Hi there,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

I can understand your concern, as the age advances the ligaments around the uterus they become lax and weak. So along with it the uterus drags the surrounding structures like bladder and upper urethra. for this reason when ever you cough or strain urine leaks out..its known as STRESS INCONTINENCE.

For this problem you should consult a Uro-Gynaecologist.
