    Hi, it just sounds like you have a bladder control problem. There's no need to be embarassed. Just pop in to the doctor :) I read somewhere that it's easily sorted too.

    Might be a stupid quesiton... but are you sure it's not coloured discharge from your vagina?

    Ok, just thought I'd ask.

    You can do excersies and stuff to help tighten up the muscles in that area, your doc can tell you how to do them... You really should go see them about it cos it might be treatable. :)

    If it's mild your doctor will probably tell you to try out pelvic floor exercises to strengthen the muscles however he may prescribe pills too. It's a common problem and is apparently easily sorted out.
