The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of postpartum voiding dysfunction in women who had a vaginal delivery. Routine investigations were used to assess the prevalence of postpartum urinary retention in women who had a vaginal birth and to classify the obstetric risk factors. In this report, 9.1% of women who had a vaginal delivery experienced postpartum urinary retention. The signs and symptoms of overt retention can be quickly identified. What is understood, though, is that close monitoring of postpartum patients and strict adherence to basic bladder treatment protocols will reduce the likelihood of irreversible bladder dysfunction. As a result, it is important to be mindful of the risk factors and risks associated with postpartum urinary retention.
