The effect of grandmultiparity on chronic pelvic pain and sexual discomfort.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To investigate the effect of grandmultiparity on chronic pelvic pain and sexual complaints. METHODS 71 grandmultiparas and 65 non-grandmultiparas were interviewed. RESULTS Pelvic pain, chronic pelvic pain and other pain compliants were significantly more frequent in grandmultiparas than non-grandmultiparas (P < 0.001). Of the grandmultiparas, 94.4% had pelvic pain and 81.7% had chronic pelvic pain. Coital complaints were observed in nearly half of both groups. CONCLUSION Grandmultiparity has lasting reproductive health consequences in addition to its affect on obstetrical outcome and pelvic support.
