In the present review, based on the literature data search, we suggest the urinary incontinence during sexual intercourse is an under-reported disorder among women with urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence during sexual intercourse is defined as “complaint of involuntary loss of urine during coitus” according to the International Urogynecological Association and the International Continence Society in 2010.
This review was conducted by screening and gathering results of research papers from PubMed and Medscape. External sources were not used. Relevant studies were searched by using keywords: urinary leakage during sexual intercourse, coital incontinence, urinary incontinence during sexual intercourse, female urinary incontinence during intercourse.
In PubMed we found 14 articles of which 8 included only an abstract. In Medscape we have found 1 article. In the end only six articles were appropriate for analysis.
Finally, based on literature screening we find that, the prevalence of coital incontinence in women with urinary incontinence was high. We sustain the fact that urinary incontinence during sexual intercourse is a disease that can affect sexual life and is under-reported.
