Surgeons twice as likely to lose a pregnancy than other women: study
Female surgeons experience higher rates of infertility and pregnancy complications than women in the general population, a new US study suggests.
A survey reveals that 42% of female surgeons had experienced pregnancy loss, which was twice the rate in the general population, according to the report published in JAMA Surgery.
Compared with non-surgeon female partners of male surgeons, female surgeons are also far more likely to experience pregnancy complications (48% versus 27%).
