One in four women says they both get pregnant or not

A new study published in the US Maternity and Child Health Journal suggests that for almost one American women's bedroom either gets pregnant or not. This wide range of ambivalence surprised the researchers, who said that some changes in approach to various aspects of women's health were needed.

According to the researchers, if health professionals question women whether they are trying to get pregnant and answer is no, then automatically they are embedded in the group of women who are not trying. However, such women should be treated as if they were likely to conceive and should therefore obtain recommendations, such as ensuring adequate intake of folic acid and limiting alcohol intake.
