  Incontinence - Relief

What can I do?

- Practice pelvic floor muscle exercises. Tighten the muscles of your vagina as though you were stopping a flow of urine. Count to eight. Repeat in sets of 10 throughout the day.

- If you have to go to the toilet a lot during the night, cut out drinking before bedtime. But drink a lot during the day.

- Try rocking backwards and forwards when you are on the toilet. This lessens the pressure of the womb on the bladder so that you can empty it properly. You won't need to pass water quite as often if you do this.
