After reading and signing an informed consent, interviews with women aged 20 years or over and non-pregnant are hold so as to identify those who have complaints about urinary incontinence, socio-economic data and risk factors. In patients who complain about urinary incontinence, gynecological exams are performed in order to assess genital prolapse and urodynamic studies are made as to confirm urinary incontinence and life quality questionnaire.
