In brief: Loss of urine

Stress incontinence is losing urine without meaning to during physical activity, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise.
Stress incontinence may occur from weakened pelvic muscles that support the bladder and urethra or because the urethral sphincter is not working correctly. This could be caused by: childbirth, medications, obesity, smoking. Stress incont. Is much more common in women.

In brief: Unclear

Not sure I understand your question.
Stress incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine with strain such as coughing, laughing, sneezing, lifting. I'm not sure what you mean by"self" we frequently talk about genuine or urodynamic stress incontinence based on how it is diagnosed but I have never heard the term self stress incontinence
