OBJECTIVE: Translation of women's mental health research has yet to impact overall prevalence and burden of Mood Disorders in the United States. The lack of standard measures and methodological coordination across studies has contributed to the slow impact of research on outcomes. The primary aims of this project were to demonstrate the process by which multiple investigators, sites, and settings administered a standard women's mental health questionnaire within a new Women's Depression Network...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the number one cause of death in women. It is estimated that 44 million women in the United States are either living with or at risk for heart disease. This article highlights the recent significant progress made in improving care, clinical decision-making, and policy implications for women with CVD. We provide our perspective supported by evidence-based advances in cardiovascular research and clinical care guidelines in seven areas: (1) primary CVD prevention and community heart care, (2) secondary prevention of CVD, (3) stroke, (4) heart failure and cardiomyopathies, (5) ischemia with nonobstructive coronary artery disease, (6) spontaneous coronary artery dissection, and (7) arrhythmias and device therapies...

BACKGROUND: Little comprehensive literature exists to broadly examine risk factors for emergency department (ED) utilization or inpatient admission after obstetrical delivery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of Medicaid-insured women from 2009 to 2012 who delivered at a regional perinatal center in the Mid-Atlantic. Women were included if Medicaid was the primary payer of record for the delivery and there was continuous 9-month predelivery Medicaid eligibility...

BACKGROUND: Clinically significant weight loss (CSWL) is ≥5% of initial weight. The purpose of the study is to determine factors associated with women achieving CSWL in Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS), a national, nonprofit weight loss program. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of 48,674 females who joined TOPS from 2005 to 2011 and had a birth date in the database. Predictors of CSWL were evaluated using log-binomial regression and adjusted relative risks [99% CI] for participant age, initial weight, number of members per chapter, and chapter age...

The clinical update serves as a brief review of recently published, high-impact, and potentially practice changing journal articles summarized for our readers. Topics include menopause, sexual dysfunction, breast health, contraception, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease. In this clinical update, we selected recent publications relevant to osteoporosis management. We highlight articles on the safety of long-term use of denosumab and bisphosphonates, fracture risk after discontinuing menopausal hormone therapy, calcium intake and cardiovascular risk, as well as the value of repeat dual X-ray absorptiometry scanning to monitor those on osteoporosis treatment...

BACKGROUND: The current investigation is the first large-scale population-based study from France that documents the association between excess body weight and common psychiatric disorders, and examines the influence of gender on the association between excess body weight and these disorders. A recent plan has been implemented in France to treat the rising rate of those who are overweight or obese, and we seek to demonstrate whether integrated treatment of excess weight and psychiatric conditions appears as indicated...

BACKGROUND: Among low-income women with and without HIV, it is a priority to reduce age-related comorbidities, including hypertension and its sequelae. Because consistent health insurance access has been identified as an important factor in controlling many chronic diseases, we estimated the effects of coverage interruption on loss of hypertension control in a cohort of women in the United States. METHODS: We analyzed prospective, longitudinal data from the Women's Interagency HIV Study...

BACKGROUND: Women with physical disabilities increasingly aspire to become pregnant and bear children. Limited information about the potential interaction of their disabling conditions with pregnancy and childbirth exists to guide these women and their clinicians. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The interview guide was created with questions on topics such as pregnancy complications and secondary conditions, the impact of prior surgeries, experiences with pain relief during labor, and the impact on women's independence and participation in life activities...

BACKGROUND: The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends providers engage women aged 40-49 years in shared decision-making (SDM) for mammography. This requires mammography knowledge, adequate time to discuss screening, and self-confidence in doing so. Yet, to date, no studies have assessed provider readiness to engage younger women in SDM. METHODS: An online survey of primary care providers was conducted in Cleveland in 2015. It inquired about knowledge of screening benefits and harms, including the impact of screening on mortality, risk of additional imaging, biopsy, overtreatment following screening, and likelihood of a true-positive result...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 80% of reproductive age women experience physical or emotional symptoms before onset of menses. Of these women, ∼20% experience symptoms severe enough to interfere with social functioning and life activities, and meet clinical criteria for premenstrual syndrome (PMS). More than 100 different symptoms are associated with PMS. Symptom groupings tend to be stable within an individual, but vary distinctly between women. Potential differences in the etiology of symptoms suggest that PMS may have subtypes that represent distinct entities...

BACKGROUND: Vasomotor symptoms are the most commonly reported menopausal symptoms. Hormone therapy has been widely used to relieve postmenopausal symptoms. With studies suggesting an increased risk of cardiovascular events and breast cancer with oral hormone therapy use, there has been reluctance to use it. The transdermal estrogen patch provides relief from menopausal symptoms. However, there are limited data on mortality and cardiovascular outcomes, while on the transdermal estrogen patch...

BACKGROUND: In the United States, racial/ethnic disparities in preterm birth (PTB) are well documented, but explanations for why the disparity persists remain to be fully explored. We examined racial/ethnic differences in the association of maternal antenatal depression with PTB (<37 completed weeks of gestation) risk. METHODS: In a prospective cohort study, participants (n = 2073) included non-Hispanic (NH) black, NH white, Asian, and Hispanic women who received prenatal care at a university obstetric clinic January 2004-March 2010, and delivered at the university's hospital...

BACKGROUND: Heart disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in women. To date, the majority of knowledge regarding heart disease is based on research conducted in men. As a result, a male-oriented model of heart disease constitutes the basis for diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for both sexes. This article reports findings from the first survey of Canadian physicians to examine their knowledge, beliefs, and practices regarding heart disease in women. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This cross-sectional survey, adapted from an instrument used in the United States, was undertaken in the spring of 2015...

OBJECTIVE: Assess obstetrician-gynecologists' knowledge and counseling practices regarding gestational weight gain (GWG). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Questionnaire studies were conducted in 2012 and 2014 sent to practicing obstetrician-gynecologists. RESULTS: Response rates were 111/236 (47%) and 206/474 (43.5%). The majority of respondents agreed (50.0%) or strongly agreed (26.6%) that excessive GWG is a major health concern, often or always calculate the body mass index (BMI) of their patients (79...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition with serious physiological and psychological health consequences. It affects women across their reproductive lifespan and is associated with pregnancy complications, including gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, and large gestational-age babies. PCOS is associated with excess weight gain, which, in turn, exacerbates the health burden of PCOS. Therefore, weight management, including a modest weight loss, maintenance of weight loss, prevention of weight gain, and prevention of excess gestational weight gain, is a first-line treatment for women with PCOS during and independent of pregnancy...

PURPOSE: The use of combined estrogen-progestin menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) has been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer, however, recent observational studies have suggested that the association between MHT and breast cancer may be modified by race. The objective of this study was to investigate the association between MHT use and incidence of invasive breast cancer in Black and White women aged ≥40 years at diagnosis after accounting for racial differences in patterns of MHT use and formulation...

BACKGROUND: In 2014, women represented 19% of HIV diagnoses in the United States. Of these, 78% were among black women and Latinas. Sexual risk behaviors-for example concurrent sex partnerships, nonmonogamous sex partners, and inconsistent condom use-are associated with increased HIV transmission and prevalence; these behaviors have been understudied, collectively, in women. METHODS: To examine HIV-related sexual risk behaviors among sexually active women aged 18-44 years by race/ethnicity and over time, we used data from the 2006-2008, 2008-2010, and 2011-2013 cycles of the National Survey of Family Growth...
