You're right, many women -- young and old -- have a little leakage now and then. If it happens infrequently, it's not a problem. But when female urinary incontinence becomes a bother to you (or those you live with), or when it interferes with exercise, sexual intimacy, or socializing, it's time to ask your doctor for an evaluation and then to explore treatment options. Ignoring the problem of urinary incontinence won't make it go away, it may only make you feel isolated or depressed. Talk to your doctor and get help.
