Doctor: There seems to be a problem with the bladder sphincter muscle. The sphincter is under voluntary control and prevents uri ne from leaking out. You seem to have some bladder sphincter dysfunction and require investigation by a urologist who has special expertise in this area. Extensive investigations will be required to confirm the diagnosis and plan effective treatment.
