Holding It Back

6 months ago

This is my first post and I appreciate any help.

Doctors have told me to strengthen muscles by holding back my urine when I get an urge. They said when I am wetting myself to try and stop it.

I think this is causing problems. 1, I think my body has learned to ignore my attempts to stop the stream and just pushes through. 2, I am worried my muscles will be harmed by fighting so hard.

Any advice?
