    thank you miss michelle,this video helps me with my bladder.

  9. Hi, I'm 17 and I've been suffering from an uncontrollable balder for a while now. I've never been pregnant (because every one says that's were you can get an uncontrollable bladder from) and I'm starting to think I'm born with it. Every time I laugh or cough I end up wetting myself. But it's not normal right? It's not like it all comes out at once, it comes out small flows at a time… It so embarrassing. No one notices because I always end up hiding it or changing clothes all of a sudden and have to make up a stupid reason. This happens almost every day. Any pressure on my bladder I pee. Only really resonantly I looked up what this could be and it said I had stress incontinence. And it said I could cure this by doing Kegel exercises. I started doing them but it's not seeming to work. I don't know if I'm doing it right. What do you think is wrong with my bladder? Thanks x
