Many possibilities: Urinary incontinence could be due to pelvic floor weakness, medications, bladder infection, chronic illness, back injury, or from mass effect from an enlarged uterus. Stress incontinence is one type of incontinence that is caused by injury to or weakness in the pelvic floor; this is most commonly caused by child birth but a long history of weight lifting could do this as well.
