Objectives: Study the reasons of abortions and characteristics of women with the history of abortion in anamnesis.

Methods: Questioning of women of reproductive age who live in Almaty and Almaty region and had an abortion history.

Results: Of all abortion cases, 91% of women were urban inhabitants, 75,4% belonged to the age range 26 - 40 years old, 37,7% were in the active reproductive age of 26 - 35 years old. The analysis revealed that 98% of studied women had a higher education or secondary special education, and only 2% didn't have any education. By social status 72% of women were attributed to the employed population group (46% - working population, 26% - students), 72% had history of repeated pregnancy. Among principal reasons of abortion were: socioeconomic factors - 43%, fear to lose the job or fear to interrupt the study - 34%, medical indications - 13%. It was found out that 23% of women did not visit the family planning cabinets, and 43, 3% visited them only during an abortion operation. It was identified that 21% of women had negative perception about hormonal contraception and 15% considered that contraceptives were unreliable methods of family planning.

Conclusion: In all studied cases, an abortion was used as the method of birth control. The decision about abortion depends on the information level of women and their attitude towards modern methods of contraception. It evidences the need in reinforcement of healthcare professionals work and efforts on information and counseling of population on family planning aspects.
