ABSTRACT

Domestic violence is a very sensitive issue. It is prevalent worldwide in various forms like physical, emotional and sexual violence. The lack of women’s autonomy and financial dependence towards family members and spouse can lead a woman towards being the survivor of violence. This can lead to forced sex also called marital rape and which causes the rise of unwanted pregnancies and seeking for the abortion services. This study aims to assess the prevalence of domestic violence and its associated factors among women seeking abortion services. A descriptive cross-sectional study was done among 81 women who were seeking abortion services at Paropakar Maternity and Women Hospital. Purposive sampling technique was conducted from Dec 4 2022 to 31 Dec 2022. Structured tool from Nepal Demographic Health Survey, domestic violence questionnaire 2016 was adopted to assess the prevalence of domestic violence and its associated factors in terms of physical, emotional and sexual violence using face to face interview. Descriptive and inferential statistics were performed using Easy R (EZR) version 1.36. The prevalence of domestic violence was 23.5%. Among the respondent who faced domestic violence, emotional violence was faced by all the respondents while physical and sexual violence both accounted for 94.73%. Domestic violence was significantly associated with age of respondent, duration of marriage and number of times abortion done with p<0.05. The risks of having domestic violence were higher among respondents with repeated abortion of 2 and more times.
