This is when you pee when you don’t want to. It may happen when you cough or laugh, or you may just feel a sudden, strong urge to go. Some things you eat or drink can cause it, as can constipation, pregnancy, or childbirth. A health problem like an infection or enlarged prostate can, too. Depending on what’s behind it, it might go away on its own. If it doesn’t, your doctor might suggest changes to your diet, specific exercises, medication, special devices, or surgery.
