Placenta previa is the condition of pregnancy in which placenta implants in lower uterine segment, partially or completely covering the internal os. This condition may associate with many risk factors. Because with placenta previa pregnancy becomes high risk and fetomaternal morbidities and mortalities are also increased. By knowing the risk factors which are the main causative factors for placenta previa fetomaternal outcome can be optimized The purpose of this study is to find the incidence of placenta previa, and also determine the risk factors for placenta previa. This is descriptive prospective study. This study was done in tertiary care hospital of Pakistan. In this study total deliveries were 5381, total patient with previa were found 325 (6.03%). The risk factors of placenta previa are age more than 35 years (28.92%), smoking (20.16%), multiparity (44%), uterine scar (60.30%), previous evacuation and curettage (24.30%). According to age distribution to mostly patients about 135 out of 325 were found between age group of 36-40 years with percentage of 41.23%. Distribution of patients accrding to gestational age mostly found between age 33-35 weeks with percentage of 54.76 percent amd according to gravidity mostly found between G5–G7 with percentage of 42.46 percent. Aim of the study is to find out the risk factors associated with placenta previa and also determine the incidence of placenta previa in tertiary care hospital of Pakistan.
