Reproductive disorders (pre mature birth, still birth & metritis) were more prevalent in winter (0.47%) followed by rainy (0.29%) and summer season (0.17%). Abortion (4.09 %) and retention of placenta (2.97%) was more prevalent in fifth parity and least in first parity (1.39% & 0.69%).Postpartum prolapse were more prevalent in fourth parity (4.20%) followed by fifth and more than fifth parity (1.86%).
