Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine. It means that control over the urinary sphincter is either lost or weakened and a person urinates when they do not want to. Urinary incontinence is a common problem that affects many people. The objective of our study is to find out the co-relation between the occurrence of urinary incontinence and quality of life (QOL) of middle aged female among Indian population. Forty-five females diagnosed with urinary incontinence were included in the study. Revised Urinary Incontinence Scale (RUIS) was used for scoring urinary incontinence and The King’s Heath Questionnaire was used for scoring QOL. Outcome measure is score in QOL scale for those females with urinary incontinence.

Thus the study conclude that Revised Urinary Incontinence Scale (RUIS) and The Kings Health questionnaire has significant correlation on quality of life among middle aged females.
