We appreciate the opportunity to respond to Dr. Falola and Dr. Tiwari about our report on the rate of UI in young nulligravid women. Because of our recruiting methods, our sample consisted of 2 subgroups: students and nonstudents. An initial examination of the data showed that students had a slightly higher rate of UI. Although Dr. Falola questions the validity of this comparison on the basis of study power, this was not the only difference found between these groups: Students were younger, were more likely to be single and never sexually active, and were less likely to be using COCs and to report urinary tract infections.
