In brief: Stress Incontinence

Stress incontinence: leaking urine with activity, cough, sneeze.
It occurs because of a weakness to the ligaments supporting the urethra. There are many treatment options. Follow up with a gynecologist, urogynecologist or urologist to discuss. Treatment options can be pelvic PT, topical estrogen, pessary, plugs, radiofrequency, bulking, slings Resources: www.voicesforpfd.www.ics.org

In brief: Possibly if you also

Have wetting accidents with coughing, sneezing or jumping.
Otherwise is known as "giggle incontinence" if you only wet with laughing and/or giggling.
