Stress incontinence: Stress incontinence occurs when there is leakage of urine with laughing, coughing, lifting etc. It usually effects women in their middle age, especially after child bearing. It is a bit unusual in some as young as 16. There are a number of conditions that can cause this. See your doctor for a checkup.
