Yeah, it is considered urinary incontinence. There may be three reasons for that; number one, maybe the bladder was full, so always my advise would be to empty the bladder before having sex. Secondly, 20% of women have bacteria in the urine, not enough to produce an infection, but enough to give irritability to the bladder. So get a urine culture and make sure there is not a problem and be treated, and the third one is a contraction of the bladder. If that is a problem and we rule out the other two problems, we have medications that we can give to avoid that problem.
