After having 2 children I started to notice that I couldn't run or sneeze without leaking urine. I visited my local doctor and was referred to the continence clinic.
I got an appointment really quickly and was diagnosed with a grade 3 prolapse. After only 3 sessions of physio over 4 months, I have started running to keep fit and feel really confident.
The doctor I saw was amazing and made me feel really comfortable as it is never pleasant dealing with "women's troubles". It was just a case of learning how to do the exercises correctly and sticking to a daily routine. It taught me that you don't have to live with bladder incontinence, you can do something about it! (with a little help from a good doctor).
