It’s common, but it’s not a normal part of aging, so you should talk to your doctor if it happens to you. Depending on the type of incontinence, your doctor will try to figure out what is causing it. Sometimes, lifestyle changes can fix the problem. Try cutting back on caffeine and alcohol, eating more fiber, and maintaining a healthy weight. Keeping a diary of your symptoms may also help.
