Can you describe your symptoms of Urinary Stress Incontinence?
I started to notice about a year ago when I was running that I had a urine leakage and also if I had been drinking a lot of water or if I sneezed I could feel that I had a leakage and that’s how it all started.
How long have you been suffering from your gynaecological issues and how did it effect your day to day life?
I have been suffering with my issues for about 1 year now and it has effected my daily life in that it was stressful, for example if I had to run for the tube, if I had been drinking a lot of water or coffee I could feel that I was leaking. If I wanted to play sports I couldn’t do that without wearing a pad.
