Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
the first thing is to rule out any persistent bladder infection
Antibiotic course will help in that case.
The next possibility is the stress or urge incontinence.
This can be due to the either sphincter relaxation or inappropriate bladder contractions.v
I have had three course of antibiotics and it doesn't resolve the issue
This can be checked by the urodynamic studies by a urologist.
Then you have the second possibility the mixed urinary incontinence.
This can develop from the weakening of the bladder sphincter and also inappropriate contractions of the bladder.
This can be corrected by the Pelvic floor exercises.
you can google that term for visual demonstration.
The next option is to use bladder specific medication.
Oxybutynine is a commonly used medication with lot of success.
5 to 10 mg daily should be adequate.
I do kegel exercises
avoid caffeine, alcohol, and high sugar containig foods
also please get checked for diabetes.
but I have never had a child
high blood sugar can cause this problem sometimes as another cause.
even without child you can have bladder dusfunction.
and lastly this is uncommon but should be taken into consideration.
rule out any bladder tumor or polyps.
that can interfere with bladder function as well.
Cystoscopy is considered for that .
I have PCOS
Oxybutynine is your next step if all else is fine.
PCOS should not be the problem here
Okay thank you! So when I see my doctor what should I ask.. they keep proscribing anti-biotics
and it's not helping
feeling very fustrated
ask for Oxybutynine 5 mg
available in long acting form
works 24 hours
and then you should see a urologist as well.
okay great thank you so much for your help!
