Answer

Incontinence histories can be very complex and time consuming. Most centers use some form of incontinence questionnaire as an aid. Sending the questionnaire to patients in advance so that they can give appropriate time and thought to their answers may be helpful. Part of the questionnaire should deal with the patient's quality of life, sexual and lifestyle issues, and the relationship of these factors to the incontinence disorder.
