Urinary incontinence in nulliparous women aged 25‐64 years: a national survey
TLDR
Almost every aspect of urinary incontinence was present in nulliparous women of all ages and prevalence increased with advancing age between 25‐64 years, which must be taken into account when using nullipara as a control group in comparisons with parous women to estimate the effect of pregnancy and childbirth.
Effect of Mode of Delivery on the Incidence of Urinary Incontinence in Primiparous Women
TLDR
Urinary incontinence is common in the immediate postpartum period after a woman’s first pregnancy, and vaginal delivery increases the risk, but labor and pushing alone without vaginal delivery do not appear to increase this risk significantly.
Prevalence and risk factors of urinary incontinence among Estonian postmenopausal women
TLDR
About one in five postmenopausal women in Estonia reported to have urinary incontinence, and risk factors linked with UI, its prevalence in other age groups and the impact of UI on quality of life deserve more research.
Incidence and remission of urinary incontinence in a community-based population of women ≥50 years
TLDR
Ethnicity and age predicted SVUI progression while age predicted improvement, and rates of the latter were high, particularly in younger patients.
Differences in prevalence of urinary incontinence by race/ethnicity.
TLDR
Significant differences in the adjusted risk of stress incontinence among Hispanic, white, black and Asian-American women suggest the presence of additional, as yet unrecognized, risk or protective factors for stressincontinence.
Familial risk of urinary incontinence in women: population based cross sectional study
TLDR
Women are more likely to develop urinary incontinence if their mother or older sisters are incontinent, and girls of mothers with severe symptoms are likely to have such symptoms.
Urinary Incontinence and Quality of Life in Female Patients with Obesity.
TLDR
Urinary incontinence impacts quality of life negatively, and the prevalence of UI is high among obese patients, and vaginal delivery and menopause were independently associated with UI.
Risk factors for urinary incontinence in Turkish women. A cross-sectional study.
TLDR
The results of this study supported previous reports revealing that age, body mass index, type of deliveries and number of pregnancies/deliveries are risk factors of UI, and showed that age and body massIndex should be regarded as independent risk factors.

Parity as a correlate of adult female urinary incontinence prevalence.
TLDR
The hypothesis that pregnancy and childbirth are potent causes of female urinary incontinence, so that they exert considerable impact on the level of population urinaryincontinence prevalence, is supported.
Validation of a severity index in female urinary incontinence and its implementation in an epidemiological survey.
TLDR
The severity index may be a useful tool for assessing the severity of female urinary incontinence in epidemiological surveys and it is confirmed that urinaryincontinence is very prevalent in adult women, but most should not be regarded as potential patients.
A severity index for epidemiological surveys of female urinary incontinence: Comparison with 48‐hour pad‐weighing tests
TLDR
The four‐level severity index seems to be a valid representation of incontinence severity as measured by pad‐weighing tests in women presenting for clinical care and should be considered a potentially valid measure of incentinence severity in epidemiological studies.

TLDR
Study of explanatory factors for help-seeking among incontinent women in Rissa, Norway found increasing age and duration, and urge/mixed type of incontinence were determinatives for doctor consultation, while increasing severity and impact were determinative for planned consultation.
Diagnostic classification of female urinary incontinence: an epidemiological survey corrected for validity.
Diagnostic questions about stress and urge incontinence were validated against a final diagnosis made by a gynecologist after urodynamic evaluation. Thereafter, an epidemiological survey was

The influence of age, parity, duration of previous oral contraceptive use, hysterectomy and menopause on the prevalence of urinary incontinence was evaluated by means of a postal questionnaire in
Reported prevalence of urinary incontinence in women in a general practice
TLDR
Urinary incontinence was significantly associated with perineal suturing after childbirth, and postnatal exercises for the pelvic floor were not beneficial, while the 6% of women who always require protection against leakage could be helped by treatment.
