Check your pad: Urinary incontinence is the loss of urine when you don't mean to. Most commonly, you would have wet underwear or a pad that gets wet with urine.

Leaking Urine: Incontinence is the leakage of urine. Sometimes one can't tell the difference between sweat, urine, or vaginal discharge. An easy test is to use over the counter AZO that dyes urine orange. Take for 24 hours and evaluate pads. Though vaginal secretions can stain orange, urine will be a more distinct orange color. Consider discussing further with primary doctor, OB/gyn,urogyn. or urologist
