SACOMORI, Cinara; SILVEIRA, Camila; SPERANDIO, Fabiana Flores  e  CARDOSO, Fernando Luiz. Prevalence, repercussion and factors associated with intestinal constipation in women in Florianópolis. J. Coloproctol. (Rio J.) [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.4, pp.254-259. ISSN 2317-6423.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jcol.2014.08.006.

The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of intestinal constipation and its association with sociodemographic and health-related factors in 605 adult women of metropolitan Florianópolis/SC who underwent screening tests for cervical cancer. This is a cross-sectional study in which intestinal constipation was evaluated by Rome III criteria. We used Poisson regression considering p <0.05.

Results:

The prevalence of intestinal constipation according to Rome III was 25.1%. Approximately 80% of women with constipation reported that the problem caused medium/high interference in their lives. In univariate analysis, constipation was associated with: income per capita lower than 1 minimum wage, a poor health state, body dissatisfaction, physical activity during personal commuting and self-report of hemorrhoids. In multivariate analysis and following a hierarchical model, the association persisted only for self-report of hemorrhoids (PR = 4.45, CI = 3.49-5.68). Coping strategies for intestinal constipation in the health care of women are suggested.
