This is Dr. David
you need to get an ultrasound scan of your uterus to find out why you are having such heavy bleeding.
this could be coming from a uterine fibroid or something else going on in the uterus.
also if you have had children before, you can lose strengthen in the lower pelvis which can cause urine leakage.
you need to do kegel exercises.
have you done kegel exercises before?
I do not have any children. It was just that one time that I have had such extreme bleeding.
that extreme bleeding could be from you prior missed period.
missing a period can cause the lining to build up extra heavy
and your next period can be extra heavy.
I do have a sist on my ovary but it has been a couple of months since I have had any pain like I use to have when I am ovulating.
yes, ovarian cysts can cause quite a bit of pain during ovulation sometimes.
have you tried kegel exercises to help strengthen your pelvic muscles?
this can help control your urine better.
so you don't leak as easily when you cough or sneeze
this is called stress incontinence.
Yes, I have and it has gotten a lot better than it used to be. It feels to me that I am just "leaking" a bit more than usual when I'm supposed to have my period.
a uterine ultrasound can also check the bladder as well to check for bladder prolapse and bladder emptying issues.
Thank you for your advice.
