Menstrual regulation (MR) is manual vacuum aspiration to safely establish non-pregnancy up to 8-10 weeks after a missed menstruation period. One in every ten pregnancies in Bangladesh ends in unsafe abortion and it was one of the five leading cause of maternal mortality. 33% of all births occur in an unplanned way. In Bangladesh a range of close-to-community providers are working simultaneously on MR.
