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...

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...

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...

BACKGROUND: Due to loss of hormonal protective effects, postmenopausal women have an increased cardiovascular (CV) risk. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a well-established risk factor for CV disease, but little is known whether mild-to-moderate kidney dysfunction is associated with atherosclerosis burden in the postmenopausal asymptomatic women. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Subclinical atherosclerosis was evaluated in 125 postmenopausal women with no clinical form of atherosclerosis, by carotid and femoral ultrasonography, ankle-brachial index (ABI), and flow-mediated dilation (FMD)...

BACKGROUND: Although intimate partner violence (IPV) during perinatal period is more common than during other maternal health conditions, it receives less attention within research on maternal mortality rates. Given the risks for maternal mortality because of suicidality, the purpose of this investigation is to examine the risk of suicidal ideation (SI) among postpartum women exposed to IPV. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, participants were recruited between May 2005 and March 2007 from primary care clinics in São Paulo, Brazil...

BACKGROUND: Most women report not receiving information about gestational weight gain (GWG) from prenatal providers, but less is known about other sources of information and their potential impacts on GWG. The purpose of this study was to investigate sources of information about diet, physical activity, and weight control during pregnancy, and the impact of information sources on maternal GWG. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Participants were 183 women with normal weight and 172 women with overweight/obesity who had enrolled in a prenatal lifestyle intervention trial...

OBJECTIVES: We address questions about (1) how college women with a disability experience sexual violence (SV) and intimate partner violence (IPV) across partners, including disability-specific abuse and (2) how SV/IPV impacts psychological, behavioral, physical, and academic life domains. METHODS/DESIGN: Twenty-seven female college students (mean age, 21.2; 66.6% white; 66.6% heterosexual) were randomly sampled from university registrar records. To be eligible for the study, students had to have at least one experience of SV/IPV since age 18 and a disability (88...

BACKGROUND: Advancements in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for treating obstructive coronary artery disease have reduced major adverse events, including mortality. Yet, evidence as to whether women and men experience similar outcomes is mixed. The objective was to examine sex differences in 1-year major adverse cardiac outcomes for the national population of patients undergoing PCI at Veterans Health Administration (VA) cardiac catheterization laboratories. METHODS: All Veterans undergoing PCI at VA hospitals between October 1, 2007 and September 30, 2013 (N = 64,757; Women = 1,040) were included...

BACKGROUND: Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) have been empirically linked to a host of negative health outcomes, both physical and psychosocial. Exposures to ACEs make individuals more susceptible to conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancers, and depression. Many of these conditions do not appear until sometime in adolescence or adulthood and have been linked to premature death. OBJECTIVE: This study explores the association between the number and type of exposure to ACEs in women (mothers) who experienced intimate partner violence and health outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Female cancer patients who are exposed to gonadotoxic chemotherapy are at risk of future infertility. Research suggests that disparities in fertility preservation counseling (FPC) may exist. Previous research is limited by recall bias; therefore, this study examined objective electronic medical chart data regarding FPC at an academic medical center. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included reproductive-aged women (18-45 years old) with a diagnosis of breast, gynecological, or hematological cancer and who were exposed to a gonadotoxic chemotherapeutic agent from 2009 to 2013...
