Interpregnancy interval and birth outcome
The amount of time between pregnancies may have an impact on the likelihood of complications. Both short and long interpregnancy periods (IPI) have been linked to poor pregnancy outcomes, but short intervals have been linked to the majority of negative effects. Since women have some influence over the spacing of their pregnancies, finding out whether the IPI is a significant independent biological risk factor for adverse pregnancy events is essential. Short periods may be avoided with postpartum contraception, but long intervals are more difficult to avoid since a desired pregnancy can be prevented by factors such as infertility, partner availability, economic or occupational problems, or sickness.
