Same here! Those exercises make a difference though. I jumped on a trampoline with my best friend's kids a few weeks ago and really did pee myself! It's just a fact of life that unfortunately hit me at 21!

Yup, pee! You are not alone ;)

KEGALS!!!! Ben wa balls are AWESOME too!! You can actually get them at any sex store or magazine. They are balls that you use your muscles to hold in, which MAKES you do kegals. You can use them while you vaccum or anything! Also, I would get it check to see if it IS in fact urine. Could be sweat or vaginal discharge. Your GYN should be able to tell you how they can test it.


This! I have a vaginal discharge sometimes when I'm working out hard. There is nothing that can be done except wait for my husband's return in June lol I am also a heavy sweater in that area as well so make sure its not just that.

It could also just be sweat, i know when i work out hard that i sweat all over and sometimes below. I have very good bladder control after having to children.

You tatas dangle and you cooch leaks. Mine isn't that bad but id say if yours is that bad just wear a pad when you exercise. and keigles. Keigles have made mine less dramatic.


Oh my gosh I am crackin' up over here. LOL

I think most women have some "issue" with this....pee or "juice" or whatever. It happens to the best of us. :)

You wanna laugh?? Anyone get there work out on and then get extremely "gassy"? Yeah, embarrassing. LOL

That may be what yours is, but mine is most definitely urine....

well if its a clearish thicker stuff thats not pee or thats some pretty funky pee


I am 35 years old; I know the difference between urine and vaginal discharge. I could reach into myself and touch my cervix and tell you about how many days I have until ovulation too... .I know my body. I pee when I sneeze, laugh, or exercise. I have clear watery discharge when it is not ovulation time. Egg white discharge during ovulation.

You'll get there one day.... it took me a while.

I noticed that my issues with bladder control (4 kids) got a lot better when I switched from pads to a menstrual cup. I guess the constant pressure of having it in while I was menstruating kept me flexing those muscles. You could also get some Smartballs (made by Fun Factory and available at places like Babeland/Eden Fantasys and other adult online stores). They're these silicone balls that you can wear, during exercise even, that would remind you to flex those muscles. It creates some resistance.

I was gonna say this too :) Mine is definitely not eggwhite discharge. I did notice though that it didn't happen the last time I had my period and was wearing a tampon. That's why I'm kind of confused if it's pee, a tampon shouldn't stop it. Or maybe I just wasn't working out as hard at that time. I have no clue! Gonna go stock up on pads since I work out every day.

Seriously, a tampon will stop you from peeing! Here...let me quote some info for you.....

Vaginal Devices. Devices that support the vaginal wall also help support the urethra that is located next to it:

Tampons. Mild stress incontinence in women, particularly when induced by exercise, may be managed by using a tampon. Specially designed tampons (e.g., Contrelle Continence Tampon) are available, but even simple menstrual tampons may be helpful. As tampons push on the vaginal wall, it compresses the urethra. The following are some considerations about using tampons: covering tampons with K-Y jelly helps prevent the cotton fibers from sticking. Tampons can only be worn for short periods. In one study, 86% of women with mild incontinence remained continent during exercise sessions when using tampons. Out of this group, however, only 29% with severe incontinence remained dry.

I had the same problem. I had a bladder sling procedure done and haven't had the problem since. I did kegals like crazy, but they didn't help much. I would ask your primary physicians to recommend a urogynecologist for you to see.

If it is urine (I know you said you smelled it but if you are drinking tons of water a small leak of urine won't smell really) it's stress incontinence. I actually looked it up because I have the same issue when I work out. I usually have to pause my dvd at least twice to pee, and it's nothing but a tiny dribble becuase I always go right before I work out and I was confused why I couldn't hold this tiny dribble of pee in lol. Like everyone else said, keigels (probably spelled that wrong) will help eventually just have to do them frequently.


I could have written this myself.....exactly what I go through!

What's so wrong about this for me is I DON'T have kiddos and I have to deal with stress incontinence. Jumping moves are the worst! Ah well.....things could be worse (life is always in perspective since I'm a hospice nurse!).

Yep.... HUGE problem for me! My mom had bladder lifts done twice so I figure I'm headed down the same road. I haven't had surgery yet but desperately need it. I have to wear pads to Zumba and forget ever jumping on a trampoline.
May 5, 2011 7:02 PM
After one especially nerve racking run when I just KNEW everyone had noticed I wet myself. Of course the gym was packed so I couldn't leave the treadmill to run to the potty. And to make it worse I was on the men's side! I've been wearing pads ever since. I'm glad you posted something on it. I thought I was broken. lol

i'm not a mom so i'm not supposed to read this but i'm a woman so i am :) I've never had kids, like i said, and that always happens to me too. And what's a kegel?
May 5, 2011 7:28 PM
I feel your pain because I'm the same way. I have 3 children and I've had this problem since my first. I just make sure I use the bathroom immediately before I start working out and always wear a pantyliner.
May 5, 2011 7:34 PM
Yep, sounds like stress incontinence. The kind of exercising you're doing is just a bit more than your muscles down there can handle right now. I've had it off and on since having kids (and it's worse now that I'm preg again ... ugh, at first I thought fluids were leaking!)

Kegle exercises are the best option (and loosing weight will help too).

Some of it is almost certainly sweat, though, too. Make sure your undies and workout pants are breathable to help reduce that.
May 5, 2011 7:42 PM
Btw I also limit fluids before Zumba. I've told my Zumba friends if I ever pass out in there I'm likely dehydrated!
May 5, 2011 7:48 PM
I have also had this happen. Not all the time but sometimes when I sneezed or exercised. I tried kegals with no results. I did however have to have a hystorectomy last April and when doing it the doctor preformed a bladder sling. The whole thing was done vaginally with no incisions at all. They said I should take it easy afterward. I went for a short walk the day I came home from the hospital and was doing everything by 4 weeks. Probably would have sooner but they said I shouldn't be lifting alot. I would highly recommend haveing that done if it is a problem.

One word: Kegels. wink

It happens to the best of us. I am nodding to so many of the posts in here. Exercise is only one of the things that can trigger this 'loveliness'. embarassed

You are not alone and even with kegels it happens. I didn't have the best luck with liners honestly. best of wishes to you. drinker

I had no idea that pressing the vaginal wall would potentially limit this... my neighbor has this and she said she would have to wear a tampon when she went for a run (super fit mom of two who makes me jealous daily) and I didn't get it.. what, like wear a tampon in your undies? YUCK! LOL, but we got to talking about all of it because I have it too, if I'm kageling during exercise I can't concentrate on the exercise, and kageling during exercise rarely helps me anyway... I will have to try the tampon thing, because I'm not up for surgery atm.. My incredibly hot 40 something neighbor did have it this winter though and she said it worked, 100% improvement... (even more jealous)
