Gravida and Para

In Ob-Gyn files, we usually come across this term Gx Py-a-b-c.  Here it has been explained in simple yet clear manner.

Suppose I say patient is G10 P 7-2-1-9, it means that patient has had 10 pregnancies out of which 7 were full term (y), 2 were premature (a), 1 was abortion/miscarriage/ectopic pregnancy (b), and 9 is the number of living children that patient has (c).
