Weak pelvic floor causes exactly that bladder leakage. If you do the exercises then it will really help you. It happens to most women after having a baby due to weakened pelvic floor from childbirth. I had a total hysterectomy this year and was given a booklet on the pelvic floor exercises to do as I had the uterus removed via the vagina everything else laparoscopic.

You can see a womens health physio my stuff was private but I’ve previously seen one via the nhs if you talk to your gp about it.

The exercises will help the nhs even does a pelvic floor exercise app called squeezey it’s only for the the kegels exercises but once you have googled the exercises that will help you bht kegels are the main ones ladies are told to do.

I hope that helps xx

Does it I have pelvic pain too.. sometimes bladder pain ugh I hope it’s not painful bladder syndrome .. this all started after I lifted something heavy

Do you have a gynaecologist or gp you can talk to? I have endometriosis so I don’t know about other issues might be best to speak to your doctor or a gynaecologist so they can do some tests and diagnose if it’s something else that can be treated properly xx

I take vesicare tablets for overactive bladder and leakage. I still have to use pads for leakage but it is much less and I don't need to go to the bathroom multiple times. Hope you find something that will help you.

Thank you for that info .. will look into it :)

I had this problem very badly for several months. Had a Cystoscopy and had my bladder was stretched. I have a Rectocele which is a type of prolapse but of the bowel and not the bladder. Anyway I must tell you that all the uncontrollable weeing on standing that was very frightening for me stopped . Also recurrent UTIs have stopped after Prophylactic antibiotics too. So there may be a simple solution for you. I thought I would be incontinent for the rest of my life. It was a soon as I stood up I had to rush to the loo before I could do anything else ! Good Luck x

Wait so this happened to you after the cystoscope procedure? U had too pee when u stood up or number two ? Omg how scary how did they fix the problem for you ?

Acort89 in reply to CockeyMoor

I know I’ve had this issue for a few months too and it scares me because I get that sensation and it’s only on like my right side and it just feels not numb but it just feels weird so I’m like I don’t know if I’ve pulled a muscle or something but this whole thing when I walk and pee is not normal

Acort89 profile image
Acort89 in reply to CockeyMoor

So had this problem for several months ? Are u fully healed now ? How did u handle so hard months?

No it wasn’t caused by the Cystoscopy. I had the peeing on standing / urgency problem before the Cystoscopy. I had the Cystoscopy to find out why. I was also suffering recurrent UTI’s and getting blood in my pee too. I used to test my own urine with Multistix SG and it always showed high levels of Leucocytes showing underlying infections. Took me a while to get my GP to take any notice. I have had to go on antibiotics regularly for two years alternating every three months between Cefalexin and Nitrofurantion and that has helped with UTIs and needing the loo so much. Also in the Cystoscopy( bladder examination) they flushed out my bladder and stretched it . This immediately stopped the peeing incontinence. I have no No. 2 problems except constipation and the rectocele just becomes aggravated when I am constipated and presses on the bladder which can sometimes add to the urgency to nee a pee. Hope this isn’t too confusing.and hope it eases your mind your problem is probably not serious or permanent. It took me two years to get any help from any GP and I had to demand to see a Gynae/ Urologist on NHS who was amazing! I thought I had something seriously wrong and mine was forever too. I started with my symptoms in December 2018 so I guess Covid delayed my treatment. Had my Cystoscopy in March 2021 . Had my follow up 2 months late due to Covid so only started on antibiotics in August 2021. The Cystoscopy in 2021 really helped. Take care .

Omg that sounds like a headache! But with all of that are u better now? My anxiety has been thru the roof.. for me everything started when I lifted something heavy.. now when I walk I have to pee.. Ii mean how is that even possible … and I’m also leaking too.. I’ve noticed blood in my urine.. and my appetite has gone down hill.. I’m scared my thing might be permanent.. my pelvis area also hurts.. the urologist I’ve seen has said it’s not an oab I need to switch him because he sucks.. he ordered an mri so I’m waiting on that but I will be talking to my gp because Something is going on…

Acort89 in reply to CockeyMoor

Hello so thank you so much for your response so it took you almost 2 years like you said to get the proper care were you still having like those recurrent UTI symptoms in those two years before you got the proper care?

Acort89 profile image
Acort89 in reply to CockeyMoor

Question so the uto recurring symptoms you have was for two years ? I’m in between antibiotics and still experience the symptoms… it’s been 3 months for me.. I was referred to a pelvic physical therapist and she told me I have a rotted pelvis.. I’ll have to do physical therapy for 6 weeks but still feel the uti symptoms

I am totally better now. It was caused by having UTIs that got so bad the blood appeared. I think the heavy lifting is a red herring. You need a proper Uro/ Gynae specialist and you will get better.

