Urinary incontinence

I have been suffering from stress urinary incontinence since a few years. This happens only when i laugh very much and am not able to control the urine. This happens rarely and i have not referred this to a doctor yet. What should i do? I have read about surgical options but i don't want to do that. Are there any other options for treatment?

It's a mechanical defect. There r no medicines for it. Surgery is the only option. it's called trans obturator tape or TOT. It's a fairly simple day care surgery. U walk home in the evening. Incontinence has happened because of laxity in the muscle at the neck of the bladder. U can contact me for further details

So what you need to do is empty your bladder regularly so that you don't have to fave this problem. So not take to much of fluid when you don't have the faculty of wash room around. Do not wait until your bladder is full. Thank you
