Abstract: 

Background and Objective: Globally, increasing participation of women in the labor market is one of the most important social phenomena. Currently, an exponential number of pregnant mothers are working in industries in the developing countries. In this study, we aimed to analyze all the articles that examined the complications of occupational noise exposure among women.
Materials and Methods: The required data were collected from the international databases such as ScienceDirect, Scopus, ISI, and PubMed, and from the national databases including IranMedex, Magiran, and SID during 1980-2016. We performed the search using the following “occupational exposure”, “women”, “noise effects”, and “pregnancy”.
Results: Studies have shown differences in hearing loss and the description of tinnitus between men and women. Some studies have proposed that the effect of noise, as a risk factor for the incidence of ischemic heart disease and changes in plasma cortisol level, is significantly higher in women than in men. In addition, by causing some changes in maternal endocrine system, noise exposure during pregnancy can lead to fetal growth restriction and acquired hearing loss in the baby. Hypertension, painful menstruation, hormonal disorders, and reduced fertility are among other complications of maternal noise exposure.
Conclusion: Exposure to occupational noise, in addition to hearing loss and physiological effects, can have more consequences in women than in men in all circumstances, especially during pregnancy. Therefore, paying attention to the physiological and even psychological characteristics of women, especially pregnant women, in occupational health monitoring programs and periodic medical examinations is of great significance.
