Does "going before going" help control bladder problems?

Most people find that sticking to a schedule is the only way to manage their daily business. If you're struggling with bladder problems, try applying the same strategy. Simply put: Try peeing on a regular schedule. Don't wait for the urge to hit you suddenly when you're in a meeting or standing in the checkout line at the grocery store. Empty your bladder on a regular basis, and you may find that you experience fewer problems with urine leaks.
Going before going -- or emptying the bladder before feeling the need to urinate -- to try to avoid a trip to the bathroom when it’s less convenient may actually make bladder problems worse. The bladder can get into the habit of going even when you don't really have to.
