A woman who went for an abortion in China was shocked to discover a week later that the fetus was still living in her womb, according to local reports.
Ms. Zhou from Xi & an, mother of two, said the abortion surgeon told her that the operation had been smoothly & # 39;
But when she went for a checkup at a local hospital, she was told that she was still pregnant.
The Chinese woman, Zhou, was surprised to know that she was still pregnant a week after undergoing a surgical abortion in a hospital in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province in northwest China.
She received an ultrasound from a local hospital with her fetus. The abortion surgeon is said to have failed the operation because the surgical equipment was not advanced
The incident occurred in the provincial capital of Shaanxi province, in northwest China, and was recently reported by Shaanxi Radio and television station.
According to the report, Ms. Zhou had unexpectedly become pregnant and decided to have the fetus aborted after consideration.
She underwent surgery at Aviation Industry Corporation of the Xi & # 39; an hospital in China on July 10. It was unclear how many weeks she was pregnant then.
& # 39; When I got home, I felt uncomfortable, so uncomfortable that I decided to go to a hospital near my house a week later for a checkup, & # 39; Mrs. Zhou told the station.
& # 39; After the checkup, the doctor said my fetus was still there, & # 39; the mother added.
She also received an ultrasound report, which she showed the reporter.
Ms. Zhou suffers from a congenital malformation in the womb known as a womb. This means that the inside of her uterus is divided by a muscle or fibrous wall called septum. In the case of Zhou, her cervix has a left and right & # 39; chamber & # 39 ;.
The mother of two has shared her story with the local Shaanxi radio and television station
The woman claimed that the fetus had grown in the left part of her womb, but the abortion doctor had performed the termination in the right part.
When Zhou reported her ultrasound to challenge her abortion surgeon, the surgeon blamed the result of the hospital's medical equipment, saying: & # 39; it was not advanced enough & # 39 ;.
The hospital refused to be interviewed by the TV station, but said they were happy to give Ms. Zhou another free abortion.
Ms. Zhou demanded that the hospital offer financial compensation because she said the medical error had brought her mental stress and forced her to take time off.
She has called the local Consumer Association for help.
Abortions have been legal in China since 1953 after the Communist Party of China amended the law to protect & # 39; women's rights to health and employment & # 39 ;, according to China Population survey magazine.
The number of women undergoing abortions increased in 1980 after the central government banned couples from having more than one child. About 14.37 million women ended their pregnancy in China in 1983.
Latest statistics shows that on average 13 million abortion operations are performed in China every year.
Chinese couples can now legally have two children.
The report did not explain whether Ms. Zhou was pressured to come to the decision because of the family planning policy.
What problems has the policy for one child in China caused?

The policy for one child, combined with a traditional Chinese preference for having sons, has caused such a gender imbalance that from 2015 117 boys per 100 girls were born.
The policy for one child has also left China with a ticking time bomb: a rapidly aging population.
The ambitious nation apparently has become & # 39; old before it became rich & # 39 ;, a frustrating factor for the second largest economy in the world.
China is aging faster than almost every country in recent history Forbes, with reference to the United Nations.
By 2050, China could be confronted with a serious problem labor shortage, because the dependency ratio of pensioners in the mid-21st century could rise to 44 percent, according to the same Forbes article.
According to 2015, China had 222 million people aged 60 or older Xinhua News Agency. The figure accounted for approximately 17 percent of the total population of the country.
