Healio (12/1, Tedesco) reports, “Women who have experienced a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy are at a greater risk for” post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) “and should be screened regularly for the condition,” researchers concluded after conducting “a prospective survey study to examine the type and severity of emotional distress that women with an early pregnancy loss (n = 128) experience compared with women with viable ongoing pregnancies (n = 58).” The findings were published online Nov. 2 in BMJ Open.
