what causes a leaky bladder


Posted by emleeyaya

I have jsut began to experience a leaky bladder and this is driving me crazy.  What causes it and do polycystic ovaries have any relation to what is happening?

The most common cause is loss of muscle tone in the pelvic floor.  Strengthening your pelvic muscles with physical therapy (via biofeedback and kegels) is usually very successful in treating that.  The muscles get stretched from childbirth or other things and need to be strengthened.  Start there, and see what happens!
