What is a Bladder(Voiding) Diary?

A bladder diary is a tool used by you and your health care professional to better understand your Incontinence symptoms. It helps you track and know how much and when you drink liquids, how much and when you urinate, when you have that “gotta go” feeling, and how much and when you leak urine.

When is a Bladder Diary used?

You can use a Bladder Diary before or after visiting with your health care provider. Having a Bladder Diary during your first visit can be helpful because it describes your daily habits, your urinary symptoms and demonstrates how they are affecting your life. Your doctor will use this information to help treat you.
