Using leakproof bladder control underwear is definitely the best option when you are unable to control your bladder. Sometimes we go to the bathroom too many times a day because we feel we have
no power over our urge to pee. Other times we are unable to control our bladders when we cough, sneeze, laugh uncontrollably, or exercise. These panties will keep you protected and safe and may be washed and reused. Only difference between these panties and your usual underwear is the extra layers of protection in the crotch.
The normal number of times to urinate during a 24-hour period is 6 to 7 times. Four to 10 times during a 24-hour period can also be normal if the person is healthy and doesn’t mind so many trips to the bathroom. During the night while sleeping, two thirds of men and 70% of women go to the bathroom at least one time. As you become older you may end up going more frequently. Trips to the bathroom sometimes are just a habit one becomes used to and can attempt to break.
Doctors recommend retraining your bladder if you have bladder control problems This basically means regaining control over your urination habits thru behavioral therapy. Bladder control training gradually teaches you to hold your urine for longer periods of time to prevent leaks or desperately needing to run to the bathroom. In the meantime you can wear UltiUndies, the safe, comfortable, bladder control underwear.
Follow these step-by-step techniques for retraining your bladder:
1 – For a few days keep track of the times you need to urinate.
2 – Calculate the hours in between every time you need to urinate.
3 – Choose an interval … whether it’s every 4 hours, 5 hours, or whichever is comfortable for you.
4 – Hold your urine back for 5-10 minutes longer each time.
5 – Keep increasing the time between intervals.
6- Wear your bladder control underwear!
Proper diet and Kegel exercises also help train your bladder. Stay away from carbonated and caffeinated beverages, chocolate, alcoholic beverages, sports drinks, and acidic and spicy foods. Do Kegel exercises regularly and strengthen your pelvic muscles. Tighten your pelvic floor muscles and hold for 3 to 5 seconds, then release. Do ten repetitions each time, ideally three times a day.
At night, stop drinking fluids two hours before bedtime. Go to the bathroom before getting into bed. These two steps will definitely help with your bladder control.
I wish you success with your bladder retraining. It should take between 6 to 12 weeks to reach your goal. Don’t give up. Many times it’s a matter of just breaking your peeing habit.
