Hello all,  

This is not a topic many would want to discuss, but I'm hoping to find some answers here.  I would like to know if anyone else has experienced urine leaking (drips) during letdown.  I have been having some issues with leaking, but it happens most often while nursing, during letdown.  It also happens during random letdowns while not nursing.  I feel like this makes sense, but I can't find much on this issue.  I'm being evaluated for urge/stress IC, and have a bladder prolapse (grade 2 or 3) and have some serious decisions to make - but we are still nursing happily at 14 months.  I could only find one other post on another message board linking breastfeeding to leaking anecdotally.


Thanks for any info you have to share.

I would bet it's more tied to your delivery than it is to breastfeeding.  Were there complications during your delivery?

Yes, there were.  Del. #2 was long and difficult and resulted in 4th degree tear.  I noticed the prolapse right after.  

We are trying to figure how much of this is caused by the prolapse and how much might be urge incontinence (and perhaps that is set off by the letdown).  The choices are medication after I'm finished nursing or surgery.
