    HI,

    You sound too young to undergo surgery for this & suggest you try pelvic floor exercises on a daily basis. A good Physiotherapist can tell you how to do them or 'google it'.

    I've been doing them for years after the birth of my son & they have helped, however am now going to have the surgery as am in my 40's & it's getting worse.

    Worth a try but to see any results takes weeks not days!

    Good luck.

      Hi there!

      Stress incontinence is so common in young women, and women in general, that researchers have found a number of ways to treat it. There are tons of holistic options like kegels, have you heard of kegels? It's a training exercise to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, and while your exercising no one can even notice! Here's a simple guide on to how to practice kegels - http://ss1.us/a/20lt6cmG. The reason I mention kegels so much is because so many women have seen significant improvement in their SUI after doing them. Some have even seen the urinary incontinence symptoms disappear, but that's not a gurantee. It is a possibility though, and it seems like your urinary incontinence is relatively light. You may benefit from a light absorbent pad in the meantime while you are looking for treatments. There are a ton of holistic treatments available for stress incontinence, I'll give you this link to another basic guide for other treatments - http://ss1.us/a/RUnh9fMR. A lot of people benefit from simple diet change and certain behavioral modifications.

      In any case, don't be afraid to speak out! SUI is sooo common in women. Almost every woman experiences urinary incontinence at one point in their life. You should talk to a doctor though in case your SUI is a symptom of something more serious.

      Hope this helps and good luck!
