You probably have a little bit of urinary incontinence when you sneeze and you cough and you exercise, but believe it or not that can be normal for some people. For example if you have a full bladder and all of a sudden you sneeze, yes you're going to dribble a little bit of urine. That doesn't necessary make you incontinent.

When it's incontinence is when it happens all the time and it's really impairing upon your function, for example that you're exercising, you can't go to the store. You cannot lift groceries or anything and yet you're still dribblling that is truly stress incontinence and you need to address that with your gynocologist.
