Slight incontinence day time only, usually when moving around. No bed time wetting. Scans reveal no cause. Not overweight. Not pregnant or had s baby.
As you state the leakages seem to occur when your daughter moves around, this sounds like she could be struggling with stress incontinence. Could you ask your daughter if she leaks when pressure is put on the bladder, such as during exercise or lifting?
Does your daughter smoke or have a chronic cough? Smoking causes a persistent cough, which can lead to leakages over time. Similarly, if your daughter is doing heavy weights regularly, the pressure that is put on the bladder can gradually cause incontinence and weaken the muscles.
Often, hormone deficiency can cause incontinence, which a Doctor can diagnose and help her with. It is important your daughter visits a Doctor to establish whether there are any underlying health conditions, such as Diabetes or a nerve disorder. Although it seems embarrassing, Doctors hear about this on a regular basis.
Could you please ask your daughter about her symptoms to find out which type of incontinence she is experiencing? I can then suggest some potential causes.
Thank you so much for your response, very helpful. I will wait to have further conversations and get back in touch. She has already had, urodynamics testing, CT urogram, frequency volume chart…all ‘normal’. We have not investigated hormone, diabetes or nerve disorder. We are certain it is urine but not completely sure whether it is leaking from the urethra or vagina, tests indicate that all is normal but there has been an indication that it may lessen during a period when tampons are worn.
Ok, let me know how you get on with this. Don’t hesitate to ask for any advice in the meantime.
