(STUDYFINDS) — It’s uncomfortable and often untimely, but not as unusual as one might think: a recent survey finds that 61% of women regularly deal with bladder leaks.

In fact, researchers say that a third of the 2,000 women surveyed typically experience multiple leaks in a day. About one in five respondents young and old (19%) say they battle bladder leaks every day without fail. And of course it seems that the problem tends to occur at the worst times — 62% said they’ve experienced leaks in public places.
