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: Physical Therapy
Sometimes medicine can help.
Sometimes surgery can help. I always have my patients see a physical therapist that specializes in pelvic floor physical therapy, i see amazing improvements after physical therapy in bladder control. You can find instructions about how to do kegel exercises, but having a physical therapist is much more efficient / effective.
