In brief: A sling is the best
Out there. You can try kegel exercises, but eventually they will not work for you - usually.
Weight loss can help too.

In brief: Start with exercises
Review your diet.
Caffeine can exacerbate urine loss. Make sure you are emptying your bladder every hour or two. Try kegel exercises. Have your doctor or a pelvic floor phyiscal therapist make sure you are doing them correctly. Then, consider renessa, an office procedure which remodels the collagen. More invasive procedures may be necessary, but many patients do well with noninvasive options.
