The data were collected with a researcher-made questionnaire include the demographic, pre-operation and post-operation information. These data were analyzed with SPSS 16 and independent T and Chi square tests.

Results: There were significant relations between the incidence of sore throat (p=0.001), muscle pain (p=0.002), rapid return of pain after surgery (p=0.001) and headache (p=0.047) after cesarean section and the type of anesthesia. There was only a significant relation between headache and satisfaction of the pregnant women from cesarean section (p=0.21).
