Our study showed no significant association between recurrence rate and the patient-related factors such as patient's age, menopausal status, menarche age, gravidity, parity, preoperative serum CA125 level, maximum cyst diameter, combined benign gynecological conditions (such as myoma and adenomyoma), combined endometrial abnormalities, or surgical staging (rAFS score).
However, this relationship was absent in multivariable analysis as evidenced by high gravidity being a risk factor for anaemia.
However, there was no statistical difference in terms of age, BMI, gravidity, parity, menopausal status and smoking status between the study and control groups (Table-I and II).

We also stratified the follow up diastolic BP in both groups with regards to different age categories (Table 4) and gravidity categories (Table 5).
In the first binary linear regression and correlation model maternal variable parameters, gravidity, gestational age, number of ANC, household family size, and maternal age were significantly associated with birth weight (Table 2).
This scenario was still observed when age, trimester of the first ANC visit, and gravidity were adjusted for.
In bivariate logistic analysis, demographic and clinical factors such as age, occupation, level of education, gravidity, parity, prolonged labour, and history of diabetes mellitus were not significantly associated with bacterial infection in this study; however, mode of delivery and premature rapture of membrane were strongly associated in both bivariate and multivariate analyses for bacterial infection (p [less than or equal to] 0.05).
Sociodemographic data such as age, marital status, educational level, occupation, and residence and clinical data of neonates and mothers such as gravidity, mode of delivery, duration of labour, ANC visit, bleeding prior to labour, and parity were collected through interview and also from folders using well-structured questionnaire.
