I asked about the peeing during orgasm and was told that it could be the weakness of pelvic floor muscles when under certain stresses--- So my question now is--- I've had a vaginal reconstruction done 2 years ago. I had rectocele & vagicele repair and the bladder tied up to prevent the incontinence that women get after childbirth. And I do kiegel exercises quite often. Would you still think that i'd have pelvic floor weekness? Also if you have a UTI would that be a possible cause of some incontinence during sex?

Given the information you provided (from your previous question, previous existence of rectocele & vagicele), there might be a possibility that you still have pelvic floor weakness, despite the repair. Most doctors and researchers agree that a UTI can cause the urge to urinate, but the incontinence should appear all the time and not only during sex. You might want to consult an OBGYN to determine what is the real cause.
