Objectives: To investigate the risk factors for postoperative urinary retention following cesarean section.
Materials and Method: 135 female patients in Ankara Zekai Tahir Burak Womans Health, Training and Research Hospital who underwent
cesarean section were included in the study. Women who had postvoidal residual bladder with a volume of ≥150 ml measured by
ultrasonography were the main group of patients. Women with postvoidal residual bladder with a volume of 4000 gr) (Odds Ratio=0.1, 95%; Confidence Interval=0.0-0.5; p=0.002), birth induction before the cesarean section (Odds Ratio=0.2, 95%; Confidence Interval =0.0-0.8; p=0.027), and the presence of pain in the first urination after removing the urinary catheter (Odds Ratio=92.9, 95%; Confidence Interval =6.6-1299.0; p=0.001).
Conclusion: Postcesarean urinary retention risk increases if there is increased weight gain during pregnancy, macrosomic newborn delivery,
cesarean section subsequent to labor induction, and high pain perception during the first urination after cesarean section.

Key words: Urinary Retention; Cesarean Section; Risk Factors.
