I have 2 children and am currently pregnant with the third. With both of my children, I gave birth vaginally and with an epidural. After delivery, I was completely unable to urinate at all for approx. 2 months. I had all the sensations, saw the urologist several times (all their various tests showed that the bladder should've been operating normally), but to no avail. Neither the OB or the urologist seemed to have a clue about why this happens.
I'm starting to wonder if it's the birth process or the anesthetic itself, and I'm trying to learn b/c if it's the anesthetic it would be worth it for me to do a natural birth rather than suffer for 2 months.
Any suggestions you might have as to where to look for information would be greatly appreciated.
