Bladder Control Quiz – Is This Happening to You?

August 2016

Bladder control issues are not a normal part of aging and they are not something you have to just live with. Take control of your pelvic health by completing this short quiz to find out if it’s time for you to reach out for help:

1. Are you using the bathroom so often it disrupts your day?
  □Yes □No
   
2. Do you find yourself making a mental note of where all the bathrooms are when you enter a building?
  □Yes □No
   
3. Do you find it hard to make it to the bathroom, maybe even having an accident sometimes?
□Yes □No
   
4. Are you using pads or other forms of protection to absorb bladder leakage?
□Yes □No
   
5. Are you worried that you will leak will sneezing, coughing, lifting heavy objects or even laughing?
□Yes □No
   
6. Have tampons become too uncomfortable to use or do they fall out?
  □Yes □No
   
7. Are you experiencing pressure or bulging in your vagina, especially after standing for long periods?
  □Yes □No
   
8. Has your urine stream become weak or turned into a spray?
  □Yes □No



If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, we encourage you to talk with one of our GYN doctors about your symptoms.

Do-it-yourself remedies
• Change Your Habits: Behavioral changes like quitting smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly and avoiding heavy lifting are all daily adjustments you can make that can help prevent or even help treat bladder control problems.

• Do Kegel Exercises: Kegel exercises strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. If you do Kegel exercises regularly, you may reduce your risk of urinary incontinence and similar problems.

Our GYN office can help
Although urinary incontinence can be uncomfortable to talk about, we assure you that as GYN doctors for many decades combined, we have seen and heard it all. We encourage you to be comfortable talking with us about this issue so we can help you.
