Brief Summary:
The publications on prevalence and risk factors of urinary and anal incontinence in women were performed mainly in Europe and America. Consequently, result extrapolation to Tunisian population may not be a good practice which justifies this study and demonstrates its importance.

Detailed Description:
A cross-sectional study will be conducted among female doctors and nurses randomly selected from 3 large hospitals in the center of Tunisia. The prevalence of urinary incontinence and anal incontinence will be measured using validated questionnaires.

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 400 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Prevalence and Risk Factors for Urinary and Anal Incontinence in Tunisian Middle Aged Women
Actual Study Start Date : June 16, 2017
Actual Primary Completion Date : September 30, 2017
Actual Study Completion Date : September 30, 2017



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence of urinary incontinence [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    The participant will be asked to fill out the urinary symptom profile questionnaire (USP). This questionnaire contains 13 items to assess stress urinary incontinence, urge urinary incontinence and dysuria. Each question is scored from 0 to 3 providing a maximal score of 9, 21 and 9 for stress urinary incontinence, urge urinary incontinence and dysuria respectively. Women diagnosed with both stress and urge urinary incontinence by the USP were classified as having mixed urinary incontinence.

  2. Prevalence of anal incontinence [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    The participant will be asked to fill out the anal incontinence Jorge and Wexner which contains five questions scored on a scale from zero (normal continence) to 20 (total incontinence).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Risk factors for urinary and anal incontinence [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
