Abstract

Lower urinary tract storage symptoms are common women's health conditions that increase with advancing age. However, symptoms are also common among young women. Understanding the experience of symptoms in young women may help to decrease symptom progression across the life span. The current study was a quantitative Web-based study of female undergraduates. The most commonly reported symptoms were urinary frequency, urgency, and urinary incontinence. Factors that were significantly associated with lower urinary tract storage symptoms included constipation/irritable bowel syndrome, sexual activity, and delayed and/or premature voiding/toileting.
