Urinary incontinence or bladder leakage affects 1 in 3 adult women and 1 in 8 teens, so it's pretty common. It can be as little as a drop or as much as a flood. It can happen for a lot of different reasons. Things like pregnancy and birth are well-known causes, but it can also happen if you've had a cough for a long time (like with asthma), if you strain on the loo, if you're overweight, or if you're into a lot of regular high intensity exercise.
Mostly it happens because your pelvic floor muscles are lazy and aren't doing their job - and if that's the case, like any muscles, they just need to get a good work out! Click the links to find out about the different types of problems.
