Leak with event: Stress incontinence usually has an immediate identifiable cause such as coughing, laughing, sneezing, running, hopping, or jumping. Leaking events are related to specific activities. Stress incontinence is usually not related to strong urges to empty your bladder. To be certain, see a specialist.
