    I had a prolapsed bladder after the birth of my DD. I could not even hold my urine, it would just flow out when it had reached a certain fullness. It was horrible. I had to wear diapers for a good 2 weeks. I started working those pelvic floor muscles with a physiotherapist and slowly gained back control. But like you, I didn't feel the need to go anymore. It did come back after a few months. Have you started physiotherapy?x

    I'm not having physiotherapy for my bladder I do have a appointment with the gynaecologist in a few weeks so il will raise it to them as none seemed concerned because I can urinate when I take myself

    I felt “off” down below for a good 3 months postpartum. I was convinced I had a prolapse as it felt like my insides were falling out and nothing was where it should be. I didn’t lose the sensation of needing to pee, but my point is that it might resolve itself in another month or two. I’m 4 months pp now and all of the weird sensations have cleared up. Birth is very traumatic for your body. I’d recommend you do your pelvic floor exercises religiously x

    I had no sensation to go, as soon as I thought I had to go, it would already be too late. After a while I started to get a real stinging sensation when I would go, it lasted about a month or so, and then the sensation started to come back little by little. I'm sure it's due to nerves being damaged during birth. But like @WinterWolf says, it just takes time for your body to heal. I also had spd and I could only lift weights again a year later. Hang in there!x
