In brief: Treatable condition

Two common reasons for urine leakage in women.
Urge incontinence occurs when the bladder spasms pushing urine out. Medications help. Stress incontinence occurs after childbirth where the urethra support is stretched so it sags and urine leakage occurs with coughing, laughing, and exercise. Kegels may help. If not, then a sling works well: takes 10 minutes, outpatient, & recovery in few days.

In brief: Workup can determine

A detailed history, physical exam, and testing can determine exactly what type of incontinence (involuntary leakage of urine) you are experiencing.
This is important because some types of leakage are treated with pelvic exercise, some surgery, others with medication, and still others may require neuromodulation therapy (interstim). A gynecologist or urologist will have expertise and can help.
