before my run, I need to pee again a mile into it! I'm really hoping this goes away once I have the baby. :-)
I'm 9 months PP. I just started running about a month ago and yesterday I passed a port-o-john while on my run and I thought I should use it but didn't. Guess I should have b/c I ended up peeing my pants on the way home. I hope to look at the article GoGoGirl suggested but it's blocked at the computer I am using right now. Good to know about PT though!
