Varies: See your doctor. Depending on the severity he may recommend kaegel exercises, a pessary, surgery, or in-tone. There are some medicines that may also help.
Dr. George Klauber

Start with Kegels: Tighten buttock muscles ; rotate hips outwards. Hold 30-60 secs, relax ; repeat 9 times, 5x/day. Also worth consulting urologist or uro-gynecologist for urodynamic studies which could be followed by bladder neck or urethral suspension surgery. Good luck.

Consult SUI Dr.: Urologist or uro-gynecologist. Therapeutic pessaries are sometimes useful, more so for older women. Urethral inserts are also stop gap devices. However, would advise surgical bladder neck or urethral suspension for someone as young as you.
