study of about 2,400 pregnant women between 2000 and 2004, which found that the miscarriage risk was reduced among most age groups of women who experienced NVP for at least half of their pregnancy, with the greatest effects (an 80% reduced risk) among the oldest women.
Controls were matched for age (within 5 years of the case), CD4 count (<250 cells/ml or [greater than or equal to] 250 cells/ml), and duration of NVP treatment (within one year of case).
NVP usually begins to subside 12 to 14 weeks after your last menstrual period, plus your GP can give you an antihistamine to curb nausea.

The difference from the current study cohort was that all 164 children in the first-phase cohort had previously received a single dose of NVP in liquid form at birth, and their mothers had taken NVP in the form of a single pill during labor in an effort to prevent transmission of HIV.
A randomized trial in South Africa reported that administration of the drugs AZT and 3TC during labour along with Sd-NVP followed by AZT and 3TC for four to seven days post-partum reduced the rate of development of resistance to NVP from 60 per cent to about 10 per cent (18).
NVP was then added to all three sample types at low (250 [micro]g/L) and high (2500 [micro]g/L) concentrations.
Since women in poor countries typically nurse for as long as 33 months, time becomes a factor that increases their risk of transmitting NVP resistant viruses.
NVP is in some photopolymers made by Ciba-Geigy in Switzerland and marketed exclusively by 3D Systems Inc.
