Introduction and hypothesis: Some new urogynecology patients who are given the Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Function Questionnaire (PISQ-12) complete it despite stating that they are not sexually active. This study compared sexually active (SA) and non-sexually active (NSA) women who complete the PISQ-12, hypothesizing that these groups differ substantially. Methods: New patients during the study period were given the PISQ-12 and two other validated questionnaires. Medical and demographic data were collected and analyzed for univariate differences between SA and NSA PISQ-12 completers. Logistical regression identified factors predicting PISQ-12 completion. Results: Of the 655 new patients during the study period, 399 completed the PISQ-12. Of these, 16.8% were NSA. These women were older, less likely married, and had higher BMI than their SA counterpart. Being sexually active, younger, and married are predictors of PISQ-12 completion. Conclusions: Some NSA women complete the PISQ-12. Instructions should specify that only SA women complete this questionnaire.
