Researchers from Penn State College of Medicine, Pennsylvania tested more than 7,000 women who were undergoing IVF from 2000 to 2007 at various hospitals in America. During the study, the researchers calculated daily pollution concentrations for each patient and also assessed air quality exposure for varying periods in the four stages of IVF.

 "Numerous studies have consistently shown a relationship between air pollution and human health, ranging from mortality, cardiovascular disease and other chronic conditions," said co-researcher Dr Duanping Liao. "In the process of searching for the mechanisms responsible for the above associations, we, and others, have reported significant links between air pollution and inflammation and increased blood clotting."

The study details are published in the journal Human Reproduction.
