    Default Catheter pulled out during delivery

    Just wondering if anyone's catheter was pulled out with balloon inflated during labour ? I'm wondering if it'll heal on its own. I'm 6 months PP and leak urine when I do certain things or have peed my pants a few times. Laughing. Walking. Really hoping it'll heal on its own or what's the alternative. Thanks !

    Have not had this happen, but have you spoken to a doctor about it?

    Also are you doing pelvic floor exercises?

    Have you seen a continence nurse or a women's physio who specializes in continence/pelvic floor damage? They will be able to assess you properly and figure out what treatment/strengthening exercises you need to do and teach you how to do them. You don't need to suffer with this hoping it will get better by itself there are people who can help you.

    Yes I have seen dr and am doing pelvic floor exercises which are maybe helping but I'm not even sure. I just assumed it was because the catheter was pulled out with ballon inflated. I didn't have any problems with leaking after my first was born. Dr said they look at surgery as an option after a year which I really don't want to have to I was just wondering if anyone had a similiar experience. Hoping it heals ! Thanks for an input

    A women's physio who specializes in these problems can actually test your pelvic floor and determine the problem to treat it. Also many people think they are doing pelvic floor exercises but if you haven't been taught how to do them properly it's really really easy to get it wrong (it's not about clenching up for example). This can all be measured and assessed and treated by a specialist physio. I've been several times during pregnancy and post (not for continence but pelvic injury) and it's definitely worth it.
