BACKGROUND: Over 15 million adolescents use the emergency department (ED) each year in the United States. Adolescent females who use the ED for medical care have been found to be at high risk for unintended pregnancy. Given that adolescents represent the largest users of text messaging and are receptive to receiving text messages related to their sexual health, the ED visit represents an opportunity for intervention. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this qualitative study was to explore interest in and preferences for the content, frequency, and timing of an ED-based text message intervention to prevent pregnancy for adolescent females...

INTRODUCTION: One of the hypotheses concerning the etiology of gestational hypertension (GH) and pre-eclampsia (PE) assumes that they develop as a result of placenta malfunctioning at the early stage of pregnancy. Placental dysfunction is also associated with the decreased activity of 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 2 (11β-HSD2), which in normal pregnancy protects the fetus from the excess of maternal cortisol. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to analyze the sequence of HSD11B2, a gene that encodes 11β-HSD2, searching for mutations and haplotypes associated with the increased risk of GH or PE...

BACKGROUND: Worldwide maternal perception of fetal movements has been used for many years to evaluate fetal wellbeing. It is intuitively regarded as an expression of fetal well-being as pregnancies in which women consistently report regular fetal movements have very low morbidity and mortality. Conversely, maternal perception of reduced fetal movements is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes. We sought to gain insight into pregnant women's and clinicians views and experiences of reduced movements...

PURPOSE: Adolescents are at high risk for unintended pregnancy. Given pediatricians' potential role in contraceptive counseling, understanding their attitudes and beliefs and counseling practices about use of long acting reversible contraceptives (LARC) [i.e., etonogestrel implant and intrauterine devices (IUDs)] is vital. METHODS: We interviewed primary care pediatricians (N=23) in a Midwestern city in June-August 2014. We transcribed the interviews, developed a coding schema, and analyzed these qualitative data using a priori and open coding of transcripts...

STUDY QUESTION: Is the risk of severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) similar in a short GnRH antagonist and long GnRH agonist protocol in first cycle IVF/ICSI patients less than 40 years of age?. SUMMARY ANSWER: There is an increased risk of severe OHSS in the long GnRH agonist group compared with the short GnRH antagonist protocol. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY?: In the most recent Cochrane review, the GnRH antagonist protocol was associated with a similar live birth rate (LBR), a similar on-going pregnancy rate (OPR), and a lower incidence of OHSS (odds ratio (OR) = 0...

BACKGROUND: Late-onset fetal growth restriction (FGR) is often undetected prior to birth, which puts the fetus at increased risk of adverse perinatal outcomes including stillbirth. OBJECTIVE: Measuring RNA circulating in the maternal blood may provide a noninvasive insight into placental function. We examined whether measuring RNA in the maternal blood at 26-30 weeks' gestation can identify pregnancies at risk of late-onset FGR. We focused on RNA highly expressed in placenta, which we termed "placental-specific genes...

BACKGROUND: Hypertensive diseases of pregnancy are associated with severe maternal morbidity and remain common causes of maternal death. Recently, national guidelines have become available to aid in recognition and management of hypertension in pregnancy to reduce morbidity and mortality. The increased morbidity related to hypertensive disorders of pregnancy is presumed to be associated with the development of severe hypertension. However, there are few data on specific treatment or severe maternal morbidity in women with acute severe intrapartum hypertension as opposed to severe preeclampsia...

BACKGROUND: Preterm birth (PTB) is a multifactorial disorder, and air pollution has been suggested to increase the risk of occurrence. However, large population studies controlling for multiple exposure measures in high-density settings with established commuter patterns are lacking. OBJECTIVE: We performed a geospatial analysis with the use of a publicly available database to identify whether residence during pregnancy, specifically with regard to exposure to traffic density and mobility in urban and suburban neighborhoods, may be a contributing risk factor for premature delivery...

BACKGROUND: In Uganda, the risk of unintended pregnancies and unsafe abortions remains high due to relatively low contraceptive use. There is paucity of data on knowledge, attitudes, perceptions and practices towards modern contraceptives and, sexual and reproductive health especially among the young female university students. METHODS: A survey was conducted at Makerere University main campus in Kampala, Uganda during April 2014. A team of well-trained and experienced research assistants interviewed female undergraduate students who provided data on socio-demographic characteristics, knowledge, perceptions and attitudes and use of contraceptives, as well as other sexual and reproductive health practices...

OBJECTIVES: Pre-eclampsia (PE) is a disorder of pregnancy characterized by high blood pressure and proteinuria. Transforming growth factor beta-1 (TGF-β1) is an important replicated PE candidate gene, and few studies have evaluated the direct association of TGF-β polymorphisms and risk to PE. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between three SNPs of TGF-β1 and serum level of this cytokine in PE patients and controls. DESIGN AND METHODS: In this study the polymorphisms of the TGF-β1 gene at the coding region, and positions 29T→C (Leu 10 Pro), 74G→C (Arg 25 Pro) and 788C→T (Thr 263 Ile) were studied in 123 PE and 120 normal subjects using PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism PCR-(RFLP) and amplification refractory mutation system (ARMS)-PCR methods...
