Fennel is a plant that has diuretic properties.

It may seem contradictory to consume this ingredient as it helps contain urine. However, the truth is that it makes it much easier to empty your bladder completely every time you go to the bathroom.

Thus, it makes it more difficult for urine to escape from your bladder and it will take longer to fill up again.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of fennel seeds (20 g)
  • 1 cup water (250 ml)

Method

  • Heat the water and, when it comes to boil,  add the fennel seeds.
  • Leave the mixture to infuse 10 minutes and then strain it.
  • Wait until it cools down before consuming it and take it once a day.

Raspberry leaf infusion

Warm water exercises

Strengthening your muscles is another key to improving urinary incontinence.

What you should do

  • To do this, fill a bidet with warm water and sit down. If you don’t have a bidet, use any other appliance that you can fill with water and sit down in. Begin to contract all the muscles of your genital region for five seconds, and repeat this exercise.
  • Rest for about ten seconds and then contract your muscles again.
  • Repeat this exercise in the water for a total of 10 times.

You will notice how your muscles will gain strength little by little. You’ll also notice that you won’t have as many urinary leakages as before or they may be less pronounced, which will help you gain confidence.

Exercises that can help you

Some exercises, such as lying on your back with your knees bent and feet slightly apart, will allow you to contract the rectum, urethra, and in the case of women, also the vagina.

Keep the area tight and slowly count to three.

Continue with this simple gesture, slowly releasing the tension exerted on the muscles and repeat this process between five and ten times.

This is an exercise that goes hand-in-hand with steady, comfortable breathing and that prevents you from tightening your stomach, thigh or buttock muscles instead.

Check your abdomen with your hand to make sure your stomach area is relaxed and that you’re not pushing in the wrong zone.
