Abstract3 JO Cases of diagnostic D and C were collected randomly from Gynae unit of Lady Reading Hospital Peshawarfrom January 1990 to January 1991. These were cases of infertility> 49.26 %, menorrhagia 13.22 %, irregularbleeding 29.67 %, Postmenopausal bleeding 5.16 %, primary’ and secondary' infertility 30.96 % and 18.38 %respectively.
