Aims: To determine the effectiveness of Syntocinon in prevention of primary postpartum haemorrhage. Study design: It was a randomized clinical trial. Duration: From: 1st Jan 2012 to 30th June 2012 (six months).

Twenty six percent (13) subjects with para-2, 40(20) with para-3 and 34% (17) with para-4 in Group-A while in Group-B, 30%(15) were found with para-2, 36%(18) with para-3 and 34%(17) with para-4. Regarding the status of post partum blood loss, in Group-A 52% (n=26) cases were found with <500 ml/dl blood loss and 48% (n=24) showed >500ml/dl while in Group-B, 40% (n=20) were found <500ml/dl blood loss and 60% (n=30) patients were recorded with bleeding >500 ml/dl.
