OK, I don't know whether this is because of the d&c or just because I got bronchitis after the surgery, but it's driving me crazy. When I get into coughing fits from the bronchitis, it's causing minor incontinence!! I'm so embarrassed! :blush: :blink: :blush: Is this a result of the d&c or just because the d&c was so recent (3.5 weeks ago)? I mean, am I stuck with this or as I heal will it go away? I'm not very good at kegels, so that's not helping much. Anyone with similar experiences or any knowledge - please help!

Hmmm...I'm not sure. If I cough really hard when I have to urinate that will happen to me too. Since it just started after the d and c I'd at least go in and mention it to the dr. See what he/she says. Ugh the pangs of being women huh?

Thanks. If it's still going on after vacation, I'll call it in. Till then, keeping my legs crossed for improvement! :blush: :D

Gosh golly...our bodies sure do odd things, don't they!?! I would ask the dr as well. My best friend developed the same thing after she had her first baby. She has the weakest bladder control and I feel for her, but for her it was a heireditary thing in that all of the women in her family developed that same thing after their 1st baby.

Perhaps it's just related to the bronchitis. I get the same thing when I have coughing fits (I'm asthmatic and cough when I have an attack). Oh...and don't feel embarassed by asking anything. We're here to support each other and can completely relate! ;)

Me, too - asthma plus d&c surgery equals bronchitis. Fun, fun. I'm really hoping it will stop as my bronchitis improves. I didn't have this problem after DS was born, so hopefully it's only temporary.

Thanks ladies!

I believe it has to do with the D&C. They put a catheter into your urethra after they put you under anesthesia and I think that is what makes it weaker. It gets better over time. Just wait until you have your babies............and I know you will.........

Stress incontinance is truly the worst. I still cant hold anything back and I had my son nearly 3 weeks ago.
