There is increasing evidence that anxiety occurs frequently during pregnancy and can be one of the most important risk factors and predictors of postpartum depression (PPD). The aim of our study was to investigate whether antenatal anxiety is an independent predictor of PPD. We used the data of 476 women enrolled in a prospective study in a single maternity unit. The first assessment was conducted between 22 and 40 weeks gestation and a second time 8-12 months postpartum. Symptoms were measured using the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) and the State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI)...

Thus, this study's aim was to identify correlations between gender role attitudes (GRA) and PMS status of university students. METHODS: The participants of this descriptive study were 1515 female students from 13 departments of Hacettepe University using stratified sampling method. Data were collected between February and May 2014 using a semi-structured questionnaire, the Premenstrual Syndrome Scale (PMSS), and the Gender Roles Attitude Scale (GRAS)...

INTRODUCTION: Lithium treatment in pregnancy represents a significant dilemma for women and treating health professionals alike. The complexity of risk-benefit analysis is impacted by limited information. METHODS: A cohort study of 33 women with severe mental illness, who were prescribed lithium at any time during the pregnancy, and gave birth between December 2007 and January 2015 at a specialist antenatal clinic in Western Australia. A descriptive comparison for women who continued lithium throughout pregnancy, and those who ceased on discovery of pregnancy was undertaken examining demographic, obstetric, neonatal and psychiatric variables...

INTRODUCTION: Menopause usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, a time when women are likely to be in the paid workforce. Most women have menopausal symptoms and these may impact on daytime function and work performance. This study examines the relationship between reproductive stage, menopausal symptoms and work, and advises how employers can best support menopausal women. METHODS: An online and paper-based survey was completed in 2015-16 by 1092 women (22% response rate) aged 40 years plus employed in three hospitals in metropolitan Australia...

BACKGROUND: Vulvodynia is a frequently missed pathology, often confused with vaginismus. The Q-tip test (QTT) is fundamental for the diagnosis; however, there is lack of data about its performance in asymptomatic women. OBJECTIVE: This study intended to evaluate the QTT for painful vestibular spots in asymptomatic women. METHODS: Q-tips were gently pressed at different areas of the vulvar vestibule to obtain a 0-10 score representing the pain felt...

METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed at our outpatient clinic with natural postmenopausal women. A total of 444 women were included in this study. The basic characteristics of the study population, such as age, gravidity, parity, time to menopause onset and body mass index (BMI) were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: Men and women with a hereditary genetic disease are faced with different options when they plan to become parents. One is pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) which is a combination of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and genetic analysis of the embryo before implantation. The present study focuses on how men and women planning for PGD experience the quality of marital satisfaction when they apply for treatment and again, three years later. METHODS: The study was a prospective cohort study where all couples (n = 22) applying for PGD during 2010 and 2011 were eligible...

INTRODUCTION: Randomised controlled trials are the gold standard in medical research and are challenging to conduct successfully since high numbers of participants are needed to produce robust results. Therefore, it is important to understand what motivates patients to participate in one, particularly in Reproductive Medicine where the conduct of RCTs is rare. Just as it is important to evaluate medical interventions, it is equally important that adjuvant therapies are properly assessed...
