Peeing when you sneeze, is it normal?
The sneeze thing you should know is that you are not alone. Millions of women worry that a burst of laughter, a sudden sneeze or a bad cough will be more than their leaky bladder can handle. This situation is called stress incontinence. The urethra tube you urinate through is unable to keep urine in the bladder.
You peeing leak when you laugh, cough, run or jump. Stress when incontinence is seen predominantly in women.
The pelvic floor muscles are the key muscles that control urine loss during increases of intra-abdominal pressure. This condition can be caused by childbirth, weight gain, or other you that stretch the pelvic floor muscles.
