Hi Missbrooklynnv

Your pelvic muscles can weaken from childbirth. Kegels exercises will help you strengthen them :
Diane K Newman, RN-C, MSN, ANP responded:
It sounds a though you may have stress urinary incontinence which is when you leak urine with effort or when you laugh, cough or sneeze or exercise. This can be caused from weak pelvic floor muscle or a weak sphincter. This is seen in one out of 5 women after childbirth. You need to start a very structured pelvic floor muscle training program.
