Stress incontinence: Urine leak with sneezing is called stress incontinence and is more common in women, particularly those who have delivered children vaginally. If you are bothered by the amount and frequency of leakage, see a urologist or gynecologist for evaluation. A wide range of therapies, from pelvic floor muscle training, to medications, to surgical procedures are available depending on the cause.

SUI: This is stress urinary incontinence. May respond to kegel exercises, which involve squeezing buttocks together & thrusting pelvis forward 10 times slowly and holding it 30 - 60 seconds & repeat 5 times a day. Can be done standing, sitting or lying down. Also try placing a ball between your knees and squeezing knees together, hold as log as u can and then repeating. U may need gyn/urologist dr.
