The Effect of Long-Term Treatment of Overactive Bladder on Self Esteem and Depression; Results from a One Year Prospective Study


Introduction and Objectives: The loss of self-esteem and depressive symptoms have been previously reported in women with urinary incontinence. Low self-esteem and depression can have a profound effect on quality of life. The incidence of depression in the United Kingdom is estimated between 20 to 25% of women. Self-esteem, defined as the "belief and confidence in one’s own ability and value" is distinct from well being, confidence, and depression. Self-esteem and depression influence health-seeking and coping behaviours and perception of illness and treatment compliance, which are important factors in the successful management of lower urinary tract dysfunction. The objective of this study was to determine whether or not treatment of overactive bladder (OAB) was associated with improvement in self-esteem and depression in women, using validated questionnaires.
