Any chance you have a bladder infection? I never had one until several months after my second was born. I had no pain/burning, but just leaking to the point of wearing a pad. I honestly just drank a ton of cranberry juice (natural cure, although maybe only b/c it hadn't gotten too far) and it went away after a day or so. I've also heard that apple cider vinegar helps, but the smell/taste was too much for me.
If not that, then I think I would run it past your doctor just to see...and the kegel exercises do help.
My doc warned me that if I didn't pee virtually every hour on the hour when pregnant, that I would have leakage later, after the pregnancy was over, b/c the muscles there weaken. Kegels are one way to help, but if you do them for a few months and find you're still leaking, talk to your doctor.
Turns out it was a bladder infection....and one that traveled to my kidneys!! So I guess not all bladder infections are painful!! I developed a slight fever just before heading to my dr appt. Other than that, the only symptom I had was the leakage.
