The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the role of paternal sperm exposure before pregnancy on the risk of preeclampsia. Seven studies including 7125 pregnant women were included in this systematic review. Overall, the incidence of preeclampsia was similar in women with a higher overall sperm exposure compared to controls, 774/5512 vs 220/1619, respectively. The incidence of preeclampsia was significantly reduced in women with a higher overall sperm exposure when including only nulliparous women, 643/3946 vs 170/725.

A significantly lower rate of preeclampsia was also found for ?12-month sexual cohabitation, 494/3627 vs 123/691. A significantly higher rate of preeclampsia was reported in women not using barrier methods, 315/1904 vs 103/962. Paternal sperm exposure in nulliparous women and sexual cohabitation > 12 months before pregnancy are associated with a decreased risk of preeclampsia.
