Investigating paternal preconception risk factors for adverse pregnancy outcomes in a population of internet users.

Abstract Paternal preconception risk factors such as smoking, exposure to environmental substances, medication use, overweight and advanced age correlate with the occurrence of malformations and birth defects in the offspring. Nonetheless, the prevalence of risk factors for adverse pregnancy outcomes in the male population has been scarcely investigated and no report on preconception interventions targeting prospective fathers is available. We conducted a web-based survey to measure the prevalence of paternal preconception risk factors for adverse pregnancy outcomes in an Italian population of Internet users.

AB  - BACKGROUND: Paternal preconception risk factors such as smoking, exposure to
      environmental substances, medication use, overweight and advanced age correlate
      with the occurrence of malformations and birth defects in the offspring.
      Nonetheless, the prevalence of risk factors for adverse pregnancy outcomes in the
      male population has been scarcely investigated and no report on preconception
      interventions targeting prospective fathers is available. We conducted a
      web-based survey to measure the prevalence of paternal preconception risk factors
      for adverse pregnancy outcomes in an Italian population of Internet users.
      METHODS: Prospective or expectant fathers were enrolled during a four-week period
      through two of the main Italian web-sites dedicated to preconception, pregnancy, 
      childhood and family care. Participants filled in a web questionnaire regarding
      preconception risk factors for adverse pregnancy outcomes. Logistic regression
      analysis was used to explore the predictors of paternal preconception risk
      factors. RESULTS: We enrolled 131 prospective and 205 expectant fathers. More
      than half of the total participants used medications during the preconception
      period, 35% were smokers and 8% were obese. Exposure to environmental substances 
      was declared by almost 20% of the participants, with the group including
      pesticides/herbicides/professional paints being the most prevalent. More than a
      half of the study sample included men aged over 35 years. According to the
      multivariate analysis, smoking and exposure to environmental toxics were less
      frequent among individuals with a university degree (respectively: OR = 0.52; 95%
      CI 0.32-0.84; OR = 0.52; 95% CI 0.29-0.93). Paternal obesity and medication use
      in the preconception period were not associated with any of the independent
      variables. CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of preconception risk factors among male
      population should not be neglected when planning preconception interventions,
      confirming that preconception health must be focused on the couple, rather than
      on women only.
