How can I record my bladder symptoms and monitor the result of treatment?

If you have a urinary incontinence problem, it is essential that you seek medical advice early to rule out infection or some other medical reason for your symptom. Bladder training and pelvic floor exercises can provide a cure or valuable improvement for many women. To begin with it is helpful if you can keep a record of how your bladder is functioning before treatment commences. Make a note of the times that you are emptying your bladder and whether the volume is small, average or large. Your particular problem(s) will indicate to you what else needs to be recorded. If, for example, it is incontinence, you need to note every time there is an accident and how much is lost. A daily summary for a week or two on a chart will provide a basis for comparison once treatment begins. Choose a day when you will be at home and measure the volume you void each time you empty your bladder. You will need an ordinary kitchen measuring jug.
