Purpose: To determine the validity and reliability of IIQ-7 and SF-36 for use in Bangladeshi women. Subjects: (n=20) 20 women between the age of 18-54, living in Bangladesh and identified as having one or more births, either caesarean section or vaginal delivery within the last three years. Materials and Methods: Translation of the IIQ-7 and SF-36 was obtained by a certified Bengali language translator. IIQ-7 and SF-36 Bengali version were completed by 20 Bangladeshi women. Results: Test-retest reliability (ICC=.94-1.0) and internal consistency of both IIQ-7 and SF-36 (Cronbach’s alpha = .94-.99) were good. Conclusion: The Bengali translated SF-36 and IIQ-7 demonstrated good test-retest reliability, internal consistency, construct, concurrent, and convergent validity.
