The Shy Bladder and Bowel Scale

Two total scores are derived from the SBBS, a paruresis subscale score (8-items; Q1-8), and a parcopresis subscale score (8-items; Q9-16). Responses are based on a 5-point scale (“None of the time” to “All of the time”; scores 0-4 respectively) with higher values representative of greater paruresis or parcopresis symptoms.
