Hello,

Cunningham clamp is not recommended nowadays. It can cause many problems like UTI (urinary tract infection). You can opt for other options like drugs. Consult a urologist and he will direct you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
