Since many factors can affect the manifestation of urinary disorders in a particular woman at different periods of life, some of them can cause urinary incontinence, affect the choice of method and the success of treatment. The results of the research indicate that a survey of diseases such as overactive bladder syndrome requires a comprehensive approach by carefully collecting the socioeconomic status, style and quality of life, extragenital diseases, family, obstetric-gynecological and hereditary history, as well as sexual function women in the reproductive period. The results of this study should be taken into account in the development of an algorithm for diagnosis of women with overactive bladder syndrome during pregnancy and after delivery to avoid or reduce the clinical manifestations and severity of this syndrome among the female population in future.
