    I'm suffering from urinary incontinence after childbirth since 8 months. Where to go to diagnose the problem and seek treatment and preferably affordable.

    Do your kegels first for a month or two and see if it helps. If not then seek treatment.

    Was the baby not born in HK? Can you not contact the hospital/doctors you with whom you delivered the baby?

    GPs are always the first place to start if you want referred to a specialist. Cheapest GP are the ones at the government outpatient clinics, where you queue up in the morning and pay $50. They will refer you to doctors within the public system, but there are long waits for specialists (like one year).

    Have you been attending the local MCHS clinic for the babys checkups? Ask them for advice and a referral. Otherwise the family planning clinic.

    Jockey Club Outpatient Clinics require telephone or app. booking or a prior appointment sheet. You're not walking in with just an ID. card.

    Yes I've been attending a MCHS clinic but baby's next appointment is 4 months away.

    Thanks for the replies everyone so the government outpatient clinics or the family planning clinic? Either is alright or one is better? Both of them have a year long wait?

    I'm not sure if I'm doing kegels correctly. On the internet each site is showing different ways of doing them. I'm not sure which is the correct technique.

    I think you should call the MCHS clinic that you've been attending with the baby and ask if you could see a doctor about 'Postnatal' issues. Not all MCHS do 'Women's Health' Services, but these ones do https://www.fhs.gov.hk/english/centr...cent_pwhs.html

    This also might help with the exercises https://www.fhs.gov.hk/english/healt...oman/9946.html

    First try and see a doctor and be examined- you might need physiotherapy or something more serious.

    I know you said affordable, but if you can stretch the budget I'd really recommend going to see a specialist women's health physio such as Jenny Fielding (no affiliation, but have friends who speak highly of her). If you say you're on a tight budget hopefully ou won't need many appointments but can take away some exercises to do at home.
