In Pregnancy#Symptoms there is a crochane meta-review and an article about general pregnancy conditions. Those sources are more secondary. We should use those sources.
Both sources say that no treatment has been shown to be effective. Small clinical trials don't change that statement, they only show that there is some research going on that could result in a treatment in the future. --18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:56, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
- I just looked what they actually are - and this needs to be removed, or someone has to work on it. You've assumed, it seems to me, that the trials they're referring to are related to the same issue as addressed by the Cochrane review. That is not the case. The Cochrane review is about prevention and treatment during pregnancy. The treatment section here is about after pregnancy - and the first 1998 trial is not in pregnancy. That section isn't making it clear that this is not about treating them during pregnancy, and I made that mistake last night too when I just looked at it quickly. In fact, it's important to note that the first treatment it's talking about is categorized by the FDA as not for use in pregnancy because of risk of harm to fetuses.

I have suffered from stretch marks, due to excercise first-hand. I can supply photographical proof, if needed. - KaOs (MrChaosBones@gmail.com)
