A 38-year-old member asked:

I'm constantly leaking urine, are there bladder control pills or should I wear adult diapers?

4 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Sheila Goodman
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Pills may help: There are basically 3 different types of urine leakage: stress, urge and overflow. They cause leaking with different situations and are treated very differently. Urge incontinence will respond to medication, the other 2 types won't. Both stress and urge may get better with physical therapy.

Not usually: Botulinum toxins are used to temporarily relax muscles-particularly the ones that cause eye and face twitches; neck spasm; TMJ & even migraine headaches, plus cosmetic uses for facial, neck and chest muscles and excess sweating of the armpits, hands and feet. Btx has been used off-label for relaxing the anal sphincter for patients with spasm from hemorrhoids and fissures though.

Can a bladder infection in a woman lead to a man getting prostatitis, or the reverse?

Not as a rule: Though the types of bacteria that cause utis in women and prostatitis in men are similar, this is generally not possible. However, some men will develop prostate infections related to stis like chlamydia or gonorrhea, and vice versa for women who might have urethral infections. Safer sex practices and regular STI testing is always important.

What remedy is good for a bladder infection other than drinking water, and cranberry juice.?

Dr. Moez Khorsandi

Antibiotics: If doing all of the above fails, then antibiotics are warranted to prevent the infection from getting worse and spreading to the kidneys or blood stream. Untreated urinary tract infections can become very serious especially if the person has other medical conditions such as diabetes.

Antibiots after getting a urine culture. Drinking water and cranberry juice should be ancillaries.

Agree with above; if you have active UTI need antibiotic treatment. If you are trying to prevent (prophylaxis) additional UTIs given a history of having recurrent UTI, but do not currently have a UTI, then cranberry pill extract (OTC) is worth a try or a low dose antibiotic (i.e. macrodantin) can be prescribed by your urologist after discussing the risks and benefits.
