MATERIALS AND METHODS: Analytical, prospective, and longitudinal study with pregnant adult women. INCLUSION CRITERIA: chronological age >20 years; singleton pregnancy; RYGB surgery before pregnancy. EXCLUSION CRITERIA: prior malabsorptive or restrictive surgeries; malabsorption syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Ovarian reserve (OR) testing with serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) can provide information about a woman's fertility potential. The aim of this study was to assess interest and knowledge about OR testing and investigate the utility of measuring AMH in women of reproductive age deferring pregnancy. METHODS: Women ages 27-37 years currently delaying childbearing were invited to take a survey regarding attitudes and knowledge about OR testing before and after an AMH measurement with explanation of their results...

BACKGROUND: Limited therapeutic guidelines exist regarding medical therapy, ideal dosing, duration of therapy, or recommendations for timing of endometrial reassessment for women with endometrial intraepithelial neoplasia (EIN) who desire fertility preservation or who are not optimal surgical candidates. We aimed to determine the effectiveness of oral progestogens (OP) versus the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG IUS) in the medical treatment of EIN. METHODS: We retrospectively identified women with EIN at our institution from 2007 through 2014 and compared the outcomes of those treated with OP versus LNG IUS...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have found that transgender, lesbian, and bisexual people report poorer mental health relative to heterosexuals. However, available research provides little information about mental health service access among the highest need groups within these communities: bisexual women and transgender people. This study compared past year unmet need for mental health care and untreated depression between four groups: heterosexual cisgender (i.e., not transgender) women, cisgender lesbians, cisgender bisexual women, and transgender people...

BACKGROUND: To investigate whether women are more likely to report receipt of a mammography recommendation from a doctor or mammography use if they reside in primary care service areas (PCSAs) having a greater number of clinically active primary care physicians. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The analysis used a nationally representative sample of women, aged 40 years and above (n = 10,706 unweighted respondents), extracted from the 2005 National Health Interview Survey...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 10%-20% of women suffer from postpartum depression (PPD), important predictors of which are antenatal stressful life event (SLE) experiences. The association between women's state-level socioeconomic status (SES) and PPD has not been explored. This study aimed to examine whether the association between antenatal SLE and PPD symptoms was moderated by women's state-level SES. METHODS: Data from the 2009-2011 Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) were used...

BACKGROUND: For nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF), novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have been found noninferior to warfarin for stroke/systemic embolization prevention, and major bleeding events. Recent meta-analysis of NOACs versus warfarin in atrial fibrillation (AF) showed that women on warfarin have greater risk of stroke/embolism than men, and when both are treated with NOACs, differences disappear. METHODS: NOACs differ in pharmacologic properties, thus they may differ from one another in their effects on women with AF...

INTRODUCTION: Both bone mineral density (BMD) and breast density are related to reproductive hormone levels. This suggests that BMD and breast density could be meaningfully associated, and serve as surrogate markers for breast cancer risk. However, few studies have investigated the association of BMD with percent mammographic density, making it difficult to draw meaningful conclusions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a systematic review of studies published in electronic databases till April 2016 using the following search terms: "bone density," "bone mineral density," "mammographic breast density," "breast density," and "mammographic density...

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether partner disengagement from pregnancy is associated with adverse maternal and infant outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed data from the 2006-2007 Canadian Maternity Experiences Survey, comprising a cross-sectional representative sample of 6,421 childbearing women. Multiple logistic regression assessed the association between adverse outcomes and three indicators of partner disengagement: (1) partner did not want the pregnancy, (2) partner argued more than usual in the year prior to the baby's birth, and (3) partner was absent at the delivery...

BACKGROUND: Some women who use cyclic hormonal contraception (CHC) suffer from premenstrual symptoms; whether their symptoms differ from women who do not use CHC is not clear. OBJECTIVE: To compare women who use or do not use CHC on perimenstrual symptom timing and change severity. STUDY DESIGN: We analyzed daily symptom ratings from women who requested participation in (Screened Cohort: 103 used CHC and 387 did not) or were randomized in (Randomized Cohort: 41 used CHC and 211 did not) a clinical trial for premenstrual syndrome...

BACKGROUND: We examined the association between unwanted sexual experiences and cervical cancer, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 3, adenocarcinoma in situ, diagnosed ≤25 years of age. METHODS: A case-control study of women ≤55 years who attended gynecological hospitals in Australia between 1983 and 2007. Cases were ≤25 years when diagnosed with disease, control group 1 were "older women" >25 years at diagnosis; control group 2 were "well women" ≤25 years attending preventive health clinics...

There has been much controversy in the scientific literature and lay press about the potential for increased relative risks (RRs) of venous thromboembolism associated with certain contraceptives over others. This commentary reviews the conflicting data on drospirenone's relative venous and arterial risks and summarizes the details of over two billion dollars in litigation surrounding the use of these products. The current legal environment supports litigation focused on small potential RRs, associated with even smaller absolute risks...

OBJECTIVE: This two-part study analyzed data collected from middle-aged (age 44-64) and older women (age 65+) with one or more chronic conditions who completed the National Council on Aging Chronic Care Survey. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Part One analyzed data from 418 women to describe sociodemographics, disease types, and healthcare utilization associated with Internet use among middle-aged and older women with 1 or more chronic diseases. Part Two analyzed data from the 251 Internet-using women to identify the online self-care resources they are using (format, host organization) and for what purposes...

BACKGROUND: Compared to ischemic stroke, sex differences in response to intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) are largely unexplored, and their potential interactions with patient age have not been examined. This study hypothesized that risk for poor outcome is greater in women with increasing age. METHODS AND RESULTS: The Get With The Guidelines(®)-Stroke database was used to assess differences between men and women with ICH. Data from 192,826 ICH patients admitted from January 1, 2009 through March 31, 2014 to 1,728 fully participating sites were analyzed using logistic regression to test interactions between age/sex and outcome...

BACKGROUND: Women with coronary artery disease are less likely to be revascularized than men based on angiography alone. Recent studies have shown that female patients have higher fractional flow reserve (FFR) values for a given severity of coronary stenosis. However, gender differences in coronary revascularization rates following FFR assessment are unknown. METHODS: The nationwide inpatient sample database was used to identify all patients who underwent FFR in the United States between January 2009 and December 2010...

BACKGROUND: In 2007, high-deductible plans were added to the primarily nondeductible Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) integrated health plan, which had covered 100% of device and procedure costs of long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) for members regardless of prescription/visit copay amount. We hypothesized that nondeductible plans and prior LARC use decreased unintended pregnancy. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine if health plan design (nondeductible vs...
