Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: tramadol
50mg tramadol hydrochloride will be used intramuscularly as an experimental drug for evaluating its safety and efficacy as labor analgesic
Drug: Tramadol Hydrochloride
50mg intramuscularly

Placebo Comparator: distilled water
2ml distilled water intramuscularly will be used as a placebo.
Drug: Distilled Water
2ml intramuscularly

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. visual analogue scale [ Time Frame: at 2nd hour of administration ]
    visual analogue scale i.e scaling of severity of pain from 1 being mildest and 10 being most severe will be assessed at 2nd hour of administration

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. patient satisfaction [ Time Frame: at the end of labor( within 12 hours) ]
    scale of 1-5 including highly satisfied, moderately satisfied ,it is ok ,not satisfied ,highly unsatisfied

  2. fetal distress [ Time Frame: during labor ]
    fetal tachycardia (heart rate more than 160) or fetal bradycardia (heart rate less than 100)

  3. duration of 1st and 2nd stage of labor [ Time Frame: 1st and 2nd stage ]
  4. women with side effects like postpartum haemorrhage, nausea, vomiting and increased sleepiness [ Time Frame: till the end of labor ]
    increased risk of postpartum haemorrhage, nausea , vomiting and sleepiness may be associated with use of tramadol

  5. neonatal safety in terms of apgar score and nicu admission [ Time Frame: apgar score at 0 and 5 min ]
  6. need for caesarean section or instrumental delivery [ Time Frame: during labor ]
    emergency caesarean section or need for forceps or vacuum application
