ABSTRACT: The practice of undertaking routine intimate examinations in the management of subfertile couples varies among clinicians. An anonymous self-administered mailed questionnaire survey was carried out to determine the current practices followed by clinicians and the rationale supporting their practice. In the absence of large comparative studies, this survey provides expert opinion regarding this practice. The questionnaire was mailed to the Fellows and members of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in the Northern, Yorkshire, West Midlands and Wales regions in the UK. A total of 802 questionnaires were posted, of which 516 were returned, giving an overall response rate of 64%. The responses and comments varied. Some 62% of respondents would routinely perform a pelvic examination on all women presenting with subfertility; 23% would do so only in selected cases and 63% of the clinicians would perform a routine transvaginal ultrasound. The male partners are examined by only 19% of the clinicians. A total of 83% of the respondents were of the opinion that the survey made them think about the role and justification of intimate examinations in greater detail. The practice of intimate examination of subfertile couples varies among clinicians in the survey group. There is a need for large prospective comparative studies to study the value of this examination and related practices in the management of subfertile couples. In the absence of comparative trials, this survey provides expert opinion. It may be suggested that an intimate examination should not be carried out routinely in all subfertile couples. It could be done when it has potential to add value to the management of the patient. A pragmatic approach should be adopted in every clinical situation.Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 12/2007; 27(8):840-4.

ABSTRACT: There are considerable efforts in Kenya to increase awareness of the issues and health risks associated with female genital mutilation (FGM) through educational programmes. The Kenyan government formally outlawed FGM in 2001. This questionnaire-based study aimed to explore attitudes and awareness of FGM in Kenya with particular reference to the law, health complications and educational programmes. A significant decline in the prevalence of FGM was demonstrated and awareness of health complications of FGM shown to be the main factor causing this trend. The need for further efforts to eradicate the practice and the importance of religion and culture in shaping social attitudes was evident. The outlawing of FGM was considered a positive advance but may have the detrimental effect of deterring women from seeking medical assistance for complications relating to FGM.Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 12/2007; 27(8):816-8.

ABSTRACT: This study reviewed abortion-related maternal deaths, from January 2000 to December 2005 at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Enugu, Nigeria, to identify maternal characteristics, abortion types, provider characteristics, complications and causes of death. Abortion was defined as termination of pregnancy before 28 completed weeks of pregnancy. There were 93 pregnancy-related deaths, and 11 were abortion-related. Abortion-related mortality accounted for 11.8% of all maternal deaths. Nine (81.8%) had induced abortions; three (27.3%) were teenagers; five (45.5%) were married; and six (54.5%) were unmarried. Five (45.5%) of the women were nulliparous. Six (54.5%) of the procedures were in private medical clinics. The cause of death was sepsis and haemorrhage in eight (72.7%) and three (27.3%) of the women, respectively. Abortion-related mortality is a major contributor to maternal mortality in our institution, with induced unsafe abortion constituting the bulk of the burden. Improved access to family planning and reproductive health services may reduce abortion-related maternal deaths.Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 12/2007; 27(8):835-7.
