Infertility treatment linked with slightly higher pregnancy complications risk: Study. Pixabay

Women who have undergone infertility treatment, such as in-vitro fertilisation, are more likely to experience severe pregnancy complications, according to a new research.

The complications include severe postpartum hemorrhage and sepsis.Sepsis is a life-threatening illness caused by body’s response to an infection.


Maternal age greater than 40 years and being pregnant with twins or triplets are also linked with a higher rate of these complications.

“We found that the women who received infertility treatment, especially in-vitro fertilisation, were about 40 per cent more likely to experience severe pregnancy complication compared with women who gave birth without any treatment,” said lead author Natalie Dayan from the McGill University Health Centre in Canada.

However, the number of women who develop these complications remains small, suggesting for most women who cannot conceive naturally, this treatment is safe, said Dayan.

For the study, researchers examined 813,719 live births and still-births and identified that 11,546 women conceived through infertility treatment.

The women who conceive with infertility treatment are typically older, report higher incomes, are more often first-time mothers and carry multiple foetuses, said the study, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

During pregnancy, such complications are often sudden and difficult to predict. Hence, it is important to identify women who may be at risk for these “near miss” events so that worse outcomes, including death, may be averted, the study suggested. (IANS)

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
