The prevalence and severity of urinary incontinence in women

, : The prevalence and severity of urinary incontinence in women. Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health 35(1): 71-74

Women aged 18 or over (1060), randomly selected from a defined geographical area in southern Wales, were interviewed at home about their urinary symptoms. Ninety-five percent cooperated, of whom 45% admitted to some degree of incontinence. Stress incontinence was reported by 22% of women, urge incontinence by 10% and both types 14%. In most women urinary loss was small and infrequent but 5% of all women experienced a loss sufficient to necessitate a change of clothes; in 2.6% such loss occurred daily. Over 3% of all women reported that incontinence interfered with their social or domestic life but only half of these had sought medical advice.
