Here's a fun topic/question (ha!)...Following the (vaginal) birth of my two children (one in '05 and one in '08), I have found that it seems much more urgent whenever I feel the urge to use the restroom. My OB/GYN tells me I have poor vaginal floor muscle tone and has recommended kegels, but I feel like perhaps something more is called for (I'm terrible about doing kegels, though I do try). I'm not sure if my situation really counts as "incontinence" since I haven't had "accidents" at all, but it seems perhaps at the age of only 35 I'm well on my way at this rate. Any tips you have to remedy this situation would be greatly appreciated!
Another question: I live in NYC so when I saw that you are located here, I started to wonder if you are a) in the UnitedHealth network and if so, b) I need to check my plan to see if I'd need a referral for PT, but if I do, are there certain OB/GYNs who would refer me to you or whom you'd recommend? I'm looking for a new OB/GYN.
I had a baby about 8 weeks ago and have absolutely no bladder control. When I try to exercise my kegel muscle again, I really can't say that I even feel it. I am unable to stop urine from leaking out. Do you know how I can begin the healing process? I do not want to have issues forever. Thanks.
