A 31-year-old member asked:
Can giving multiple births through a woman's life cause her bladder to weaken and for her to lose control?

YES MOST definitely!: Yes , the probelm is the angle of yorururethra has dropped so the pressure in the bladder is greater than the urthral sphincter, so u lose urine when u cough or sneeze, etc. The good news is with a proper workup u can have a monor surgical procedure to fix the problem as it will only get worse over time so see your gyn for a workup , 1 advantage to csection - does not cause this problem.
