||Infertility and spontaneous abortion among female hairdressers: The Hordaland Health Study
||Dec. 2008, Vol.50, No.12, p.1371-1377. 30 ref.
||This cross-sectional study investigated the risks of negative reproductive outcome among female hairdressers. A total of 16,907 women in their forties were invited to participate; the response rate was 71%. Information on infertility, delayed conception, spontaneous abortions, smoking and education was collected by means of questionnaires. Infertility and spontaneous abortion were higher among female hairdressers than among women in other occupations (adjusted relative risks 1.30 and 1.31 respectively).
