Urine

Dear Doc
Not sure if this is for you or Fitness Doc. However I started gym 3 weeks ago and doing ok. My problem is I am overweight and diabetic. According to a Dietician I should loose +- 15kg. The gym is very effective and I love it so very much. I want to do more aerobics as I feel this is where I can loose a kilo or two, however every time it''s jumping time I can feel my urine coming out. Only a few drops, but after a while I can''t continue coz it doesn''t stop. I “ pinch”  like no ones business. Now I urinate every time I feel I need to. Before I start, even if there''s nothing, I still go in case something comes up. Please let me know how I can overcome this problem. BTW I am 37 years old female.

Hallo Liesel
You probably have a bit of stress incontinence. See http://www.womens-health-concern.org/help/factsheets/fs_femaleincontinence.html
You can try doing some pelvic exercises, but if you don't see any improvement, you can see an urologist as sometimes a small operation is needed.

In the mean time, buy some incontinence pads at the pharmacy and use this while you exercise.
