If a woman has ever sought surgery to regulate her period because of a suspected pregnancy, and if she sought surgery only after trying other methods first, REGLASTSURGLOC indicates the location where she sought the surgery. For women who sought surgery as the first or only method, see REGSURGLOC.

If the woman has ever had an abortion to terminate a pregnancy, this variable refers only to a suspected pregnancy after the most recent pregnancy that was aborted.

The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.
