PISQ-IR: Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire, IUGA-Revised

The PISQ-IR is a validated evaluation tool which can be used clinically as well as in research for assessment of female sexual function (FSF) in women with female pelvic floor disorders. The PISQ-IR is the result of an IUGA panel, made up of recognized experts with clinical and academic experience in the areas of female sexual function, urogynecology, and outcomes research, to re-evaluate the PISQ. The goals of the re-evaluation panel were to address deficits in the PISQ by refining the measurement properties of the questionnaire, enhancing the ability to assess outcomes in women who are not sexually active and in women with anal incontinence, and developing an instrument for international use.

A single-score version of the PISQ-IR has also been validated. Please note the single-score version is not currently available for translation.
