BACKGROUND: Although pregnancy intention is strongly associated with contraceptive use, little is known about the interaction between pregnancy intention and attitude, or how they jointly affect contraceptive use. METHODS: Cross-sectional data from a national survey of women veterans who receive care within the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System were used to examine relationships among pregnancy intention (in next year, in >1 year, never, not sure), attitude toward hypothetical pregnancy (worst thing, neutral, best thing), and contraceptive use among women at risk for unintended pregnancy...

BACKGROUND: Postpartum depression and anxiety are prevalent in the first year after giving birth and can have problematic health outcomes for the mother and infant, although further research is required about the factors that contribute to their development. This study explored the trajectory of depressive and anxiety symptoms across the first postpartum year and their associations with body attitudes, body mass index, and weight retention. METHODS: Participants were 467 women recruited during pregnancy via online forums, in parenting magazines, and at baby and children's markets, or from a large tertiary Australian hospital...

OBJECTIVES: In the United States, 45% of pregnancies continue to be unintended. Although many previous studies have focused on external barriers to contraceptive use such as cost or access, fewer studies have evaluated internal barriers such as individual characteristics. We hypothesize that high self-efficacy for contraception will be associated with use of more effective contraceptive methods. STUDY DESIGN: The analytic sample is 861 privately insured Pennsylvania women aged 18 to 40 years not intending pregnancy for 12 months at enrollment...

OBJECTIVES: Prenatal smoking is the leading preventable cause of poor obstetric outcomes, yet treatment options are limited. Past reviews of prenatal smoking cessation have often grouped all counseling into a single category, which ignores the fact that psychotherapy is distinct from brief counseling. The objective of this study was to compare the effect sizes of two intensive interventions for prenatal smoking cessation: contingency management (i.e., financial incentives for abstinence) and psychotherapy...

BACKGROUND: Racial disparities in birth outcomes represent a significant public health concern in the United States. Factors associated with racism have been posited as a mechanism underlying these disparities. Yet, findings from previous studies are mixed and based on small geographically limited samples. This study aims to examine the relationship between experiences of racism and preterm birth in a population-based sample and to explore the role of adequacy of prenatal care within that relationship...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of contraceptive counseling on the uptake of long-acting reversible contraception (LARC), namely, intrauterine devices and the contraceptive implant, by 3 months postpartum among women with a recent preterm birth. DESIGN: We enrolled patients in a single-blinded, one-to-one, randomized, controlled trial to assess the impact of enhanced family planning counseling immediately after a viable preterm birth in the inpatient setting. Participants received either structured counseling with an emphasis on LARC by a family planning specialist (intervention) or routine postpartum care (control)...

OBJECTIVES: We sought to determine if there is an association between preoperative risk factors as defined by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) physical status score and the route of hysterectomy for benign indications. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Project database was used to determine the route of hysterectomy, using Current Procedural Terminology codes, and associated ASA class...

AIMS: The Veterans Health Administration promotes evidence-based complementary and integrative health (CIH) therapies as nonpharmacologic approaches for chronic pain. We aimed to examine CIH use by gender among veterans with chronic musculoskeletal pain, and variations in gender differences by race/ethnicity and age. METHODS: We conducted a secondary analysis of electronic health records provided by all women (n = 79,537) and men (n = 389,269) veterans age 18 to 54 years with chronic musculoskeletal pain who received Veterans Health Administration-provided care between 2010 and 2013...

BACKGROUND: It is well-established that current measures of pregnancy intentions fail to capture the complexity of couples' lived experiences and decisions regarding reproductive decision making. Despite limitations, these measures guide programs, policy, and clinical practice. Herein, we explore prospective pregnancy acceptability, which captures whether individuals anticipate considering an unexpected pregnancy welcomed, manageable, or okay. METHODS: Individual qualitative interviews were conducted with 50 young (ages 18-24 years) women and their male partners (N = 100) to elucidate prospective pregnancy desires and perspectives on pregnancy planning...

