Short intervals between pregnancies

    Default Short intervals between pregnancies
    New Call-to-action
    which supervision diagnosis code do i use when patient presents for routine ob care but she has short intervals between her pregnancies.
    and how many months between pregnancies is considered short intervals?

  2. Default Short Interval
    My OB docs choose O09.89- category for this. The technical definition of a short term interval is less than 18 months between the delivery date and the conception date. However, I find my MDs use this for less than 12 months. Hope this helps.
