(HealthDay)—The prevalence of self-reported ingesting is decrease amongst pregnant ladies in their second or third trimester in comparison with these in their first trimester, in accordance with analysis revealed in the Aug. 7 challenge of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
Lucinda J. England, M.D., from the CDC in Atlanta, and colleagues estimated the general and trimester-specific prevalence of self-reported ingesting in the previous 12 months, present ingesting, and binge ingesting amongst pregnant women aged 12 to 44 years; co-use of different substances was additionally examined.
The researchers discovered that 64.7 % of pregnant respondents reported previous ingesting (12 months). Current ingesting (a minimum of one drink in the previous 30 days) was reported by 19.6 and 4.7 % of respondents in the primary trimester of being pregnant or their second or third trimester, respectively. Overall, 10.5 and 1.Four % of these in the primary trimester of being pregnant or the second or third trimester reported binge ingesting (consuming 4 or extra drinks on a minimum of one event in the previous 30 days). More than one-third (38.2 %) of those that reported present ingesting additionally reported use of a number of different substances, with tobacco and marijuana used most with alcohol.
“Females could benefit from screening and interventions in pregnancy to reduce alcohol and polysubstance use and from referral for those in need of treatment,” the authors write.
