Get examined: You need to have a GYN MD examine the vaginal area and possible discharge to see if here is a bacterial infection ongoing. First, eliminate any feminine deodorant or douching products.

Urine leaking: Vaginal delivery and "overfull" bladder can cause leaks in urine. The urethra is shorter in women than in men, and often the "bend" in the urethra which is normal is lost, providing a direct conduit for urine to "leak" even with mild exercise or bending, especially when the bladder is full. Try not waiting after the sensation of bladder filling is present, and seeing your GYN if it continues. ...Read more

bad habits which can lead to post-voiding dribbling: relax rather than strain, avoid compression of penis thru pants, etc. ...Read more
