OK, We're all ladies here.. so - I am post-menopausal and I have found that I need to pee a LOT, and when I get the urge, sometimes it is a 'right now' kind of thing; and I am wondering if lady truckers have some 'in-truck' ways to take care of this so we don't have to keep stopping to pee? I am aware of the kegel exercises, but that hasn't seemed to help a whole lot yet. Any comments would be appreciated :)

They have meds the doctor can put you on. However you will find that your bladder calms itself in this truck. I know mine has. Also you could be like me and develop chronic bladder infections and just not know it. Check that out. Ultimately drinking fluids sparingly is the only way to curb massive stops. I usually stop 2 to 3 times max.

Frequent bladder infections is the bane of lady truckers...but the natural way to curb those infections is to take 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar a day.....it cleans the kidneys and bladder....keeps the pipes workin'. Its not great tasting...but I got used to it..and its preferable to the infections.. Also...I had a porta potty in our truck..mostly because we teamed, and that truck rarely stopped for more than fuel. But if I were to run solo, i'd still have one. Its just nice for at night, and I don't want to walk to the ts...or if I haveta pee, I'll take an exit, park on the side, and use it...

Thanks for posting this. I have to stop every two hours to pee. Urgently! I don't have any pains or anything but next home time I will check to see if I have a bladder infection. I'm sure I have enough acid in my diet because I used to get kidney stones, then I started drinking a glass of orange juice with 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar in it.

Cool, Thanks Redgator thank-you.gif I avoid meds like poison, lol.. but will check into possible infections? seems like I would know if something was wrong (no pain ever) but I very much appreciate the suggestions! The phrase 'Keep On Truckin' comes to mind, and all of a sudden it has a whole new meaning - Enjoy!

I dont get pain at all or any other symptoms just frequent urination. I cant hold it at all then I take the meds and it gets better til the next time. I had a medicine called cialis for overactive bladder and it was awesome but a $200 for a 30 day supply ill just stop more.

Excellent! Yes, I am aware of the apple cider vinegar, but honestly never have taken it because of the taste- but i will start now! Thanks so much for the advice & also about the in-truck porta potty I didn't know they had those!! Thanks!

I mix the apple cider vinegar with honey (which is also good for you)....makes it tolerable...and the porta potty is the ones you can buy at Wally World..they are small, efficient, and better than peein' in a jar...or...for Redgator...a big gulp cup...rofl-1.gifrofl-1.gif

The apple cider vinegar is key for keeping your bladder and kidneys healthy and clean....but the orange juice is not your friend...try to use cranberry or a mix. but hi citric juices burn the lining of the kidneys, and tend to irritate the bladder...thats why they are always pushing apple juice in your face when your in the hospital...lol
