Abstract

A cross-sectional descriptive hospital-based study was conducted at Omdurman Maternity Hospital from January to June 2018 to evaluate the prevalence of urinary symptoms in the postpartum period, where 384 women were included. The most common urinary symptoms were frequency 31%, followed by dysuria 29.7%, feeling incomplete emptying 26.3%, hematuria 21.1% and stress incontinence 19.3%. The majority of patients, 69.8% were delivered by vaginal delivery, 14.3% by elective cesarean section, 12% by emergency cesarean section and 3.9% by instrumental delivery (ventouse and forceps). A significant association was illustrated between the mode of delivery and the emerge of postpartum urinary symptoms. Frequency and terminal dribble were more associated with normal vaginal delivery, frequency and feeling of incomplete emptying associated with elective cesarean section, urine retention and burning micturition were found to be associated with emergency cesarean section. Hematuria was found common in women delivered via an instrumental mode of delivery.
