Abstract

SOCIO DEMOGRAPHIC PROFILE AND ACCEPTABILITY TO POST ABORTION CONTRACEPTION AMONG MTP SEEKERS IN A TERTIARY CARE HOSPITAL OF NORTH INDIA

Dr. Agarwal Neelima*, Dr. Gupta Manisha and Dr. Agrawal Alpana

ABSTRACT

Background: Though MTP is a safe procedure and legalized, it is not free from complications and it is dangerous to use it for spacing. Therefore, the present study was undertaken to study the factors influencing MTPs & the subsequent adoption of contraceptive methods following MTP. Methods: This cross- sectional study was performed over one year and included 148 women who underwent MTP at the hospital. The details regarding their socio-demographic profile, reason for seeking abortion and acceptance of post abortal contraception were taken and analyzed by SPSS software. Results: Majority women were below 30 years (72.98%), Hindu (94.59%), housewife (89.86%), married (98.65%) and belonged to low-mid socioeconomic status (93.2%). This data was highly statistically significant (p<0.0001). 78.38% of the patients had two or more living children and 67.50% had at least one or more previous induced abortion (p<0.0001). 89.20 % patients came early for termination of pregnancy below 8 weeks (p<0.0001). Completed family was the most common reason (62.84%) for terminating the pregnancy. Post abortion contraception was accepted by 92.56% women. 85.81% women had no knowledge about emergency contraception and the data was highly statistically significant (p<0.0001). Conclusions: There is need to counsel women of reproductive age group that MTP is not a way to control unwanted birth and it is not free from risk. Eligible couples have to be educated regarding the availability of different methods of contraception and their proper use to avoid pregnancy.

Keywords: Medical termination of pregnancy, MTP seekers, Socio demographic profile, Post abortion contraception, Emergency contraception, Eligible couples.
