In brief: Talk to your OBGYN

Delivery can injure or stretch pelvic muscles/nerves.
Do u lose urine just when you cough or sneeze or do you have control trouble all the time? Pay attention to this and they will help your ob/gyn determine the type of bladder issue that may be present as there are different treatment types, either medicines or surgery. Surgery is typically done after you're finished childbearing.Talk to your obg.

You might need surgical repair. See your OBGYN. Best to go back to the one who delivered your baby when you were 16.

In brief: Visit a gynecologist

I'm assuming that you had a vaginal birth.
In such cases, the pelvic muscles can be stretched, leading to incontinence. A skilled gynecologist can help diagnose they type of incontinence and help plan out a treatment with you.
