Posted November 16, 2018 06:17:18 The average pregnancy lasts only about nine weeks, and most women have to get an abortion in that time, a new study has found.
That’s because the rate of women who have to give birth is too high, says Dr. Michael Gerber, an obstetrician and gynecologist at Johns Hopkins University.
“It’s really a concern in the United States, because the U.S. has one of the highest rates of unintended pregnancies,” he said.
“There are too many young mothers in the country.
We are really pushing the envelope in terms of our pregnancy rate and its impact on women.”
Gerber’s study, which examined the health of 1,000 US women ages 18 to 44, showed the average pregnancy lasted only about seven weeks.
This is the same rate as in Canada, where about 7.6 percent of women give birth.
This was also the rate in France, which has the highest birth rate in the world.
“Women in this country are having to wait longer than they have to,” said Gerber.
“They are getting pregnant earlier than they would like to have, and this is a really difficult situation for them.”
While many women who are not expecting a child are choosing to have an abortion, the average wait for an abortion is almost two weeks, which is much longer than the U,S.
average of about four weeks.
The study found that the average age of the women surveyed was 36 years old.
Women are also more likely to be older, more white and more rural than in the U., said Gerberg.
“We have a higher poverty rate in this part of the world than in most other parts of the globe,” he added.
In fact, only 1 percent of US women had a high school diploma, compared with 12 percent of French women.
“The fact that we are seeing so much poverty in this region is really an important thing to note because we have so many people who are working on the other side of the poverty line,” said Dr. Deborah Tansley, an associate professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at University of Minnesota.
Tansleys research on maternal mortality in the US shows that while most pregnancies end in miscarriage, nearly one-third of all pregnancies do not.
“When we think about the pregnancy rate, we should think about that the woman is just too busy, and she has too much to do,” said Tanssey.
“If you can’t have a child, that can make it difficult for you to get a job, to start a family, or to provide for a family.”
“The reason we have to have a baby is because of the economic hardship that is coming along with it,” said Professor Tansys research assistant, Dr. Sarah Tisch.
“In fact, a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that one-quarter of all women are either in poverty, are in debt, or are unable to get by on a low income.
It is not just a matter of needing a baby, it is a matter about being able to support a family and support yourself.”
Tansies research shows that a lack of income, as well as financial hardship, are factors in a higher risk of pregnancy termination.
“So what we really have to understand is that this is something that affects women from different socioeconomic backgrounds,” said Phoebe Tanssley, who is also a professor of public health.
“These are the sorts of women that are at risk for pregnancy termination.”
Tunsys research showed that women who were born in countries with a high rate of poverty, such as the United Kingdom and Australia, are more likely than women from poorer countries to have had an abortion.
“This is why, in some of those countries, women have not had access to abortions and they are not able to afford them, even though the abortion rate is very high,” said the doctor.
“And the reason is that they are too busy to have the time to get their own children up to date and have those kids up to standard,” she said.
Tunsies research also found that a woman’s age is one factor that could affect whether or not she is able to access an abortion if her pregnancy results in a miscarriage.
Women of childbearing age have a much higher pregnancy rate than those of younger women, and therefore are less likely to have abortions if they are older.
Gerber said he had not heard of this phenomenon before.
“But it is definitely a concern for us.
“That is a lot of work and a lot has to happen. “”
I think it is just a question of having enough time to have your own children,” he continued.
“That is a lot of work and a lot has to happen. “
