Brief Summary:
Two groups will be recruited. The first group are pregnant ladies that have unequivocal rupture of fetal membranes that is diagnosed by seeing the amniotic fluid leakage in the vagina. The second group are normal pregnant ladies without rupture of membranes. both groups will be tested by taking vaginal washing fluid. Quantitative and qualitative pregnancy tests will be measured in this fluid.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Premature Rupture of Membrane Diagnostic Test: assessment of beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin assay will be measured in the vaginal washing in two groups. The first group are pregnant women in the second or third trimester. These women have definite rupture of membranes diagnosed by visual leaking of the amniotic fluid from the cervix during speculum examination. The second group are pregnant women with intact membranes. Assessment of both the qualitative and quantitative beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin will be done

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Rupture of membranes group
Pregnant women with definite rupture of membranes will undergo speculum examination. Vaginal washing will be done. The washing fluid will be taken for quantitative and qualitative assessment of beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin.
Diagnostic Test: assessment of beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin
Vaginal washing fluid will be collected and sent for measurement of beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin

Active Comparator: Intact membranes group
Pregnant women with intact membranes will undergo speculum examination. Vaginal washing will be done. The washing fluid will be taken for quantitative and qualitative assessment of beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin.
Diagnostic Test: assessment of beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin
Vaginal washing fluid will be collected and sent for measurement of beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Concentration of beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin [ Time Frame: This outcome will be measured within 20 minutes of collection of vaginal washing fluid. The collection of vaginal washing fluid will be done by an investigator upon admission to the department of Obstetrics ]
    Concentration of beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin will be measured in vaginal washing fluid. The collection of vaginal washing fluid will be done by an investigator


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Presence or absence of positive qualitative pregnancy test [ Time Frame: Qualitative pregnancy test will be done in the vaginal washing fluid by an investigator within 20 minutes from admission to the Obstetrics department. ]
    Qualitative pregnancy test will be done by an investigator in the Obstetrics department
