Induced abortions raise the risk of premature births for future pregnancies, says a research published in the journal BMJ Open. The risk is slightly more among women who have to go through medically induced terminations.
It is not the first time when it has been expressed that abortions do create problem for future pregnancies. However, the study is said to be the first one, which has revealed about risk according to different methods of pregnancy termination.
In order to reach at the above given result, the study researchers have assessed more than 600,000 women, who belonged to Scotland. Lead researcher Prof. Siladitya Bhattacharya with team from the University of Aberdeen, has investigated about the effect of varying termination methods on future pregnancies.
Assessment of the record from 1981 to 2007 revealed that first time abortion raises risk of preterm birth by 37% followed by the risk of miscarriage. In addition, surgical procedure was found to elevate the risk of pre-term births.
"We found that women who had had a previous induced abortion had a higher risk of a spontaneous pre–term birth in their next ongoing pregnancy”, said Bhattacharya. He affirmed that a further study is needed on the matter.
