Women who conceive after a year have a higher chance of giving birth prematurely

The reasons for premature birth are a mystery in nearly half of the cases, Some pre-term births are caused by maternal or fetal stress,// infections, high blood pressure, bleeding or stretching of the uterus.

About 11 percent of the women had to try for more than a year to get pregnant -- the common definition of infertility -- and about half of them eventually turned to fertility treatment.

Among the women who had conceived their first baby within a year, 5.4 percent gave birth prematurely. That compared with 7.4 percent of the women who had trouble but eventually conceived naturally and 7.6 percent of women who had fertility treatment after at least a year of failing to get pregnant.

Once the results were adjusted for factors that influence pre-term birth, including age, women who had trouble getting pregnant were about 40 percent more likely to give birth prematurely than those who conceived easily, the study found.
