However, there was a minor difference between those who had less than five vaginal births.

This method of delivery although associated with complications of anesthesia and surgery has found to be protective against development of urinary incontinence in the long run In this research it was noticed that group of women who reported to have urinary incontinence This augments the findings that women who had more cesarean sections were less likely to report urinary incontinence in later life.

Abstract Context Stress urinary incontinence SUI and urgency urinary incontinence UUI are associated with physical and psychological morbidity, and large societal costs. The long-term effects of delivery modes on each kind of incontinence remain uncertain. Evidence synthesis Pooled estimates from 15 eligible studies demonstrated an increased risk of SUI after vaginal delivery versus cesarean section adjusted odds ratio [aOR]: 1. Four studies suggested no difference in the risk of SUI between spontaneous vaginal and instrumental delivery aOR: 1.
