Sleep hygiene for bladder symptoms

Sleep Hygiene for Your Bladder

Women with over active bladder may empty their bladder multiple times at night which can be very disruptive to sleep. To minimize night time voiding:

  • Empty your bladder before sleeping
  • Limit the amount of fluid you drink after dinner.
  • At night, decrease the number of hours of sleep so that you can sleep your maximum number of hours continuously. For example, if you currently sleep for 9 hours and wake up to void three times, try sleeping 7 hours. The deeper sleep for 7 hours may help you only get up once or twice, thus improving the quality of your sleep.
