Low estradiol levels in women of reproductive age having low sleep variation
TLDR
It is suggested that sleep variation may influence endogenous estrogens, which is of importance for risk of breast cancer, as well as healthy, urban women of reproductive age.
Short interpregnancy interval and low birth weight: A role of parity
TLDR
This study tests if the effect of short IPI on the odds ratio for low birth weight (LBW, <2,500 g) differs across parity status.
Effect of Air Pollution on Menstrual Cycle Length—A Prognostic Factor of Women’s Reproductive Health
TLDR
Air pollution exposure during the monitored menstrual cycle of each of 133 woman of reproductive age was assessed to suggest that air pollution may contribute to fertility problems in women.
The Effect of Prenatal Stress, Proxied by Marital and Paternity Status, on the Risk of Preterm Birth
TLDR
The adjusted effect of perceived prenatal stress differed with respect to parity (confirmed by statistically significant interactions between Marital-Father Data index levels and parity), with a higher magnitude of this effect noted among multiparous versus primiparous women.
Association between PM10 air pollution and birth weight after full-term pregnancy in Krakow city 1995-2009--trimester specificity.
TLDR
PM10 air pollution at levels currently encountered in Krakow city adversely affect infant birth weight; however, the effect seems to be very small; further research is needed to establish possible biological mechanisms explaining the observed relationship.
Parity Conditions the Risk for Low Birth Weight after Maternal Exposure to Air Pollution
TLDR
Testing a hypothesis that multiparous mothers are more prone to have an infant with low birth weight (LBW) after prenatal exposure to air pollution found that parity may be the modifier of the association between pollutants and the risk of LBW.
Paternal investment and low birth weight – The mediating role of parity
TLDR
It is found that in situations of low paternal investment, multiparous mothers face trade-offs between investing in existing versus unborn children, therefore investment in the latter is lower, and such a strategy may benefit maternal fitness due to investment in older children, who have higher reproductive value.
Acknowledgment of reviewers
TLDR
This is the time of year that peer reviewers are saluted for their contribution to the journal and to environmental and occupational health sciences.
Joint effect of particulate matter and cigarette smoke on women’s sex hormones
TLDR
PM10 and tobacco smoking affect ovarian hormones independently and do not interact with each other, and both exposures appear to have estrogenic effects even though women's susceptibility to these effects differs across the menstrual cycle.
