I can't hold it!


I have trouble holding pee in. I think I have weaker muscles, but I'm not sure. Normally I wet my self in school twice a year. It’s really embarrassing. HELP!

Hey babe! I’m sorry you’re having such difficulty with something that should be natural. The good thing is that muscles can get stronger. The muscles that support your uterus, bladder and bowels—and keep your urine in your bladder instead of on the floor—are called pelvic floor muscles. To make them stronger, you need to exercise them.

While there are specialists that can help you work through these issues, the basic exercise is discreet and easy: All you have to do is clench your muscles “down there,” like you would do when you really have to pee, and release. Breathe freely, contract your muscles, hold for five seconds, then release. Repeat a few times. You should try to work up to holding the contraction for 10 seconds, then resting for 10 seconds, and doing three sets of ten reps every day.

To make sure there isn’t a larger underlying issue, I highly recommend visiting your doctor.
