How to Handle Urinary Incontinence After Childbirth(图1)

Pregnancy is not an easy task for novice mothers; novice mothers experience a period of physical and psychological fluctuations during pregnancy. Some novice mothers report that urine leakage will be embarrassing in the late pregnancy, but the child is born. After that, the urine leakage disappeared. Do I still need to repair the pelvic floor muscles at this time?

The answer is that it must be repaired, but it is not necessarily a leaking solution.

Most pregnant mothers suffer from stress urinary incontinence. Under normal circumstances, our bladder detrusor contraction, bladder viscoelasticity, abdominal pressure, bladder-urethral outlet height difference, etc., provide the pressure to urinate and promote the discharge of urine, and the length of the urethra, the radius of the urethra, the shape of the urethra cavity, and the urethra Curvature, urethral sphincter and pelvic floor muscles work together to provide urethral resistance and prevent urine discharge.

Under normal circumstances, when people do not want to urinate, people will consciously control the contraction of the pelvic floor muscles and the external urethral sphincter to make the urethral resistance greater than the urination pressure and prevent the outflow of urine. During pregnancy, the continuous growth and development of the embryo will cause an increase in abdominal pressure, which compresses the bladder, and also causes pressure on the pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor muscles continue to be compressed, causing the pelvic floor muscles to relax and the urethra cannot be tightened. . When the pressure of urination increases with the decrease of urethral resistance, urine leakage is prone to occur during the third trimester of pregnancy.

After childbirth, a woman’s body will recover on its own. The abdominal pressure gradually returns to normal, the pressure on the bladder decreases, and the pressure on the pelvic floor muscles is relieved. Many mothers never have urine leakage during pregnancy, so there is no need to pay attention to the pelvic floor muscles?

In fact, postpartum is the best time to recover the pelvic floor muscles. The damage to the pelvic floor caused by pregnancy and childbirth already exists, or it can be said to be the difference between dominant and recessive. The dominant manifestation is obvious, such as leakage of urine, prolapse, bulging and other common postpartum problems, while recessive Not seen now, but the risk will always exist, like a time bomb.

Therefore, we must pay attention to the repair of the pelvic floor muscles after childbirth, pay attention to the training of the pelvic floor muscles, eliminate the risks as soon as possible, and pay attention to frequent inspections and maintenance to make the pelvic floor muscles healthier.
