Hi Anusha, everything has its advantage and disadvantages, it depends on the quantity of medicine. The epidural catheter can also be used to numb the area between the vagina and anus (perineum) just before delivery. Because the amount of medicine given at one time is small, epidural anesthesia wears off during labor unless additional medicine is given. For better illustration once have a talk with your gyne.
