4 Your Health: Contraceptives link to arthritis; the impact of negative advice on shots

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- The advice women get while they are pregnant may impact how they vaccinate their children.

Researchers in New Zealand, studied over 6,000 mothers with babies.

Women who got discouraging information about vaccines, mostly from friends and family, were much more likely to delay recommended immunizations. In fact, only 57 percent of the infants of women who got negative advice, were immunized on time, compared to 73 percent of those whose mothers who were encouraged to vaccinate.

Birth control pills may be linked to a lower risk of rheumatoid arthritis in women.

A new Swedish study, of over eight thousand women, found those who used oral contraceptives, at any time, were less likely to develop the painful condition. 

Women who took the pill for more than seven years had the lowest risk of arthritis.
