First step: Keep a diary
The basis of bladder training is keeping a diary. You can use it to write down
- how often you go to the bathroom,
- how much urine comes out, and
- how much you drink throughout the day.
It is also important to record information about any medications you take and about situations in which you accidentally leak urine. These notes can be helpful when talking to your doctor and might provide important clues about the cause of the problem.
