Abstract

The number of induced pregnancy terminations shows a continuous decrease nowadays, whereas the number of live births remains constant (the 'reproductive scissors' open). Though the rate of reliable contraceptives' use is relatively high in Hungary, the number of women seeking abortion is also high. The influencing factors and prevention possibilities of induced abortion were studied. The sociodemographic characteristics of women requesting abortion in Hungary were compared to those attending the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Szeged, and those from Csongrád County. At the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Szeged (2004: 43.0%) and Csongrád county (2003: 53.1%) the number of abortions related to 100 live births are significantly lower as compared to the rest of our country (2003: 56.8%). It is of utmost of importance that the rate of teenagers in the group requesting for abortion is constantly high (women seeking termination of pregnancy under twenty years in 2003: 11.8%), primiparous (2003: 19.7%) and single women (2003: 33.0%). Over the past decades, vast majority of pregnancy terminations were performed due to social reasons (P > 0.05; 98%) and the two rounds of medical counselling did not decrease considerably the rate of abortions in Csongrad county. At the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Szeged most of the women requesting pregnancy termination applied barrier methods in 1999, and the number of women who relied solely on luck has not decreased since 1995 until 1999. The number of induced terminations of pregnancy could be reduced with wide-spread information regarding reliable contraceptive methods. To prevent unwanted pregnancy among teenagers, the media, the family, the school and health-care providers should focus on sexual education.
