After sitting for an hour, I arose and urine came pouring out of me. This happens every time I get up from sitting down or lying down. What can help?

Before lying down or sitting for an extended period of time, it helps to use the bathroom first, and put pelvic floor strengthening exercises into your daily routine. There are many possible factors that contribute to Light Bladder Leakage (LBL). For example, certain medications, hormonal shifts, or a weakened pelvic floor can make LBL worse. Even a simple change in position can put enough pressure on the bladder to cause leakage. It’s important to check with your medical professional or a pelvic floor physical therapist for advice specific to your body.
