In Roman Catholic Christianity, purgatory is the condition, process, or place of purification or temporary punishment in which the souls of those who die in a state of grace are made ready for heaven.[1]

Some other Christian denominations also assert the possibility of an improvement in the soul's spiritual situation following death. The Eastern Orthodox Church believes in the possibility of a change of situation for the souls of the dead through the prayers of the living and the offering of the Divine Liturgy,[2] and many Orthodox, especially among ascetics, hope and pray for a general apocatastasis[3]A similar belief in at least the possibility of a final salvation for all is held by Mormonism.[4] Moreover Judaism also believes in the possibility of after-death purification[5] and may even use the word "purgatory" to present its understanding of the meaning of Gehenna.[6] However, the concept of soul "purification" may be explicitly denied in these other faith traditions.

The word "purgatory" is also used, in a non-specific sense, to mean any place or condition of suffering or torment, especially one that is temporary.[7]

The point is this whole Heaven and Hell story real, or not? After knowing the answer to that one might take into consideration the question you've just asked.
Lets hypothetically think that there is a Hell and a Heaven. Most religious denominations say that your destination has been chosen right afterwards you died, or were in the process of dying. The sins and the good deeds you've done will be inspected by God and his Holy fellows, and then you either end up in Heaven, or in Hell.
I would say that purgatory is a mere joke, as I doubt that you can make your sins undone by merely doing good deeds or getting yourself purified. And then, purgatory would as well mean that one can wash off one's sins, and go to Heaven, even if one killed a many people in one's life. Obviously this would lead to a disequilibrium between Heaven and Hell, as Hell would be automatically nullified, as I doubt that a many would still want to go to Hell when the chance to go to Heaven is given.

Purgatory is a place that the church apparently made up as its abolished now,
when the church was very corrupt the story of purgatory was established and people charged members of the decease money to get their loved ones through purgatory quicker

well explained... purgatory was really just made up by the church in order to implicate fear amongst people who are against them...
