Özet

A total of 57 pregnant women, who were admitted to the outpatient clinic having high visual analogue scale (VAS) and a history of chronic pelvic pain before pregnancy, were evaluated with the international pelvic pain assessment form (IPPAF). Gynaecological disorders, pain at ovulation, dysmenorrhoea, level of cramps with period and suspicion of endometriosis were determined to be higher in the pre-term group (p < 0.05). Regarding urological disorders, pain when the bladder was full, pain with urination, a positive answer to the question, 'Does your urgency bother you?' and suspicion of interstitial cystitis were also determined to be higher in the pre-term group (p < 0.05). Thus, the total IPPAF scores were significantly higher in the pre-term group (p < 0.05). The pregnant women with a higher total IPPAF score before pregnancy may thus have a higher probability of pre-term labour.
