Illicit Drug Use May Be Driving Rise in Ectopic Pregnancies in Florida
Date:2/16/2012

ring 1999-2008. And several women tested positive for illicit drug use, including cocaine.

Nationwide, between 1 percent and 2 percent of pregnancies are ectopic, but these abnormal pregnancies account for between 3 percent and 4 percent of pregnancy-related deaths. However, the death rate from ectopic pregnancies steadily declined nationally in the late 20th century through 2007, the latest year for which figures are available.

The study has several limitations, the researchers stressed. Full medical information was not available for the deceased women, and drug testing was not routine during much of the earlier period.

Efforts to educate women on the dangers of drug use before and during pregnancy are essential, the CDC researchers added.

There's more on ectopic pregnancy at the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
