Why do I wet my undies after I go to the bathroom?

Sometimes a little pee comes out in my underwear after I go to the bathroom. Do I have a bladder control problem?

You’re probably just one of many girls who deal with a little bit of leakage from time to time. Sounds strange, but sometimes urine gets trapped in your vagina as you pee, and when you stand up, a little may leak out, says Dr. Vinay N. Reddy, assistant professor, Pediatrics and Human Development at Michigan State University. To combat this prob, try leaning forward and spreading your legs wide while you’re on the toilet. If this doesn’t work, or if you leak a small amount of urine when you cough or sneeze, you might need to get your bladder checked out. A visit to your friendly family doctor can help you figure out what to do.
