Title:
Factors Associated with Elective Termination of Pregnancy Among Taiwanese Women With Pregnancy-Related Nausea and Vomiting
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) The purpose of this study was to explore the status and factors associated with elective termination of pregnancy among Taiwanese women with pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting (NV). A cross- sectional and retrospective research design, using a structured questionnaire, was conducted. A total of 388 pregnant women who had NV and without complication during her previous pregnancy, as well as made a prenatal clinical visit in southern Taiwan were recruited for this study. Results of ?2 test and Fisher's exact test found that (1) there was statistically significant differences between “elective termination of pregnancy” and occupation, planned/unplanned pregnancy, and gravidity. Women who are housewife, unplanned pregnancy or multigravidity more intend to have a termination of pregnancy; (2) there was statistically significant differences between “elective termination of pregnancy” and “whether lack of husbands’ support or not” and “women’s relationships with their husbands was influenced or not.” When pregnant women with NV felt that they lack of their husbands’ support, or NV influence women’s relationships with their husbands, they more attempt to have a termination of pregnancy. The results of this study could increase health care professionals more understand the experience of pregnant women with NV. It also could facilitate health care professionals to more concern this issue and then provide a suitable assistance based on the family-center care to these women.
