Working nights or alternating shifts may affect a woman's fertility and risk of miscarriage. 

A large British study found women who worked non-typical or changing shifts had a 33% higher rate of irregular menstruation and 80% increased rate of sub-fertility than those who worked regular hours. 

Women who worked nights only did not experience these fertility problems but were more likely to have a miscarriage than day shift workers.
