Urinary and Bladder Disorders Answer A16886
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. In females, multiple pregnancies and vaginal childbirths and prolapsed uterus can cause such symptoms.

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.
