Reproductive health is an vital topic for human beings. In the past years, numerous occupational issues have been observed and recommended to be related to different reproductive outcomes of women. Shift work is one such factor, possibly related to a risk of spontaneous abortion (SA) and reduced fertility. Maximum studies about shift work and SA have been done among nurses, as this occupational group has the highest number of female shift workers in maximum countries. Previous studies among nurses from various countries several years back in time have suggested a relationship between shift work and SA.
