A Note Pregnancy and the Risk of Miscarriage

To study the effect of magnetic fields on the risk of miscarriage, we conducted a population-based prospective cohort study among pregnant women within a large health maintenance organization. All women with a positive pregnancy test at less than 10 weeks of gestation and residing in the San Francisco area were contacted for participation in the study. We conducted in-person interviews to obtain information on risk factors for miscarriage and other potential confounders. All participants were also asked to wear a magnetic field-measuring meter for 24 hours and to keep a diary of their activities. Pregnancy outcomes were obtained for all participants by searching the health maintenance organization’s databases, reviewing medical charts, and telephone follow-up. We used the Cox proportional hazard model for examining the magnetic fieldmiscarriage association. A total of 969 subjects were included in the final analyses.
