Metryki PlumX:

Urinary incontinence (UI) is a widespread chronic disease that causes embarrassment and shame among patients and can affect between 17 to 60% of the population. It can alter the quality of life and cause physical and mental discomfort. Not all women are aware of urogynecological physiotherapy when a physiotherapy visit is recommended after each pregnancy.

The aim of the study was to investigate the level of knowledge of women with urinary incontinence.

Material and methods:
A group of 189 women participated in the study. There was a questionnaire used which was placed on different websites.

Although women's knowledge level of urinary incontinence can be considered good, almost half of the respondents have not been to a specialist in relation to this issue. Many women feel embarrassed when experiencing urine loss. Frequently, these feelings accompany patients for several years.

Urinary incontinence is an embarrassing problem for some women, making them reluctant to seek help from a specialist. Expanding preventive and educational initiatives regarding urinary incontinence is important to increase patients’ awareness.
