To identify measurement tools which screen for the presence of fear of birth (FOB) and to determine the most effective tool/s for use in clinical practice. Fear or birth (FOB) is internationally recognised as a cause for increasing concern, despite a lack of consensus on a definition or optimal measure of assessment. There is a wide array of FOB measurement tools, however little clarity on which tool should be used to screen for FOB in clinical practice. This review explores the use of tools that are used to screen for FOB and discusses the perceived effectiveness of such tools...

The study addresses this gap in the literature by examining the social and contextual factors that inform contraceptive knowledge, attitudes, and use among young women in the Cook Islands. METHODS: Individual, in-depth interviews were conducted with ten women who became mothers before age twenty...

Interventions largely focus on young women, yet young men may play an important role in mitigating these reproductive health outcomes. This study aims to understand African American male teenagers' views on pregnancy prevention responsibility by qualitatively exploring their attitudes around contraception and condom responsibility...

Infertility is a disease of the reproductive system. It has profound social, economic, psychological, and physical consequences, particularly for women. Given the persistence of preventable or untreated infertility, we assessed the level of attention women's health journals have given to infertility-related concerns. We found a minimal number of articles on infertility in the past 15 years of four women's health scientific journals. We encourage more submissions and subsequent publications on infertility to women's health journals in order to enhance the ability of health educators and women's healthcare providers to promote knowledge and advance awareness of this public health issue...

INTRODUCTION: The influence of deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) on sexual function has been poorly studied. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of DIE on sexual function by administering questionnaires to women. METHODS: Women with a clinical and ultrasound diagnosis of DIE and histological confirmation of endometriosis were included in the study. In interview, women were asked to rate five pain symptoms, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, dyschezia, dysuria and Cronic Pelvic Pain (CPP), on a visual analogue scale (VAS), and sexual function was assessed using the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI)...

OBJECTIVE: Untreated sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can lead to serious health complications, increase susceptibility to contracting further STIs including human immunodefiniceny virus (HIV), and can be transmitted to others. The early diagnosis and treatment of STIs is therefore central to comprehensive STI management and prevention, but this relies on those at risk of STIs presenting for testing. In order to understand STI testing behaviours in view of their improvement, this study aimed to elucidate why people seek STI testing...

The study was performed in one antenatal clinic in central Sweden and one university hospital labor ward...

STUDY DESIGN: A two-phase validation study with a Delphi method questioning content experts (n = 10) on items relevance and clarity as well as its scale and face validity...

STUDY DESIGN: A prospective cohort study of 2,177 unselected pregnant women in five hospitals in Norway. Women were recruited at their standard ultrasound examinations, and data was collected through questionnaires and electronic patient charts...
