Hard to know: Incontinence can be caused by an anatomical defect (stress incontinence that occurs with coughing, sneezing) and may be treated surgically or may be a nerve issue (urge incontinence/overactive bladder) which may be treated medically. Both may respond to pelvic muscle exercises and voiding on a scheduled, say every 2 hours. See a specialist if this continues to bother you.
