Voiding Symptoms in Pregnancy: An Assessment with International Prostate Symptom Score
TLDR
Vounding symptoms during pregnancy are highly prevalent and worsen as the pregnancy progresses, and frequency and nocturia were the most prominent symptoms in pregnancy.
Lower urinary tract symptoms in early pregnancy
TLDR
It was found that increased voiding occurred in early pregnancy in 91 per cent of women and stress incontinence was a greater prevalence in white parous women compared to white nulliparous women but there was no such difference in the black group.
Postpartum Urinary Retention
TLDR
Treatment begins with supportive measures to enhance the likelihood of micturition, such as ambulation, privacy, and a warm bath, and if these measures are not successful, catheterization can be performed.
THE INCIDENCE OF UROLOGICAL SYMPTOMS IN NORMAL PREGNANCY
TLDR
The incidences of stressincontinence and urge incontinence were increased and that of hesitancy was decreased by pregnancy, and descent of the presenting part did not affect any of these symptoms.
The Symptom of Stress Incontinence Caused by Pregnancy Or Delivery in Primiparas
TLDR
The importance of various obstetric factors seems transient and their etiologic role remains unclear, whereas cesarean delivery seemed to protect against, the development of stress incontinence after delivery.

Urological problems in pregnancy

The physiological and pathological consequences of pregnancy and delivery on the urinary tract are described, and how these may be minimized.
Assessment of urinary symptoms in early pregnancy
