Stress incontinence: This is a common condition, but many women are embarassed to tell their docs. The muscles controlling the opening-tube (urethra--see pic) is weakened, often due to vaginal delivery and aging, and unable to squeez during laughing/sneezing which increases intra-abdominal pressure, thus causes leaking of urine. Doing kegel exercises to trenghten pelvic floor muscle may help. Consult doc. Good luck.
