Don't Make Me Laugh (or Run, Sneeze, Cough!)

If you leak urine when you laugh, sneeze or cough, you have what we call “stress incontinence.” It happens when extra pressure is placed on the abdomen which, in turn, puts pressure on the bladder. Coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting heavy objects, playing tennis, running and jumping are examples of activities that can cause stress incontinence.

Not another bladder infection

If you've had a bladder infection before, you're well aware of the signs when another one is coming on: the strong, incessant urge to urinate, with very little output; the pain or burning when you go; the cloudiness, pink tint or strong smell to your urine; the feeling of pressure or pain in your lower abdomen.
