Urge Suppression

When a woman has a strong urge to void, rushing to the bathroom can result in urine leakage. This is because the bladder contracts as you try to make it to the bathroom before urinating. To train the body out of this pattern, we recommend performing a kegel maneuver and relaxing. Begin the kegel maneuver when you experience a strong sense of urgency. Allow for the urge to void to subside as the bladder relaxes with the kegel. Then, when the urge to void has passed, calmly walk to the restroom and void.
