Author(s): Dr. Shalini Chauhan
Abstract: Induced abortion has been legal in India on a broad range of medical and social grounds since 1980 but very often it is being misused for various reasons. Induced abortions especially done in second trimester carries high risk to the patients going for it. Usual complications are uncontrolled bleeding, retained products, infection and injury to the genital organs. Our patient in the study suffered a very unusual complication as a result of which she had to undergo subtotal hysterectomy in young age. Concerning these severe and some unpredictable complications, free availability of MTP kits should be totally banned.
