In brief: See a gynecologist
Urinary incontinence is very common and there are many treatments available.
The treatment depends on the cause of the leaking. Newer treatment available over the last few years are highly successful. Your gynecologist can do the necessary testing or refer you to someone who can more completely evaluate your symptoms.

There are several types of urinary incontinence - stress, urge, functional, overflow, etc.
All have different treatments ranging from simple kegel exercises to oral medications to surgery. This is certainly something that should be brought to your physicians attention so that the problem can be further defined.

You may have stress incontinence, which happens when you cough or sneeze. You may be able to improve your symptoms by cutting back on caffeine and doing Kegel exercises. You may have urge incontinence, that you feel the urge and then your bladder just empties. This is often improved with medication. You may have urethral hypermobility which is easily treated in the office with Renessa.

In brief: Depends
Depends on the cause and type of incontinence.
I recommend further evaluation by urologist, urogynecologist, gynecologist or primary physician. There are many non surgical and surgical options. In addition can consider pelvic physical therapy. Once again, this all depends on type and cause of incontinence and it should be evaluated further. www.voicesforpfd.org

If no response see a urogynecologist.
