A Study was conducted to determine the overall frequency of urinary incontinence in pregnant adolescents, focusing particularly on the presence of symptoms of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and coital incontinence (CI), and to describe the biological, sociodemographic, clinical, urinary, reproductive, sexual and lifestyle factors associated with incontinence.

A convenience sample of 103 pregnant adolescents were attended for prenatal consultations during the study period.
Data were collected on the participants characteristics and information based on the incontinence severity index (ISI) questionnaire.

The frequency of urinary incontinence and possible correlations between the women’s characteristics and SUI and CI symptoms were measured.

Results:
Mean age for the study was 16.76 ± 1.8 years.
--Urinary incontinence was present in 60.1% of the patients. Of these, 37.8% had SUI and 33.9% CI.
--In addition, 30.8% of the patients with CI also had SUI.
--There were statistically significant associations between CI and the occurrence of SUI prior to pregnancy (100%), between SUI and chronic coughing (60%) and between CI and height (41.9%).

In particular, Urinary incontinence is a dysfunction that may affect pregnant adolescents, with symptoms possibly beginning as early as the first trimester of pregnancy.
