Abstract

Violence against women is a global concern, and it is estimated that one in every five women will experience some form of violence in their lifetime. The relationship between physical abuse and physical and psychological symptoms is well-known, however, the association between physical abuse and reproductive health outcomes are limited. The purpose of this study was to document the prevalence of reported abuse and investigate the association between physical abuse and women's reproductive health and pregnancy outcomes. Methods: Descriptive analyses were conducted on the female sample (N=6987) of the Hungarostudy 2002, a nation-wide representative survey. Binary logistic regression was used to determinate the association between physical abuse and reproductive health. Results: 10% of women reported physical abuse, by spouse or relatives. Physical abuse was found to be associated with higher risk for miscarriage, induceed abortion, dysmenorrhea, and sterility after controlling the effect of age, parity status, smoking, body-mass index and treatment for gynecological problems. Conclusions: The relationship between physical abuse and the reproductive health deserves further investigation in order to determine the possible pathways of this association.
