What is a perineal tear?

Perineal tears during childbirth are uncommon and most cases are satisfactorily treated. However, while tearing of the perineal tissue is regarded as a natural part of giving birth, errors do occur. Tears can also occur when there has been a failure to cut an episiotomy. Tears can be missed and not treated, leading to complications. The severity of a tear can also be misdiagnosed or the repair may not be undertaken correctly.

Perineal tears are categorised into 4 groups ranging from simple tearing of the skin (the least serious) through to tearing of the anal sphincter (the most serious).

Complications can include incontinence, painful sexual intercourse, a fistula and psychological distress.
