INTRODUCTION Postpartum haemorrhage is defined as a loss of more than 500 mL of blood after delivery.1 Postpartum haemorrhage is responsible for around 25% of maternal morbidity worldwide (WHO, 2007). Postpartum haemorrhage can also be a cause of long term severe morbidity with approximately 12% of women who survive postpartum haemorrhage will have severe anaemia.2 This is a case report of a patient who has come with complaints of secondary amenorrhoea three years since last child birth. The patient has a history of atonic postpartum haemorrhage. On examination by USG & MRI, the uterus was hypoplastic.
