Urinary urgency

By February 3, 2013 - 3:03pm

If you experience urinary urgency or urge incontinence, check your diet for bladder irritants: coffee, alcohol, black/green tea, soda, seltzer, and red/blue food dye. Try eliminating one of your favorite irritants to see which one has the most impact. For example, if you can't imagine starting your day without a morning latte, substitute water for your afternoon seltzer.

Conscious breath work can help with urinary urgency by decreasing the fight or flight response that occurs with urgency. Practicing urge deferral helps - sitting quietly, performing a few pelvic floor muscle lifts, and breathing until the urge to urinate ceases. It helps!

Hi! I'm starting this group to create a community where we share advice and inspiring stories for people healing pelvic pain. Often there is shame and embarrassment around pelvic floor dysfunction and people think they will never get better. I'd like to see this group inspire those who are struggling and be a platform for people to share success stories. Thank you for your interest! Dustienne Miller, WCS, MPST, CYT PS- Let's be inspired by folks who have recovered from or are managing dysparenuia (painful sex), vulvar pain, interstitial cystitis, endometriosis, coccydynia, constipation, vaginismus, and chronic pelvic pain.
