Annually, this represents over 800,000 people, more than the number of people who die in conflict and by homicide put together. Every suicide is a tragedy that has long-lasting effects on the people left behind and most cases stem from prolonged mental health issues and abuses that are not reported.

Abstract Early pregnancy losses are extremely common with almost 50% of women experiencing a loss in their lifetime.(Farren J, et al. Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2020;222:367e1- e22) Not only do women suffer the short term physical trauma of a miscarriage but multiple studies have revealed a long term psychological impact.(Haghparast E, et al. Pak J Med Sci. 2016;32:1097-101) In a recent study, 24% and 11% of women met criteria for moderate-severe anxiety and moderate-severe depression, respectively one month after a pregnancy loss.(Farren J, et al.

BOSTON (CBS) – It’s estimated that one in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage, and a new study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology finds that many of those women suffer long-term psychological distress. Researchers in London and Belgium looked at more than 650 women who had experienced early loss, either from miscarriage before 12 weeks or from an ectopic pregnancy, where the embryo grows outside of the uterus. One month later, they found that almost a third of women suffered post-traumatic stress, one in four experienced moderate-to-severe anxiety and about 10-percent had moderate-t...

However, the incidence of posttraumatic stress symptoms and the psychologic response specifically to ectopic pregnancies have not been investigated.

In Reply Although we agree with Wisner and Yonkers that our findings can potentially be explained by residual confounding by indication, we have performed several additional sensitivity analyses to validate our results. First, the impact of the diseases for which benzodiazepines are prescribed was addressed in the main analysis where statistical adjustments were made for the diagnoses of the 2 main indications (mood and anxiety disorders and insomnia) and documented proxies of these diseases (concomitant exposure to antidepressants and/or antipsychotics, psychiatrist visits, comorbidities, and emergency department visits a...
