Urine leakage can be a normal part of your physical changes when pregnant. Not to worry, it’s normal. Here’s why it happens and how you can help it.
Although it might be surprising, it’s completely natural to have urine leakage during your pregnancy.
Incontinence during pregnancy happens to most expectant moms. That’s because the growing uterus is putting pressure on your bladder.
Pee a little when you laugh? Or cough? Or sneeze? If you’re experiencing some leakage, it’s most likely “stress incontinence,” which means it’s triggered by laughter, coughing, sneezing — or basically anything that causes your bladder a slight strain.
One of the keys to minimizing stress incontinence/urine leakage is to practice pelvic floor exercises.
Just make sure you’re prepared for it by using a product like Always Discreet.
Most occurrences of incontinence during pregnancy will fade once the baby arrives, but if it doesn't, mention it to your doctor at a post-natal check-up.
