Leakage when Hearing Running Water?

Do you leak urine when hearing running water? Whether it be the shower water or faucet, you have to run to the bathroom? Or can you not even hold it?

You may have urge urinary incontinence.

Urge urinary incontinence means that there is a sudden urge to urinate (due to a trigger), that leads to urinary leakage.

Here are 3 tips to decrease your symptoms when hearing running water!

  • Perform 10 deep belly breaths to help relax the bladder muscles. The idea is you are trying to tell the bladder muscle to relax, NOT contract! Bladder muscle contraction is associated with leakage.

  • Perform 10 quick pelvic floor contractions. The idea is that you are trying to close off the urethra and support the bladder.

  • Place pressure on your perineum. Your perineum is located between your vagina and anus.

Let me know if any of these tips work!
