Rezumat: Introduction. The lifestyle of each partner, the parentchild relationships and the entourage endanger the normal course of pregnancy through economic, educational and ethnic interests, and in these situations, voluntary abortion occurs. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the factors that determine the decision for the termination of pregnancy. Materials and method. We realized a prospective study that included patients who presented for abortion on request at the “Bucur” Maternity Hospital, “Sf. Ioan” Emergency Clinical Hospital in Bucharest, between April 2018 and June 2018. Those patients were interviewed using a self-questionnaire. Results. The study included 68 patients who presented for abortion on request. The patients from the studied group were between 15 and 45 years old (mean 25.7 years old, standard deviation 7.33). Our analysis identified that 52.9% of the women from our study were married. The majority of women were Orthodox Christian (79.41%). Regarding the ethnicity declared by the patients, the majority were Romanian (60.3%), followed by Roma women (36.8%) and 2.94% undeclared. We made an assessment of termination of pregnancy reasons, and we found out that the main reason were the disagreements with the partner (39.71%), seconded by the lack of employment (in 19.12% of cases). Conclusions. The familial and economic factors were decisive for the voluntary termination of the pregnancy. Many of the women interviewed reported that they would use the method again in the future. Overall, lowincome young women are most likely to request abortion.
Cuvinte cheie: abortion, factors, termination of pregnancy.
