Armenian women often induce abortion without consulting doctors

PanARMENIAN.Net - 10 149 abortions were registered in Armenia in 2009.

According to official statistical data, the number of abortions reduced twice in 2000 (11 769 abortions) compared to 1983 (33 158 abortions).

The worst problem today is that Armenian women often induce abortion at home, taking in special medicines without consulting doctors, specialists say.

“You can buy these medicines in drugstores without prescription. However, taking them in may have grave consequences, if not consulted with the doctor,” gynecologist Lusine Titiryan said in a conversation with a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter.

She is also concerned over the increase of abortions among teenagers. “There is no statistical data regarding abortions among women aging 15-20, as these are not registered for most times,” Titiryan said.
