Why do I pass urine while coughing or sneezing?

Q: I find that due to force of sneezing/coughing I pass urine. It is a real problem when I am travelling or in office. I am currently using adult diapers. Please suggest whether there are any surgical procedures to correct this as I had earlier read about this in the Week mag. If so, please suggest name of doctor hospitals in Kolkata doing this?

A:The condition is called stress incontinence. This usually results from a difficult childbirth. Initial treatment is by exercises; some forms of electric stimulation therapy may help you. If these do not work, surgery usually controls the incontinence. You need the attention of a gynaecologist. There should be several gynaecologists in Kolkata who can help.
