OBJECTIVES: The aim of the ISY study was to investigate the prevalence of menstrual-related symptoms prior to and/or during menstrual or withdrawal bleeding among women from 12 European countries. METHODS: A 15-min quantitative online survey was conducted in two waves from February to September 2015 among 5728 women aged between 18 and 45 years, with an equal distribution of women using a combined hormonal contraceptive, including regular combined oral contraceptives (COCs) (CHC group, n = 2739) and women using a non-hormonal contraceptive or no contraceptive (non-HC group, n = 2989)...

OBJECTIVES: Unintended pregnancy contributes to morbidities, such as obstetric fistula. Furthermore, after fistula repair, women should avoid pregnancy for a year to prevent its breakdown. Our study objective was to evaluate the contraceptive knowledge, practices and intentions of women undergoing obstetric fistula repair at a centre in Malawi. METHODS: This cross-sectional study used a standardised survey to examine the contraceptive knowledge, practices and intentions of women undergoing obstetric fistula repair in Lilongwe, Malawi, between September 2011 and November 2014...

PURPOSE: We sought to examine whether low-income inner-city expectant women who intend to breastfeed make different contraceptive choices than those who intend to formula feed. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This cross-sectional pilot study surveyed expectant women age 14 years and older receiving prenatal care at MacDonald Women's Hospital, Cleveland Ohio (01 November 2016-15 January 2017). Questions assessed knowledge and attitudes regarding infant feeding and contraception options, and postpartum feeding and contraceptive intentions...

PURPOSE: To identify and assess factors determining the functioning of supply chain systems for modern contraception in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), and to identify challenges contributing to contraception stockouts that may lead to unmet need. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Scientific databases and grey literature were searched including Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effectiveness (DARE), PubMed, MEDLINE, POPLINE, CINAHL, Academic Search Complete, Science Direct, Web of Science, Cochrane Central, Google Scholar, WHO databases and websites of key international organisations...

OBJECTIVES: In Georgia, which has a longstanding, liberalised abortion law, the abortion procedure is generally safe if it is performed in a medical facility. However, when socioeconomic barriers prevent women from seeking safe abortion services, some risk their life by self-terminating an unintended pregnancy. We present a case of maternal mortality after a self-induced medical abortion, with the aim to investigate the underlying non-clinical causes of maternal death and the relevant policy implications...

OBJECTIVES: We present the management of a case of failed medical and surgical management of second trimester pregnancy loss due to pregnancy in a non-communicating rudimentary horn. CASE: A 16-week intrauterine fetal death singleton pregnancy was referred to us after failed medical and surgical termination of pregnancy. Ultrasound confirmed the diagnosis and showed minimal blood clots and fluid in the pouch of Douglas. Laparoscopy showed a soft, enlarged right uterine horn not communicating with the cervix and containing the pregnancy, and a left uterine horn communicating with the cervix and showing a posterior wall perforation...

AIM OF STUDY: To reduce the pain and duration of the intrauterine device (IUD) insertion procedure through minimizing instrumentation and using trans-abdominal sonography (TAS). METHODS: This randomized control trial was conducted in a university hospital and included 102 eligible females, fulfilling the inclusion criteria. They were randomly assigned into two groups via 1:1 computer-based randomization program; the trans-abdominal guided IUD insertion group (n = 51), and the traditional IUD insertion group (n = 51)...

PURPOSE: This retrospective study used medical records from The Health Improvement Network (THIN) and Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) database to evaluate endometriosis (incidence, treatment and need for recurrent invasive procedures) in the general UK population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Women aged 12-54 years between January 2000 and December 2010, with a Read code for endometriosis, were identified in THIN. Cases were validated by manual review of free-text comments in medical records and responses to physician questionnaires...

PURPOSE: As women in developed countries tend to delay childbearing, it becomes more important to understand the relationship of advanced maternal age to birth outcomes. We aimed to estimate the trend in the relationship of advanced maternal age to preterm birth and low birthweight. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analysed 4,264,417 ethnically homogeneous, singleton firstborns, born in hospitals to married couples in South Korea in 1997-2014. We regressed an indicator for preterm birth or low birthweight on advanced maternal age, the baby's sex, advanced paternal age, and a set of socioeconomic status (SES) variables by year...

OBJECTIVES: Medical students represent a group particularly at risk of involuntary childlessness due to their highly demanding careers and university curriculum. The aim of this study was to investigate Serbian medical students' attitudes towards future parenthood and their awareness of fertility issues. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted among fourth year students at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Belgrade, Serbia, between 12 and 16 December 2016...

PURPOSE: To elucidate a possible connection between delinquency and adolescent sexual behaviours in different age groups from 14 to 20 and the role of depression therein. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data were gathered from the cross-sectional Finnish School Health Promotion Study 2010 and 2011 with 186,632 respondents. We first examined the bivariate relationship between delinquency and sexual behaviour, and then proceeded to multivariate models accounting for self-reported depression...

R Heller, A Johnstone, S T Cameron
PURPOSE: The progestogen-only intramuscular injectable Depo-Provera(®) (depot medroxyprogesterone acetate) is an effective contraceptive method, but users need to attend a clinic every 12-13 weeks for a repeat injection from a doctor/nurse. This limits convenience of the method and may affect continuation rates. We conducted a pilot study to examine the feasibility and acceptability of users receiving the subcutaneous form of the contraception injection from pharmacists in the community pharmacy setting...

OBJECTIVE: The study assessed the risk of bacterial vaginosis, Trichomonas vaginalis and Candida albicans infection among new users of either a combined oral contraceptive pill (COC) or the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS). METHODS: This prospective observational study included 430 women, without active vaginitis at inclusion, who were divided into two groups according to their chosen method of contraception: COC group (n = 236) and LNG-IUS group (n = 194)...

BACKGROUND: Perceived discordance of fertility desires may be more common among couples with certain sociodemographic characteristics and may lead to lower contraceptive use. METHODS: Using nationally representative data from adults ages 15-49 in France in 2010, we analysed associations between sociodemographic characteristics, perceived discordance of fertility desires and contraceptive use with design-based logistic regression. RESULTS: Only 8% of participants perceived discordant fertility desires while 92% perceived concordance with partner fertility desire...

OBJECTIVES: In the context of women's health, we examine (1) the role that observational ('real-world') studies have in overcoming limitations of randomised clinical trials, (2) the relative advantages and disadvantages of different study designs, (3) the importance of outcome data from observational studies when making health-economic or clinical decisions, and (4) provide insights into changing perceptions of observational clinical data. METHODS: PubMed and internet searches were used to identify (i) guidance and expert commentary on designing, conducting, analysing, and reporting clinical trials or observational studies, (ii) supporting evidence of the rapid growth of observational ('real world') studies and publications since the turn of millennium in the fields of contraception, reproductive health, obstetrics or gynaecology...
