If you have stress incontinence, you may experience urine leakage when you:
- Stand up
- Get out of a car
- Lift something heavy
- Have sex
You may not experience incontinence every time you do one of these things, but any pressure-increasing activity can make you more vulnerable to unintentional urine loss, particularly when your bladder is full.
When to see a doctor
Talk to your doctor if your symptoms interfere with daily activities, such as work, hobbies and social life.
