Abstract: Introduction: Oligohydramnios refers to reduced amniotic fluid expected for that gestational age. Ultrasound examination is diagnostic and may be described qualitatively (e.g.; normal or reduced) or quantitatively (eg; amniotic fluid index AFI < 5cm). For normal fetal movements and growth and to cushion the fetus and umbilical cord, adequate volume of amniotic fluid is critical. Methodology and results: it was a descriptive study in Department of Obstetrics and gynecology, Umaid Hospital, Jodhpur of Patients attending the Outpatient clinics, Antenatal ward, Labourward of the Department of Obstetrics and gynecology, Umaid Hospital, Dr. S. N. Medical College, Jodhpur. Conclusion: Oligohydramnios is being detected more often these days, due to routinely performed obstetric ultrasonography. In my study I have observed that Gestational hypertension and post dated pregnancies are the commonest causes of reduced amniotic fluid during third trimester. Oligohydramnios is found most commonly found in the primigravidas.
