Risk factors for ectopic pregnancy : a case-control study in France, with special focus on infectious factors.
A case-control study was conducted in 1988 in seven Paris area maternity hospitals to evaluate the role of several risk factors, particularly infectious factors, in ectopic pregnancy.
Pelvic inflammatory disease confirmed by celioscopy and Chlamydia trachomatis seropositivity appeared to be important risk factors for ectopic pregnancy.
Other risk factors found to be associated with an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy were dose-related cigarette smoking at the time of conception appendectomy, prior tubal surgery induced conception cycle and prior ectopic pregnancy.
