To record a bladder diary, start by keeping it with you every day.
When you have something to drink, write it down. Include a description of the drink and how much you consumed. When you go to the bathroom, write it down, and estimate about how much urine you passed. When it comes to leaks, write down the time of day they occurred, and about how much urine leaked, including whether you had a strong urge to go. It is relevant to include other details about your symptoms such as, what were you doing when the leak occurred? It’s important to be as detailed and meticulous as you can. The more details you can provide the better picture you’ll create of what you’re experiencing.
