This study is a cross-sectional study of 110 Malawian women to compare the ultrasonographic and hormonal characteristics of women and without obstetric fistula.
Hypothesis #1: Women with obstetric fistula have a mean cervical length measurement that is at least 10 mm shorter than the mean cervical length measurement of similar women without obstetric fistula.
Hypothesis #2: Evaluation of the hormonal and ultrasonographic characteristics of women with obstetric fistula will allow us to assess the cause of amenorrhea in these women.
