Don't have knappers anymore !!!
Hi there,

I gave birth to my baby 2 years ago, but i find that i can't knapp (pinch) anymore.
and this happens when i sneeze or cough then a little wee will drip out making my panties a bit wet.....and it's nice when it happens and i'm at work or out, cause when i go to the loo then i end up having a strong wee smell.

I have the Nova T, so i don't know if that makes any difference..

Is there any other moms out there that experiences the same thing as me....and if yes...what did/do you do about it?

You can try pelvic floor exercises. This invloves knyping 50 times a day. It strengthens the muscles and may help for the urine leakage. If this does not work surgery may be needed.
