Parity and mode of birth and their relationship to general and gynaecological health.


As 32.3% of all deliveries in Australia are caesarean sections, it is important to address the long term consequences of this procedure. This project will compare self-perceived general health, emotional wellbeing and different gynaecological complications such as irregular periods, severe period pain, heavy periods, urinary incontinence, and surgery for hysterectomy, prolapse of vagina, bladder and bowel in groups of Australian women that have delivered vaginally, by caesarean section or not at all.
