Para mensuracao da dor foi utilizada a escala de categoria numerica e para caracterizacao a versao brasileira do questionario McGill - Br-MPQ. RESULTADOS: Os valores encontrados na avaliacao da dor foram de media 4,2 e os descritores que melhor caracterizaram a dor foram: dolorida; que repuxa; incomoda; chata; ardida; pica como uma agulhada; latejante; em pressao. CONCLUSAO: A intensidade da dor perineal foi considerada como moderada pelas puerperas. Na caracterizacao da queixa dolorosa os descritores mais citados foram da dimensao sensorial.

Millions of women worldwide undergo perineal suturing after childbirth and the type of repair may have an impact on pain and healing. For more than 70 years, researchers have been suggesting that continuous non-locking suture techniques for repair of the vagina, perineal muscles and skin are associated with less perineal pain than traditional interrupted methods

Abstract Assessment is an essential, but challenging, component of any pain management plan. Nurses who care for postoperative patients quantify and document pain by use of unidimensional scales such as the numeric rating scale, the visual analogue scale, or a verbal descriptor scale. Improvements in pain ratings on these scales are viewed as a welcome result by nurses and doctors. Pain, however, is a multidimensional phenomenon. Furthermore, pain is subjective, and therefore no objective measur...
