I have bronchitis so I’ve been doing a lot of hard coughing to where I wet myself, even after I have gone to the restroom. What can I do?

Over time, chronic coughing can put a big strain on your pelvic floor muscles. As the muscles weaken, leaking can increase. Luckily, there are things you can do, such as work with your physician to get your coughing under control. Also, you may find it helpful to do exercises such as Kegels, yoga, or any type of exercise designed to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. We have an article titled, "How to Kegel" that you may find useful at http://www.poise.com/advice-and-support/expert-answers/article/how-to-kegel
