The purpose of retraining your bladder is to improve your bladder control and increase the amount of urine your bladder can hold without urgency or leakage of urine.
Keeping an accurate and thorough diary of your light urinary leakage will allow your doctor to gain insight into the severity of your condition and enable them to develop a bladder training program specifically for you.
Try to keep your diary for at least a week before you see your doctor, then take it with you to your appointment.
Based on the results of your bladder diary, your doctor or continence advisor have detailed insight into the severity of your light urinary leakage and be in a better position to develop a bladder training program that’s right for you.
(Note: Instead of measuring, you can count the time it takes to urinate. Ten seconds of constant urine flow is approximately 300 ml. Make sure to count evenly i.e. one 1000, two 1000, three 1000, etc.)
The next step is working out a bladder training program with your Doctor.
