A technique that can strengthen the pelvis and bladder muscles is the use of weighted cones. You insert the tampon-shaped cone into the vagina and hold it there by contracting your pelvic muscles.
As you do this exercise and these muscles strengthen, the weight of the cone is gradually increased. This will improve your ability to hold urine until you get to a bathroom.
Other behavioral tips for preventing urge incontinence include;
· going to the bathroom on a regular basis, especially before physical activity,
· avoid drinking caffeine or a lot of fluids before activities,
· not drinking any fluids right before you go to bed,
· avoiding lifting heavy objects,
· losing weight.
