Does anyone else's bladder control get significantly worse if they're a bit pissed??

Mine is normally OK - in the sense that it's not brilliant but I don't actually get leaks etc - but if I've been drinking, and so the muscles all relax I guess, it is much worse. To my shock and horror, I was just absolutely desperate for the loo and was trying to do something else but actually did have proper leakage. Thank god I was at home and not out (chance would be fine thing). Am really bad at remembering to do pelvic floor exercises so only got self to blame, just wondered if anyone else found it deteriorated with wine consumption?!

Just to clarify - a couple of glasses of wine or so.

It's normal. Alcohol is a relaxant. Keep up with the pelvic floor exercises though, they will help.