INTRODUCTION: Contraceptives improve women's lives and public health, but many women discontinue their contraceptive method owing to dissatisfaction. An underexamined aspect of contraceptive discontinuation is sexual acceptability, or how contraception affects sexual experiences. Investigators' aims were two-fold: 1) to document changes in multiple domains of women's sexual experiences with their intrauterine device (IUD) or contraceptive implant over time and 2) to examine whether these sexuality factors were associated with method continuation at 12 months...

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer mortality, yet mammography screening rates remain less than optimal and differ by income levels. The purpose of this study was to compare factors predicting mammography adherence across income groups. METHODS: Women 41 to 75 years of age (N = 1,681) with health insurance and with no mammogram in the last 15 months were enrolled to participate in an interventional study. Binary logistic regression was used to estimate multivariable-adjusted odds ratios (ORs) for demographic and health belief factors predicting mammography adherence for each income group: 1) low, less than $30,000, 2) middle, $30,000 to 75,000, and 3) high, greater than $75,000 per year...

BACKGROUND: Although the contraceptive vaginal ring (CVR) has been available in Canada since 2001, overall use and availability remain low compared with other combined hormonal contraceptive methods. We aimed to explore women's experiences with the CVR in Ontario as well as factors that influenced their decisions to choose the method and continue/discontinue use. METHODS: We conducted a multimethod qualitative study that consisted of an anonymous online survey and in-depth telephone interviews with a subset of survey participants...

BACKGROUND: Jail is frequently described as a "revolving door," which can be profoundly destabilizing to people moving in and out of the system. However, there is a dearth of research attempting to understand the impacts of the accumulation of incarceration events on women who use drugs. We examined the association of the frequency of jail incarceration with hardship, perceived health status, and unmet health care need among women who use drugs. METHODS: Our community-based sample included women who use heroin, methamphetamine, crack cocaine, and/or powder cocaine (N = 624) in Oakland, California, from 2012 to 2014...

BACKGROUND: Identifying factors influencing patient experience and communication with their providers is crucial for tailoring comprehensive primary care for women veterans within the Veterans Health Administration. In particular, the impact of mental health (MH) conditions that are highly prevalent among women veterans is unknown. METHODS: From January to March 2015, we conducted a cross-sectional survey of women veterans with three or more primary care and/or women's health visits in the prior year at 12 Veterans Health Administration sites...

BACKGROUND: Prior research documents gender gaps in cardiovascular risk management, with women receiving poorer quality routine care on average, even in managed care systems. Although population health management tools and quality improvement efforts have led to better overall care quality and narrowing of racial/ethnic gaps for a variety of measures, we sought to quantify persistent gender gaps in cardiovascular risk management and to assess the performance of routinely used commercial population health management tools in helping systems narrow gender gaps...

BACKGROUND: Trauma exposure has been linked to risky sexual behavior (RSB), but few studies have examined the impact of distinct trauma types on RSB in one model or how the association with trauma and RSB may differ across race. PURPOSE: The objective of the current study was to examine the contribution of trauma exposure types to RSB-substance-related RSB and partner-related RSB identified through factor analysis-in young Black and White adult women. METHODS: We investigated the associations of multiple trauma types and RSB factor scores in participants from a general population sample of young adult female twins (n = 2,948)...

OBJECTIVES: Veterans are at heightened risk for perpetrating intimate partner violence (IPV), yet there is limited evidence to inform practice and policy for the detection of IPV perpetration. The present study evaluated the accuracy and acceptability of a potential IPV perpetration screening tool for use with women veterans. DESIGN: A national sample of women veterans completed a 2016 web-based survey that included a modified 5-item Extended-Hurt/Insult/Threaten/Scream (Modified E-HITS) and the Revised Conflict Tactics Scales (CTS-2)...

OBJECTIVES: This study uses the abortion visit as an opportunity to identify women lacking well-woman care (WWC) and explores factors influencing their ability to obtain WWC after implementation of the Affordable Care Act. METHODS: We conducted semistructured interviews with low-income women presenting for induced abortion who lacked a well-woman visit in more than 12 months or a regular health care provider. Dimensions explored included 1) pre-abortion experiences seeking WWC, 2) postabortion plans for obtaining WWC, and 3) perceived barriers and facilitators to obtaining WWC...
