Post-partum retention of urine is not uncommon, often being attributed to adaptive changes during childbirth, bladder wall edema and perineal & pudendal nerve damage. The exact incidence of this problem is not well known. Risk factors like prolonged and obstructed labour, instrumental deliveries are well known risk factors for causing postpartum urinary retention. We report here a case of prolonged post-partum urinary retention which developed without any of these risk factors. There is no consensus for uniform and optimal management of these cases which poses dilemmas to the treating obstetrician.