Acort89 in reply to CockeyMoor

I hope so for me too.. I need to stay off google because it’s making me anxious.. yeah I’m getting referred to a new one .. I’m just scared u know nerve damage etc. But I mean tht has be some really bad trauma for it to happen.. how long was ur healing process.. ?

I had the Cystoscopy in March 2021 and got a lot of relief from the symptoms straight away . The Cystoscopy only takes about 30 mins under General Anaesthetic and recovery was about four hours after Anaesthetic . The liquid they use to stretch bladder just pours back out onto pads. Had to take it easy a few days and had to bend down slowly , not lift etc.. because it felt a bit sensitive. Not painful just knew I had to rest a bit to give bladder and urethra chance to get over the procedure.I really don’t think you have nerve damage from lifting. I have had two hernias from lifting but never got nerve damage of my bladder and I was 32 and 42 when I had hernia repairs and my bladder was fine until I was 56 so try not to worry.

Im just worried I won’t be able to walk again without having too pee..

Acort89 profile image
Acort89 in reply to CockeyMoor

Tu j u for Ur info Im confident it’s just temporary.. wow 2 hernias that’s crazy I’m glad no damage I mean for never damage I can imagine it has to be a big blow when u got the hernias did u have blood in ur urine ?

Only had blood in my urine when the UTIs were bad . The blood is not always visible to the naked eye so that is when the Multistix SG are useful because they show if you have traces. The hernias were caused by weak muscle walls after childbirth which then got bad after lifting / coughing but they never affected my bladder.

Hope you are seeing someone soon who can help.

Had the problem quite badly for about a year. Sorry late reply. Had a bereavement .

Acort89 profile image
Acort89 in reply to CockeyMoor

No problem thank u for replying are u fully recovered?

Absolutely , except if I get a UTI and it comes back whereby I can’t stand up or bend down without leakage . I use Multistix SG wee sticks to test my wee . Bought off the internet from the manufacturers . This always gives me a good idea if I have an infection looming and I am extra prepared to take extra antibiotics . GP is aware I double up my antibiotics as they directed me to when it happened again recently. Your’s will definitely resolve I believe. You probably have something called adverse neural tension which is creating all the other symptoms. The “ nerve” issues. A Physiotherapy friend explained that I was so frightened I was tensing muscles giving myself awful tingly feelings down my legs and shooting pains in my lower back etc... it wasn’t real. It was my reaction to the stress of worrying I was becoming incontinent( urine) . Try not to worry. I hope this helps .

Im so sorry for your loss my condolences to you and your family.. So I had the walking and peeing too it’s on my left side though where I feel it it’s weird.. did u experience something like that as well well? That’s what I have .. I’m also leaking Urine.. did ur uti situation cause you too leak? and omg yes the back pain and I’ve been sooo worried and stressed about it I’m not going to lie… my stress of me being incontinance have taken a toll but ur right u have too chill .. I recently got tested for a uti so it looks like my uti never cleared so on antiobiotics again for me too…

I feel like my bladder is full and it makes me pee it calms down when I sit.. it’s weird.. and my pelvis side hurts when I walk and that sensation when I walk.. I hope it’s goes away the first specialist tht saw me sucks so now going to another.. did u have that too where you’d feel like ur bladder is full ?

Hi,Sorry for the delay in my reply.

Yes my UTIs were recurrent for two years. Even since I went on Antibiotics prophylactically I still get problems if I don’t have access to a loo. I can go 90 mins now between visits to the loo which is a miracle. As soon as I get an infection starting I pounce on it by doubling my antibiotics but the incontinence problem returns. Definitely infection related. You need a culture of your urine to get the correct antibiotic. Hope you feel better soon ... you will get there x

Acort89 in reply to CockeyMoor

Thank you! Ir sucks because so far the antibiotics don’t seem to work.. do u know how long is it to wait to finish an antibiotic for an accurate culture test ? Because I know u can get a false positive or negative…

Acort89 profile image
Acort89 in reply to Acort89

I have that everytime I walk I have too pee.. I hope it’s not permanent… but the other thing a physical therapist and she said I have a rotated pelvis.. that my left side is not aligned so I’ll be doing pelvic therapy for 6 weeks I’m soo lost and confused

CockeyMoor in reply to Acort89

That is quite interesting because my hip / pelvis was put out of position by a car crash but although it went better it still clicks in my lower back.

CockeyMoor in reply to Acort89

Different antibiotics alhave different half lives so last in the body different lengths of time. You would probably need to be clear about 14 days before a culture test would be worthwhile .

Acort89 profile image
Acort89 in reply to CockeyMoor

Is that how long u had to wait when u felt that antibiotic didn’t work to re test ?

Acort89 profile image
Acort89 in reply to CockeyMoor

Sorry to bombard you w questions but the physical therapist examined me and said my issue w walking and having to pee is because of weak pelvic for muscles .. my left side of the pelvis is a little lower then the right I can even see it in the mirror… it’s crazy
