O04.5 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of genital tract and pelvic infection following (induced) termination of pregnancy. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code O04 is used to code Abortion

Abortion is the ending of pregnancy by removing a fetus or embryo before it can survive outside the uterus.[note 1] An abortion which occurs spontaneously is also known as a miscarriage. An abortion may be caused purposely and is then called an induced abortion, or less frequently, "induced miscarriage". The word abortion is often used to mean only induced abortions. A similar procedure after the fetus could potentially survive outside the womb is known as a "late termination of pregnancy".
