Q: I had preeclampsia (toxemia) in my last pregnancy. What are the odds of getting it again?

A: The risk of recurrence increases if preeclampsia was diagnosed early in pregnancy and if the woman has had preeclampsia in two previous pregnancies. Women with chronic hypertension, for example, have a 70% risk of recurring preeclampsia in the next pregnancy, and women with severe preeclampsia in their first pregnancy have a 45% risk of recurrence.
