Stress urinary incontinence is a bothersome condition that may impact quality of life and lead to sexual disorders. However, while surgical repair significantly reduces incontinence, improvements in sexual symptoms are not guaranteed. Vaginal narrowing, diminished orgasm, pain, mesh erosion or decreased lubrication may occur following a small proportion of these interventions. It is important to counsel patients regarding their sexual function and expectations prior to and following any surgical procedure in order to mitigate any negative impact on their overall quality of life.
