Leg Scratch

When nature calls and you can't get to the bathroom fast enough, scratch the back of your leg really hard.

Leg scratch 'controls' women's loo call.

"If you scratch or rub the back of your calf for a few moments, really vigorously, you may interrupt the message from your bladder to your brain just long enough for you to make it to the toilet," Ms Webb said.

Ms Webb works for the Jean Hailes Foundation for Women's Health which has joined forces with the Continence Foundation of Australia to raise awareness of continence problems.
