Abstract

Background: Repeat abortion is a significant and growing public health problem in Scotland and is associated with poor maternal and perinatal outcomes in future pregnancies. Despite a number of publications in this area, there is a lack of consensus regarding the risk factors for repeat abortion. We aimed to identify the determinants of repeat abortion using a systematic review of quantitative studies.

Methods: A bibliographic search strategy was developed based on the review question – what are the determinant factors for repeat abortions? Papers were identified from searches in MEDLINE; EMBASE; Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials and Cochrane Database for Systematic Reviews with no date or language restrictions. Hand searches and bibliographies of reviews were also completed. Studies were included if they examined the determinants of woman with repeat abortions compared to woman with less or no abortions. Two independent reviewers screened titles, abstracts and full text papers using pre-defined inclusion/exclusion criteria. Data extraction, quality assessment and a narrative synthesis was completed on the included papers.
