In a nutshell, it’s when your body suddenly can’t hold in urine due to unexpected muscle contractions or nerve signals between the bladder and brain. This causes an involuntary release of a small amount of urine during physical activity like coughing or sneezing and even laughing too hard!
It can be caused by a wide range of health factors. The most common causes are pregnancy, childbirth or menopause that can lead to the weakened pelvic floor muscles.
