The mean numbers of pregnancies contracted by these women were 6 to 7 pregnancies. Most of the pregnancies (71, 4%) didn't precede the fistula or the prolapse and after the treatment, 96, 8% of operated women didn't conceive anymore. The delivery mode was normal (73%). In more case, the parents were invested in the childbirth of operated women (23, 8%). The childbirth finished by the birth of healthy children (71, 4%). With regard to the illness and the antecedents of operated women, 68,3% of case of the fistulas and 31,7% of the cases of prolapse were identified without surgical antecedents in the past (87,3%). The evoked reason was the normal childbirth (50%). The consequences of these pathologies were the lack of jobs (57, 1%) and the recurrent urinary infections (50, 8%). The observed change was the low income level after the treatment of the illness (46%). With regard to the therapeutic profile, main source of information for the treatment was the broadcasted information (25, 4%). The reason of delay to the consultation was the lack of the poverty (39, 7%). The sanitary animators (27%) motivated the operated women to consult for the treatment; whereas the follow-up and the accompaniment were done by the sisters and brothers of the victim (27%). The technique Intervention the more practiced was the simple suture (50, 8%), by passing through the vagina without episiotomy (26%).
