Abstract

The effects of urinary incontinence on sexual activity were assessed with a questionnaire. Forty-four women were asked about the symptoms of urgency and frequency as well as incontinence. Fifty-six percent of the women experienced urinary incontinence during sexual activity. Sixty-six percent experienced incontinence, urgency or frequency during sexual activity. The women were asked to give recommendations to alleviate or adapt to urinary symptoms. A treatment model for intervention was developed based on the Permission, Limited Information, Specific Suggestion, Intensive Therapy model.
