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. Your gynecologist can do the necessary testing or refer you to someone who can more completely evaluate your symptoms.

In brief: Pills may help

There are basically 3 different types of urine leakage: stress, urge and overflow.
They cause leaking with different situations and are treated very differently. Urge incontinence will respond to medication, the other 2 types won't. Both stress and urge may get better with physical therapy.

In brief: Depends.

If you leak most often with activities like coughing, laughing or sneezing then you probably have stress incontinence.
Leaking with a strong urge to urinate usually indicates bladder spasms or urge incontinence. Their are many treatment options available for your leaking and you should not have to wear diapers. You can start the evaluation with your gyn.

In brief: Many options

I would suggest an evaluation by a provider who focuses on urinary incontinence.
This may be either a urologist, urogynecologist or gynecologists. There are many potential treatments once the final diagnosis has been determined.
