Female Bladder Problem

One of the best things that you can do when you have a female bladder problem is to learn all that you can about it and how to help yourself deal with it or get rid of it. You need to do some research to find out what you need to know. Having a female bladder problem can be embarrassing. However, it doesn’t have to stop you from living a full life. Information is power when it comes to any kind of problem.

What is a bladder problem? This is when you have sudden urge to go to the bathroom and you are leaking urine and having frequent urination urges. These are all forms of what is known as a urinary incontinence. What this means is that you have a lack of bladder control. There are many things that can cause this. However, the most common cause is a gradual weakening of the pelvic nerves. There are a couple of different kinds of incontinence.

Stress incontinence is when there is a weakening of the pelvic floor, which will result in pressure (or stress) on a bladder that was fully functional before. You can be laughing, sneezing, coughing and the next thing you know your underwear is wet. This happens with greater regularity in women after menopause.

Urge incontinence or overactive bladder also known as OAB is a sudden, uncontrollable need to go to the bathroom. It doesn’t matter how long ago it was that you last went. It could have been just 15 minutes ago. It is caused by the uncontrolled contractions of the bladder muscle also known as the detrusor. This occurs when the communication between the bladder and the brain is not right. This type of bladder problem happens because of inflammation of the bladder lining, infection, and injury, natural atrophy (this happens as you get older) and other reasons.

Sometimes you can have a combination of the two above bladder problem types, which is then considered to be a mixed incontinence.

Overflow incontinence is when you can’t get rid of all of the urine that is in your bladder due to a muscle tone that is weak or there is some type of blockage. The symptoms for this can include dribbling, urgency, hesitancy, straining, a weak urine stream or low urine production even though you feel like your bladder is full. This problem is more common in men but it can happen in women.

The first step you will need to take when you have some type of bladder problem is to seek the advice of your physician. If your problem stems from a bladder infection then he will prescribe an antibiotic. Bladder infections will rarely go away on its own and can lead to more serious problems with the urethra, bladder, and the kidneys. Your physician will also need to rule out any more serious problems prior to starting any type of home remedy.

Adult Bladder Control Problem

Did you know that there is an exercise that anyone can do to help with adult bladder control problem? It is called the Kegel exercises.

Most women have heard of these exercises, especially if you have had a baby. Most doctors will tell a pregnant woman that they need to do this prior to giving birth because it helps to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. For those of you who have not heard of these exercises let me tell you what they are and how they can help you with your bladder control problem.

The pelvic floor muscles help support the urethra, bladder, vagina, penis, uterus and rectum. These are used when you urinate or have a bowel movement. When you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles it will help lessen and even possibly prevent leaking of urine from the bladder.

Let me tell you how you want to do the Kegel exercises:

One: Determine which muscle that needs to be exercised. You can tell which muscles to use by squeezing the muscles in your genital area by pretending that you are trying to stop the flow of urine. Get a feeling where this muscle is and how it feels when it is being exercised.

Two: You want to tighten these muscles and hold them for about four seconds and then relax. You want to repeat this process for about 10 or 20 times. Between each contraction of the muscles you want to make sure that you allow the muscles to relax completely. After you get the hang of it you will be able to contract the muscle for four seconds and then completely relax for four seconds.

Three: You want to make sure that you do the Kegel exercises 10 times a day. This is important because if you do fewer than this number you will be lowering the effectiveness of the exercises.

Four: The great thing about Kegel exercises is that you can do them anywhere and no one will even know you are doing them. For example, you can do them at work, in your car, while you are washing dishes or even watching television. It doesn’t matter where you do them as long as you do them every day.

Five: You don’t want to do these exercises while you are urinating.

Some people will see a positive change after doing Kegel exercises for just a few weeks. However, most people will not notice a major improvement until they have been doing the daily exercise for 3 to 6 months. It is important for you to do these exercises every day even if you don’t feel a difference. They will help keep your pelvic muscles strong and will over time help to strengthen them even more. Kegel exercises really do help with an adult bladder control problem. Try it for yourself and see the positive results you can obtain.

In summary, an adult bladder control problem is definitely something serious that needs to be taken care of by a health professional before you try any time of home remedy. There is a well-known exercise that can help to prevent further problems or even stop a bladder control problem.
