Abstract: The prevalence of urinary incontinence is around 20% of healthy middle - aged women. Incontinence causes negative impact on quality of life and sexuality. From August 2002 to January 2004, 30 patients (mean age 43 years) with stress urinary incontinence (59%) overactive bladder (15%) and mixed incontinence (26%) answered the ICIQSF (International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Short Form) and FSFI (Female Sexual Function Index) questionnaires before and after treatment. The follow up ranged from 12 to 53 months. Mean ICIQ scores was 17 and 7 before and after treatment respectively (p < 0,001). Overactive bladder showed the worst scores in all domains. The patients undergone to surgery increased desire (p=0,02), satisfaction (p=0,05) and total score. Thirteen patients which ICIQ was zero increased : desire (p =0,01), satisfaction (p=0,05) and total score (p=0,01). Urinary incontinence affects the quality of life significantly. Sexuality evaluation in incontinence patients is recommended.
