Objectives The extensive education on contraceptive

methods, particularly in rural areas of developing countries, play a pivotal

role in preventing of induced abortion. The main purpose of this study was to

determine the major cause of induced abortion in women of west areas in Iran.

Designs and methods The hospital documentary of 848 women

encountering medical examinations due to abortion during recent 2 years, was

studied. Subsequently, by using standard questionnaire, the major causes of

induced abortions were investigated and statistically analyzed.

Results Our findings indicated that the frequency of

induced abortion leading to infectious abortion was very remarkable (480 cases)

and most of them (over 60%) were inhabitants of rural areas who had not

considerable knowledge about contraceptive methods. The used devices and tools

for induced abortion were urethral sound or Foley catheter (56%), hook, clarinet

key or feather (27%), plant extractions, Mg sulfate or Permanganate (9%), and

fork or spoon (8%). In most cases (over 50%) the mean age range was 24 – 38

years old.

Conclusions Based on our results, the frequency of

induced abortion was remarkable among the women population in rural west areas

of Iran. Since the major cause of induced abortion was lacking of contraceptive

methods and poor knowledge on contraceptive methods, the encouragement and

education on contraceptive methods application is necessarily required in

developing countries and particularly in rural areas.
