Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is a condition when a woman has three or more consecutive pregnancy loss. A loss of pregnancy is described as a clinically recognized pregnancy that ends involuntarily before 20 weeks. Most complications in pregnancy arise from chromosomal, or genetic, defects and are spontaneous occurrences. The main aim of this research is to find out the risk factors associated with Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (RPL). Also, the specific objectives of the study are; to recognize the probable remedial targets to detect the origin of the pregnancy losses, and to provide necessary recommendations regarding organized care for couples with RPL. A descriptive study was conducted for 1 year from July 2014 to June 2015, to find out the cause and consequences of recurrent pregnancy loss. Factors, such as age, environmental and occupational exposure, psychological pressure, chronic endometritis, genetic factors, smoking, thrombophilia screening, uterine imperfections, were some of the risks for Recurrent Pregnancy Loss. Multiple miscarriages can create noteworthy negative mental pressure for couples, and that is why numerous studies are being conducted to improve medicines and reduce the time expected to accomplish an effective and full-term pregnancy. Patients with RPL need to consult with fertility specialists about appropriate exams to clarify the risk factors and treatments to improve the outcomes of pregnancy.

Introduction: The pandemic of Coronavirus has not only affected the lives of humans, but it also affected health education and training programs. With the implementation of social distancing, all the classes in which there's face to face communication has stopped because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This study aimed to assess the perception and satisfaction of the online teaching in obstetrics and gynecology course in 2020 during the COVID-19 crisis. Methods: 92 students at King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia have been involved in the study. We had two groups of students; first group took the lessons traditionally. The second group had taken the lessons via online methods. Results: There was a significant difference between the groups regarding satisfaction about e-learning, score and resource availability. Being more satisfied in groups who had online teaching was more than the other group. It was noted no difference in skills or performance between students of e-learning and those of traditional learning groups. However, students from different groups showed different impressions about the enjoyability of sessions, considering e-learning as a tool for future learning, limitation of student-teacher interaction during the course. Conclusion: E-learning had a significant positive impact on society during the Covid-19 pandemic, and future study systems may change radically accordingly.

Objective: In this study our main goal is to evaluate the predictive factors and maternal and foetal outcome of breech delivery in Rangpur medical college hospital. Method: This prospective observational study was carried out at Rangpur medical college hospital. From July 2019-Deccember 2019 where 51 singleton uncomplicated breech presentation admitted for delivery were included in the study. Results: During the study, mean umbilical cord length in LSCS and vaginal delivery group was 55.3±3.8 cm and 56.2±3.7 cm respectively. Mean placental weight in breech deliveries in LUCS and vaginal delivery group was 645±132 gram and 599±212 respectively. Cornu-fundus position of placental localization was the commonest in both the groups. Regarding the fetal outcome, 42.1% neonates suffered birth asphyxia in vaginal group while 37.5% suffered same problem in LUCS group. Higher (62.5%) percentage of children was born in LUCS group without any complications compared to 52.6% in vaginal group. Higher percentage (42.1%) of neonates needed admission in vaginal delivery group than LUCS group (37.5%) for different complications. 87.5% of LUCS group and 57.8% in vaginal group did not suffer from any maternal complications during delivery. No mortality was reported. Conclusion: From our study we can conclude that, short umbilical cord length and increased placental weight may be the important predictive factors for breech presentation.
