Could H1N1 vaccine be contributing to pregnancy complications and loss?

Considering the H1N1 vaccine? Weigh these testimonies when you make your decision.

Comments are convincing. One especially:

"I'm from a town of 2000 in SD, there are several women pregnant and we are all due within a few weeks of each other. Four of us got the H1N1 vaccine 2 weeks ago and one by one each of us started to have preterm contractions. We are all due in Nov and Dec so we are further along than most of the people that lost their babies. There is no way you can tell us that our preterm labor was not caused by the H1N1 vaccine. It may look like a "fluke" to some people when these women are scattered all over the country but we are talking about 4 of us in our small community. My heart goes out to all of you that lost your babies."

  • Read the drug insert that describes what's in it and possible side effects. It says it wasn't tested on pregnant women and could cause problems. Beyond me why doctors would suggest it. Irresponsible.

  • I wouldn't doubt it. I didn't get it and you couldn't have made me.

  • If you ask a doctor "of course not"...but I read these posts too and did homework on the vaccine...and I personally will not risk it. I know eight people who had it anyway, and it doesn't sound that bad. It's actually less deadly than the seasonal flu. And if it mutates, these vaccines won't do a thing I'm gonna pray, take vitamins, and stay away from people as much as possible.
