I have seen this topic touched on, or similar things, mentioned when I've looked it up elsewhere but never quite what I experience. I wonder if anyone else finds the same thing as I do.
Passing urine is presumably linked to opening our bowels as when we go to the toilet for 'number 2' we normally empty our bladder at the same time.
If I'm having to 'hold on' when I badly need to go number 2, or sometimes just before I feel the need to go, I sometimes wet (not everything but substantial) with no warning even if I didn't feel I had a full bladder.
But more weirdly, after I've been to the toilet and emptied my bowels and bladder, and tried to be sure I've emptied my bladder well, more often than not a very short time afterwards I will either wet with no warning, or feel a very urgent need to pee which frequently is so urgent that I wet before I can get to a toilet. It can happen just a couple of minutes after I've emptied my bowels or it can be up to about 20 minutes later. It can be just a very little or it can be a lot although it's always extremely urgent.
Does this happen to anyone else?
It has happened for a long time. I can remember it happening fairly often when I was a teenager before the rest of my bladder incontinence had started, although I was a bit more able to control the urge then though only partially and with great difficulty. It would be a question of literally crossing my legs tight and holding still til I could rush back to the toilet and usually by the time I'd got there I was damp. I started carring spare pants and sanitary towels to college with me because of it. Then shortly after the regular leaking started.
I am not bowel incontinent though as a child until a late age I did have trouble holding on to full bowels. I'm not sure if or how that's connected.
