You know that feeling when you're about to sneeze and you have to squeeze your body really tight for fear you might have a little leak incident? For me it wasn't until last year that I noticed during a really bad cold, that every time I had a coughing or sneezing fit, my bladder would want to let go. Heck, I will admit that a few times it DID let go. Not a lot but enough that it was super uncomfortable and I had to run to the bathroom. I think that for me it is a mixture of age and my body not being able to hold on the way it used to. Now when I need to go to the restroom, which is more and more often, I need to go quickly. There is no more holding it a few hours or even more than 30 minutes, now I gots to go!
I've actually been one of the lucky ones when you come to think about it. It has taken 7 pregnancies and 40 years for me to have this problem that many women suffer from at much younger ages. Case in point, I have a daughter who is in her very early 20's and has had a light bladder leakage problem for years. It's not rare to watch her run in the house, up the steps and into the bathroom all the while yelling she has peed her pants (we are VERY elegant and refined at my house.) Poor kid. It's something that to us has become the norm but I know it's hard on her. She has to wash a lot more often that we do, sometimes has to carry extra clothes (underwear) and she's had a few public incidents that were not fun at all.
