Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

When you say itching - where is the itching? Your urethral area?

You may have bladder leakage - this is also known as stress incontinence. Stress incontinence is caused by a weakening of the muscles in the pelvic floor and urinary sphincter which can lead to urine leakage after sneezing, laughing, bending or even during intercourse.

With regard to the itching - this could mean some kind of infection. A checkup and chat with your doctor can let you know more.
