This is a condition which causes sufferers to wake up numerous times a night to go to the toilet to empty their bladder. The number of times can vary from three to eight or nine. The problem is that the interrupted sleep causes tiredness during the day, leading to lack of attention to tasks, or even accidents.
The cause of nocturia is looseness of the back ligaments (known as “uterosacrals”) which support the womb.
The cure, if it is available in your country, is simply to shorten and strengthen the uterosacral ligament. In younger women up to 50% improvement can be achieved with pelvic floor exercises.
The book, ‘Home and Dry’ gives full details of how this can be achieved.
