The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between perineal body length and perineal laceration risk in primigravid patients.
Primigravid women with singleton pregnancies in the first stage of labor at the 35th week of gestation were included in the study. The peineal body length of the patients was measured by the same physician.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Perineal Laceration Involving Skin Delivery; Trauma||Other: Primigravid women with singleton pregnancy at 35th week over|
After 35 weeks of gestation, nulliparous women with single gestation were included in the study and genital hiatus and perineal body measurements were taken.
The presence and degree of perineal laceration after birth were determined. Correlation of genital hiatus and perineal body measurements with perineal laceration risk were evaluated.
After birth, vaginal laceration, oxytocin use, fetal birth weight, the presence of episiotomy were recorded.

- Other: Primigravid women with singleton pregnancy at 35th week over
Primigravid women with singleton pregnancy at 35th week over; only observational study will be done in this group and the data will be recorded.
- Perineal body length [ Time Frame: during delivery ]The length of the perineal body will be measured in centimeters.
- perineal laceration [ Time Frame: during delivery ]
Laceration measurement 1.-2.-3.-4. degree. The measurement of laceration will be graded.
- st degree laceration is the tears formed in the vaginal epithelium and perineum skin.
- nd degree laceration includes perineal muscles. 3. Degree lacerations extend to the anal sphinkter complex. In the 4th degree laceration, the anal epithelium / rectal mucosa was also torn.
- genital hiatus length [ Time Frame: during delivery ]The length of the genital hiatus will be measured in centimeters.
