    Voiding Log (Bladder Record)

    Topic Overview

    Complete one of these records each day for several days, then take the completed records to your doctor. This information will help you and your doctor see how often you leak urine and what seems to cause the leakage.



    Instructions: Place a check mark in the appropriate column next to the time you urinated in the toilet or when an incontinence episode occurred. Note the reason for the incontinence, and describe your liquid intake (for example, coffee or water) and estimate the amount (for example, 1 cup).
