Fetal Growth and Developmental Abnormalities Although evidence is less consistent, exposures accrued during gestation and sensitive periods of fetal organ development may be related to developmental abnormalities/congenital defects. Jedrychowski et al. (2004) observed that not only birth weight is affected; changes in other anthropometric measurements were observed, such as reduction in head circumference. Studies conducted by van den Hooven et al. (2012a) using ultrasound measurements observed that NO2 levels were inversely associated with fetal femur length in the second and third trimester, and both PM10 and NO2 levels both were associated with smaller fetal head circumference in the third trimester.

They found that adjusted odds ratios of conception in the FUMC may be reduced in couples exposed to mean SO2 levels > 40 pg/m3 in the second month before conception. In a previous study with the same population, they have also found an association between PM10 and reduced conception rates (Dejmek et al. 1998). Slama et al. (2013) reanalyzed the data of the study by Dejmek et al. 5, carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (c-PAH), ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) levels, in addition to SO2 on fecundability.
