What is Pregnancy Rate?
Pregnancy rate is the number of pregnancies including live births. The average rate of getting pregnant is defined as Pregnancy rate. The number of live births per 1,000 women is the fertility rate. The highest pregnancy rates tend to have the highest percentages of pregnancies ending in live births. Age factors affect the Pregnancy rate. Women aged 30-34 years have the highest pregnancy rates of all age group. The pregnancy rate adjusted for miscarriages and stillbirths. Pregnancy resulting from sexual intercourse covers the menstrual cycle time from some 5 days before until 1 to 2 days after ovulation. About 1.1 million induced abortions and 1 million miscarriages at all gestational periods were reported.
