Introduction: There are risk factors causing urinary symptoms associated with childbirth. The aim was to investigate the presence of urinary symptoms in postpartum. Methods: Prospective cohort study was undertaken. The women were evaluated three times. The first interview was face-to-face at 2 days after the childbirth. At 2 and 8 weeks after delivery, the patients were interviewed by telephone. Results: 132 women were divided into two groups according to the mode of delivery: VG (vaginal delivery group) and CG (cesarean group). The average age of the women was 25.54 (±5.65) years in VG and 25.23 (±5.26) years in CG (p = 0.869). The most frequent symptom in both groups was nocturia. Conclusion: urinary symptoms tend to worsen throughout the postpartum period, regardless of the mode of delivery.
