Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Unlike some animals, there is no season for conception in human beings, yet a marked seasonal variation in the number of deliveries and medical termination of pregnancy has been observed in a study conducted in India. Data used for the analysis was taken from the records of the department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and monthly data on deliveries were taken for 4 years and on MTP were taken for only 3 years. Medical termination of pregnancy had the highest index in the month of April and lowest in the month of November while indices of deliveries were maximum in August, September and October and minor in April, May and June. These findings show maximum number of conceptions occur during the winter months for obvious reasons and therefore the index of deliveries is likely to be maximum during months preceeding winter, i.e., August-October. As the medical termination of pregnancy is permitted only up to 20 weeks of gestation, the patients conceiving during winter months, November-February are likely to report for termination in early summer to late monsoon season.
