Benzodiazepine use before conception and risk of ectopic pregnancy
from Human Reproduction
Ectopic pregnancy occurs in 1-2% of the approximately 6.3 million recognized pregnancies in the U.S. every year, resulting in up to 126 000 ectopic pregnancies annually (Hoover et al., 2010; Curtin et al., 2013). Ectopic pregnancy is responsible for 6-13% of all pregnancy-related deaths, and hemorrhage from ectopic pregnancy is the leading cause of pregnancy-related death in the first trimester (Chang et al., 2003; Creanga et al., 2011).
