Hi Unfortunately urinary infections are very common with a catheter as the foreign body in your bladder gets covered by bacteria within a few days. The first step is to see your doctor to make sure there is no other cause for your infections, and this may involve a scan of your kidneys and bladder, ...

It is not uncommon for some teenagers to leak a small amount of urine during laughing or physical activity.

Re: Overavtive bladder-liklihood of being cured?

Good luck!
