Many women with mild incontinence can stop leaks by drinking less. Try pouring your cups half-full, and stay away from drinks with caffeine like coffee, tea, and sodas. It can cause you to make more urine, which leads to needing to go more often. Make sure to drink enough water so you won't become dehydrated. Another strategy is to empty your bladder regularly, every 2 to 4 hours, whether you need to go or not.
