Contrary to the general belief that a majority of pregnant women undergo ultrasonography (USG) only for sex selection, a study shows that 80 per cent of them have given live birth and the remaining had either undergone a pregnancy loss or both live births and abortion. Only 5.4 per cent women who had reported at least one pregnancy loss including still birth, spontaneous abortion and induced abortion, had also undergone an ultrasound test during the reference period.
