its not severe but embarrising,please let me know,can i control with meds!
There are some you could try. Most of them are indicated for overactive bladder, urge incontinence and frequency. Enablex (darifenacin hydrobromide), Urispas (flavoxate hydrochloride), Ditropan XL (oxybutynin chloride), VESIcare (solifenacin succinate), and Detrol LA (tolterodine tartrate) are the names of some that your healthcare professional can try. The benefit may be limited because what you describe is stress incontinence, as far as the leaks when you cough or sneeze, but they may help some. These meds can definitely help with some of the spasm. Make sure you are tested to rule out any bladder infection. Some women can have a UTI with no symptoms other than incontinence. Another thing that might help with stress incontinence, if you haven't already tried, is Kegal exercises. They will strengthen those muscles down there making it easier for you to hold back the urine. Kegals are done by squeezing the muscles down there like you are stopping a stream of urine. Squeeze, squeeze for as long as you can several times a day working up to longer times. You will be surprised how much this can help. Some women who start doing Kegals find they don't need medications to hold their bladder. It is an embarrasing problem, but it is a VERY common problem for women, especially after childbearing. It is embarrasing but don't be afraid to have a talk with your healthcare professional about it. Hope this helps some.
