Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you.
You want to know the cause of the symptoms that you experience.
In cases of a sudden increase of the abdominal pressure such as during coughing, individuals can experience leakage of urine or urination if the urinaary bladder is full with urine at the same time. This condition may normally appear in various individuals and may last during the time they experience the cold and the coughing. If individuals experience leakage of urine without any provocative factor such as coughing, further examination is required to exclude possible incontinence.
Accroding to the data that you described, you may be experiencing the leakage of urine due to increased abdominal pressure which appears during coughing. If you still experience leakage of urine without experiencing coughing, see a urologist to exclude possible incontinence.
Please keep in mind that I provide medical information only. I am not able to diagnose medical conditions online. Please contact your doctor or other qualified healthcare provider such as a urologist for further advice and information about diagnosis and treatment options.
