Summary, in English

A rapidly implemented qualitative study was conducted to investigate the perceptions of women about abortion in Egypt using in-depth interviews with hospitalised patients and focus group discussions with family planning clients and non-contracepting women. The most salient issue confronting the patients (whether the abortion had been spontaneous or induced) was their physical survival. The necessity to return immediately to their daily routines was most troubling to the patients who felt a need to rest and recuperate. The provision of post-abortion contraception was found to be problematic as women believed their bodily balance needed restoring first and that their fertility would not return immediately. The provision of counselling to reduce anxiety and fears, accurate and easily comprehensible information about miscarriage, induced abortion and future fertility and support for the women's need to rest are important aspects of post-abortion care.
