Exercise such as alternately tightening and relaxing the buttocks can help to regain control of the bladder and urethra. Another exercise that may be useful is to try and stop in midstream while actually urinating, and hold for couple of seconds before restarting to pass water. if done regularly this can be a great aid in tightening and strengthening the muscles of the bladder. Another approach is to employ hot and cold water applications to the lower abdomen and back. This can be via alternating hot/cold a compress around 3-4 minutes hot and1 minute cold repeated once or twice. A simpler method is to have a fairly warm bath. Followed by a short splash of cool water around the waist and bladder or else when finishing a shower turn the temperature down to cool and use on this area for a minute. These methods will help to stimulate pelvic circulation. Which in turn will encourage better muscular control.
