The Doctors answer a question from audience member Nicole, who says she is suffering from urinary incontinence following the birth of her second child.
Nicole tells us she accidentally pees when she sneezes, jumps and runs. She has tried kegel exercises but says she is still experiencing the issue.
Urologist Dr. Aaron Spitz explains that kegel exercises can help some women who have mild to moderate incontinence, but for more severe cases the pelvic floor muscles need to be lifted back up into alignment in order to prevent unexpected urination. In Nicole's case, he feels a surgical method which he refers to as creating "a sling" with either her own tissue or mesh which is then placed under the urethra and cinched up to keep the urine in the bladder.
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry notes that in some cases pelvic floor physical therapy can teach people how to properly do exercises that keep your pelvic floor strong.
Dr. Spitz explains that for some people a change in diet, like avoiding tomatoes and spicy foods can also help with the incontinence.
