...premature births, which usually occur only six percent of the time, will happen more than eight percent of the time when a woman has had a previous D&C procedure.

(Lisbon, Portugal)A procedure used in many abortions and to remove fetal remains after a miscarriage has been connected to subsequent increases in premature births by a new metastudy.

The metastudy combined the results of 22 direct studies of nearly 2 million women who had Dilation and curettage, known conventionally as "D&C." It found women who had a D&C were 69 percent more likely to have a very premature birth (one at earlier than 32 weeks gestation) and 29 percent more likely to have a premature birth between 32 and 37 weeks.

That means that premature births, which usually occur only six percent of the time, will happen more than eight percent of the time when a woman has had a previous D&C procedure.
