Okay. I didn't want to post this, and I've been putting it off for a very long. My MFP buddies are going to read this and think, "Wow, that girl pisses her pants? Um...delete." Hahah but here I go...

So, every time I do something like jumping jacks, tuck-jumps, air-jacks, and general plyometrics, a little pee comes out. Okay, a lot. It's really annoying, very embarrassing, and beyond disgusting. My doctor did a bladder test and a pelvic ultrasound, and came up with the advice: do more kegels. So...I do. But it's not fixing me.

I try to pee as much as possible before working out, but there's always some left over for my workout apparently. Nice.

I'm not going to let up on the plyometrics because it's a KILLER workout, and it's included in every single Turbo Fire exercise (which is what I'm doing). But it would be really nice to not have this disgusting problem EVERY SINGLE TIME.

I'm 25. Never had kids.
Any advice, or should I just learn to enjoy the saturation? Ha ha..

Have you talked to a doctor? The only things I can think of are 1) Keegle (sp?) exercises and 2) medication for overactive bladder. You are too young for this! I have to go ALL the time, but still don't have this particular problem. You should not have to give up plyo and high intensity workouts at your age. Call a doc. smile

I guess just wear a feminine hygiene pad? continue doing your kegels, they might help after a long time of practice. no real idea how to make it stop completely though.

Same as they said, I'd suggest talking to a doctor/getting more advice on what to do.

In the mean time --- I'd wear a panty liner

I DO wear pads when I workout. Thick ones.
June 8, 2011 4:45 PM
She did call a doctor. Doctor gave almost the same answer as you, kegels.

Sorry, OP, my only advice is to find a new doctor!

Ha ha!! Lol!! Loved the title of this post!!! I suffer from the same damn thing! It sucks! As much as I wanted to join some kind of bootcamp, that little fact overruled! It's one thing to pee your pants at home but a whole other thing to pee your pants in public!!! I chalked mine up to having babies. And I know if I go to my doctor his answer will also be, "do more kegels" Sorry, that's not working! Big sigh...wish I had some kind of advice for you, but alas I don't, but, your not alone.

My mum just went to her gyno about this exact problem. Admittedly, she's 50 and had five pregnancies in the space of 7 years, so she wasn't in the best starting position.

Long story short, she's now seeing a pelvic floor physiotherapist a few times a week. She was doing her pelvic floor exercises completely wrong. Now that she's doing them properly, they think that once she loses about 15kg she should see some improvement. There is also surgery available, but that becomes ineffective if you lose weight after the surgery so she's trying to lose the weight first before going for the surgery option.

LOL, i just posted something similar to this last week....best advice: try to limit the water intake for 1 or 2 hours before workout...use a pantyliner and use a super duper tampon. check out my profile for previous post with lots of suggestions.
June 8, 2011 4:48 PM
I'm sorry to say that I do not have this problem so I don't really have any advice for you other than maybe wear a pad or something to absorb the...moisture. I just wanted to say good for you for sticking with your workouts especially with some less than desirable bumps in the road.

Stick with it and I hope things get better for you! :)

I have this problem sometimes, but I do have a kid, and I do need to do more kegels, BOOOOOO.
June 8, 2011 4:48 PM
I agree with wearing a panty liner. Ever since I had my son at 20 I have to wear panty liner because sometimes I "snish"... is what the mom i know call it lol "sneeze pissing" So I keep stock of panty liners. and been working on it.Talk to another doc for secondary advice. Then you can make your decision if you have to different opinions.

I would look into gettting a second opinion - if you already have this problem now, things are really gonna suck after you have children. I really would research and see if you have any other options.

Do you eat a lot of artificial sweeteners? I read somewhere that they are bladder irritants.

I had the same problem and was talked into surgery (TVT) Trans Vaginal Tape. Worst mistake ever. Didn't help at all, the recovery time was long and left me with scar tissue. I just wear a pad and make the best of it. I don't recommend the surgery. They told me after, even if effective, it's only good for about 7 years.
June 8, 2011 4:53 PM
I don't have as much pee coming out as you seem to, but I do get some sometimes (and I'm only 19, never been preggo either!). Either change your workout or wear a panty liner, plus get some therapy if you can, because this problem WILL NOT GO AWAY on its own.

Kegel/pelvic floor exercises do work but you do have to be doing them correctly and theyre for life. (I do at least 2 sets of 50 every day)

I'd request to see a gynae or urinary specialist, firstly to make sure you are doing them correctly and secondly to rule out other possible causes, irritable bladder being only one of them.

In the meantime look for some panty liners specifically designed for this problem...there are a fair few on the market
June 8, 2011 5:02 PM
I've had this issue my whole live! I'm 38 and no children. My mom had the same issue. Apparently it can be genetic:( Other than the panty liner, I really dont have any suggestions for you... But would love to hear some more here!!

Here is a very interesting interview about this same thing:

I don't know how accurate it is, but it was interesting.

I just blogged about this issue with me, I had figured out caffiene causes me to have stress incontinence, (exercise, sneezing, coughing) but I had quit caffiene, and been having a problem again the last couple weeks. I wondered if it was the sugar, cause I had been eating lots more sugar than normal, so I searched it... Heres one link... http://www.webmd.com/urinary-incontinence-oab/urinary-incontinence-diet-medications-chart

When I eat very healthy it completely goes away, but right now I'm not able to jump, run, or make any spontaneous movement, and even like going for a walk will do it. But I cutting out the sugar again, most of it of course, and will be back to normal. I have done the keigals, and I have gone to physical therepy for this, for me, it's what I'm eating and drinking.
