What Is Behavioral Therapy?

Behavioral therapy is safe, easy to learn, and does not have side effects. Examples of behavioral therapy are:

  • Pelvic Muscle Training – Regularly practicing pelvic muscle (Kegel) exercises to help muscle control and manage leakage
  • Bladder Training – Lengthening the time between trips to the bathroom to train the bladder to help women with urge incontinence
  • Relaxation Exercises – Breathing slowly and deeply when the urge strikes
  • Fluid and dietary modification – For example, decreasing daily caffeine intake to help reduce or eliminate urine leakage
