In brief: Bladder leakage

There are any number of reasons for bladder leakage and can range from a bladder infection to bladder spasms or weakness of the sphincter (door of the bladder) in addition to overflow incontinence (full bladder).
You should check with your primary care physician to evaluate the cause.

In brief: No

A bladder leak usually occurs when it is very full in combination with a weakness in the neurology or the muscle wall of the bladder.
