Materials and Methods: A descriptive study concerning 1077 pregnant women and failure of pregnancy including abortion and fetal death and its relationship with maternal age, paternal age, parity and previous abortion was carried out. Results: The prevalence of failure of pregnancy, abortion and fetal death was 13.8, 11.4 and 2.4 respectively. High maternal age was the most prevalent factor involved with abortion (21.8 with the age of 40 or older and 10 with age group of 20-30). The prevalence of abortion and fetal death was increased with maternal age, paternal age, previous history of pregnancies (>6 time) and previous abortion.
