LBL and Pregnancy

With pregnancy comes all kinds of body changes. One not so fun surprise could be LBL (light bladder leakage). Robert A. Starr, MD from Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI sheds some light on LBL during and after pregnancy.

“It’s very common. There are things that can be done about it. And it demands open communication,” said Dr. Starr.   “We are getting better as physicians, nurses, and health care providers at asking patients about urinary leakage, though I think there’s room for us to improve as providers.” If you’ve been reluctant to talk about LBL, it may help to know that you are not alone. One in three women experiences LBL. Dr. Starr encourages women to be proactive, and discuss it, because there are some effective options available to you.
