Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. I feel you’re suffering from stress incontinence and a cause for the same needs to be searched.

It can be due to weakened pelvic muscles that support the bladder and urethra or because of a malfunction of the urethral sphincter.


A cystoscopy can always be done to look for any local causes for the same. An infection in the prostate in males could be a culprit in the same.

Hence, a rectal examination can also help in picking up the chronic prostatitis which can give rise to the symptoms which you’ve mentioned.

Please consult a uroloist for the same.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
