If I drink less, will I have less issues?
Staying hydrated is important, even if you're experiencing leaks.
Many people reduce their liquid intake thinking it will decrease the amount leakage they experience. However, dehydration results in more concentrated urine that can irritate the bladder and increase the risk of a Urinary Tract Infection and incontinence. In other words, stay hydrated and choose water over other beverages whenever you can.
