ABSTRACT

Introduction: Urinary incontinence is a common problem among women around the world. This study was conducted to determine the prevalence, risk factors and the impact on quality of life in Sri Lankan women. Materials and Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted among 289 women (24-67 years) at Gynaecology clinics at Teaching Hospital, Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. Modified questionnaire on urinary incontinence including the questions of International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire- Short Form was used to assess urinary incontinence symptoms. Multiple linear regression analysis was used to find the effects of potential risk factors and chi- square test was performed for further analysis. Results: The overall prevalence of urinary incontinence was 11.4% and according to its type was 4.8% urge incontinence, 4.8% mixed incontinence, 1.7% stress incontinence. Statistical significance at p< 0.05 was accepted for all analysis. Age, body mass index, birth weight of their children, parity and mode of delivery were the significant risk factors. Furthermore, there was a significant impact on quality of their lives. Conclusions: Both urge and mix urinary incontinence is more frequent among Sri Lankan women. The incidence is increased, highlighting the presence of the risk factors for urinary incontinence.
