Can someone help me. I am very embarrased about this? (Possible treatments etc)
I have had minor bladder problems for a while. A bit of leakage when I am caught short but not too bad. My pelvic floor is in good shape. (To be honest, my bowels are my big problem and have taken over my “below the waist” concerns for a long time)
However, the other day I had a very bad / embarrasing incident. I was having “fun” in bed but when I climaxed I actually wet myself Not a lot and I was able to control the flow but defintely more than just a tiny amount. I nearly died with shame.
I was at the hospital today for my regular DMD and I thought that I would mention it to the Dr examining me or the nurse. However, for the first time ever the Doctor and the nurse today were men. It didn’t help that the doctor had a student with him who was also male (and so young too) I just couldn’t speak to them.
I can’t get hold of my MS nurse. My GP is also male and getting an apoointment with a female GP will literally take weeks .
My GP is lovely but he is the first person to admit that he is not expert on MS. What possible treatments are there for bladder problems like this? I can’t imagine that this is a problem that will just be confined to “special” ocassions.
I am terrified of having to use a catheter. I have heard people mention botox. What is this supposed to help with?
I promise that this is not a wind up or some sort of sick joke. I am terrified now.
