The Relationship between Mental Work and Threatened Abortion

Although some fine detail may have been lost in translation, this trial indicates that stress (mental work) increases the risk of miscarriage.

 

Abstract

Objective: To investigate the relationship between mental work and threatened abortion.

 
Methods: Pregnant women (620 cases,1982ˇ^1999) were divided into mental worker and non-mental worker groups. The incidence of threatened abortion was compared in the two groups.
 
Results: The incidence of threatened abortion was found to be significantly higher in the mental worker group (135 cases, 38%) than that in the non-mental worker group (40 cases, 15%, P 0.01). The higher incidence of threatened abortion was found in the older mental worker group (P 0.05).
 
Conclusion: The nervous mental work is significant associated with threatened abortion.
