Hello,

This is called Urinary incontinence which the loss of bladder control. This is a common and often embarrassing problem.

The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you cough or sneeze to having an urge to urinate that's so sudden and strong you don't get to a toilet in time.

If urinary incontinence affects your daily activities, don't hesitate to see your doctor. For most people, simple lifestyle changes or medical treatment can ease discomfort or stop urinary incontinence.

Pelvic floor muscle exercises or electrostimulation may be required is severe cases.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
