Summary

This research project will look at men's risk factors in relation to infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, total loss (miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death) and congenital malformations with a focus on heart defects.

Abstract:

We know very little about how important men's health and lifestyle are in relation to the risk of miscarriage, stillbirths and congenital malformations. But there is a strong scientific rationale for examining the link between men's health and unwanted pregnancy outcomes. Today's knowledge comes from epidemiological studies of whether paternal age, social and economic inequality and smoking, affect unwanted pregnancy outcomes, clinical findings regarding fertility and sperm quality as well as from genetic / epigenetic research. Fathers can influence the partner's pregnancy outcome via various mechanisms, including psychological and financial support, knowledge of health conditions and lifestyle factors such as smoking, in addition to genetic or epigenetic factors. This research project will look at men's risk factors in relation to infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, total loss (miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death) and congenital malformations with a focus on heart defects.
