effects of episiotomy worse than the consequences of gaps in childbirthAfter analyzing the research data for 54 years, American scientists have found that episiotomy - tissue incision of the perineum during childbirth hurts a woman more than natural gaps, writes the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). A fairly popular point of view that episiotomy helps women to avoid future problems with incontinence of urine or faeces, as well as pain and discomfort during sexual intercourse, did not find evidence. Review of studies on this topic published between 1950 and 2004, conducted by a team of scientists led by Dr. Katherine Hartmann (Katherine Hartmann) from the University of North Carolina (University of North Carolina) showed that artificial incisions are associated with a high risk of developing various complications than external gaps that occur when the natural course of the generic process. Urinary incontinence is common in women, disadvantaged episiotomy than parous without interference. Also the resumption of sexual life, they had to wait longer first sexual intercourse after childbirth were these women with more intense pain. Estimated Hartmann, annually performed at least 1 million "extra" episiotomies. In the United States since 1983, this interference is not considered routine and is performed only in cases when the child is in danger. Yourself hospitals reported roughly 8 percent of episiotomies, however, Hartmann believes that the real figure is much higher - by the results of research only in hospitals Philadelphia it ranges from 20 to 73 percent.
