Instructions For Controlling Urinary Urge
When you experience an urge to urinate:
First Stop and stand very still. Sit down if you can or stand quietly. Do not move; try to stay very still to maintain control.
Second Quickly squeeze and let go of your pelvic floor muscles 5 to 6 times to keep from leaking. Use moderate to maximal effort for the exercise. This sends a message to the bladder to relax and hold urine. Try to distract yourself by thinking of something other than going to the bathroom.
Third Relax. Take a deep belly or diaphragmatic breath and let it out slowly. Try to make the urge to urinate go away by continuing with distraction techniques and positive thoughts.
Finally If the urge returns, repeat the above steps to regain control. When you feel the urge subside somewhat, walk normally to the bathroom. Do not rush. Continue to do your quick flicks to relax the bladder. You can urinate once the urge has subsided.
