Living Fearlessly with the Unexpected Leak
Incontinence doesn’t have to hold you back from living life to the fullest. Follow these tips for reducing urine leakages in women to get back to doing the things you love with confidence.
Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water per day to keep your bladder functioning properly.
Tomato-based and spicy foods, as well as citrus fruits and chocolate can irritate your bladder. Check out our recipe page for healthy meal ideas that won’t cause irritation.
Do Without Diuretics
Beverages like alcohol and coffee (or other caffeinated drinks) are diuretics that contribute to frequent urination and leakage. Instead, choose healthier options for your bladder, such as water or cranberry juice.
Limit leaks by drinking liquids at intervals of 2 to 3 hours rather than all at once. You can also reduce the need to go at night by not drinking anything 2 hours before bedtime.
Kegel or pelvic floor exercises can reduce urine leakage in just 2 to 4 months and may eliminate them within a year*. Learn how.
Keep Your Balance
Forcing yourself to urinate just in case you might experience urine leakage or holding it too long are equally hard on your bladder.
Don’t strain or hover to urinate. If you have to go, take a seat, instead.
Change is Good
Be sure to change incontinence products 2 to 3 times a day. If you feel that you need to change more frequently to keep pace with your incontinence, consider products with a higher level of absorbency.
Keep a Positive Outlook
Reducing your incontinence doesn’t happen overnight in most cases. A positive attitude can give your motivation a boost to make the changes that keep you on the path to living life to the fullest.
