PROBLEM/CONDITION: Preconception health is a broad term that encompasses the overall health of nonpregnant women during their reproductive years (defined here as aged 18-44 years). Improvement of both birth outcomes and the woman's health occurs when preconception health is optimized. Improving preconception health before and between pregnancies is critical for reducing maternal and infant mortality and pregnancy-related complications. The National Preconception Health and Health Care Initiative's Surveillance and Research work group suggests ten prioritized indicators that states can use to monitor programs or activities for improving the preconception health status of women of reproductive age...

Because of a previous association of pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) with levonorgestrel, we wished to evaluate the use of levonorgestrel-eluting intrauterine devices ("levonorgestrel intrauterine systems", LNG-IUS) in our University of Utah and Rigshospitalet PTC patients. In our retrospective series, PTC prevalence was approximately 0.18% and 0.15% in the LNG-IUS population versus 0.02% and 0.04% in the non-LNG-IUS population (Utah and Rigshospitalet, respectively), with no significant differences in PTC signs and symptoms among the two groups...

Objective To analyze the risk factors of intrauterine adhesion (IUA) after hysteroscopic resection of endometrial polyps. Methods Totally 359 patients undergoing hysteroscopic resection of endometrial polyps from January 2013 to December 2016 were enrolled in this study. The clinical data of IUA group and non-IUA group were compared. Univariate analysis was performed to identify the risk factors of IUA,and multivariate Logistic regression analysis was further performed to get the independent risk factors. Results Of these 359 patients,IUA occured after operation in 56 patients (15...

OBJECTIVES: Women with HIV infection are mainly of reproductive age and need safe, effective and affordable contraception to avoid unintended pregnancies. The aim of this study was to evaluate contraceptive use and unintended pregnancies in this population in Switzerland. METHODS: A self-report anonymous questionnaire on contraceptive methods, adherence to them, and unintended pregnancies was completed by women included in the Swiss HIV Cohort Study (SHCS) between November 2013 and June 2014...

The literature suggests that women of different races are more or less likely to use certain contraceptive methods and patient race can influence which contraceptive recommendations a provider makes. To explore whether health care providers treat individuals of different races differently, we conducted a preliminary investigation on whether medical students recommended different contraceptive methods for hypothetical patients presenting with the same clinical features who only varied by race. Third- and fourth-year medical students (n=103) at the University of Hawai'i completed an online survey...

BACKGROUND: Ectopic molar pregnancy is a rare phenomenon and has not been reported in the presence of an intrauterine device (IUD). Clinical diagnosis of molar pregnancy is challenging and requires careful follow-up. CASE: A 25-year-old woman (gravida 2, para 0) with a copper IUD in place presented with a positive pregnancy test. Diagnosis of the complete hydatidiform mole was pathologically confirmed after surgery following clinical and sonographic investigations that identified a left-sided ectopic pregnancy...

OBJECTIVE: To describe factors associated with reported pain and assess correlations between participant and provider pain assessments during first trimester vacuum aspiration. STUDY DESIGN: Participants and providers in a trial evaluating music for pain reduction reported procedure-related pain using a 100 mm visual analog scale. RESULTS: The mean participant-reported maximum pain was 65.9±23.0 compared to 41.3±22.0 by provider assessment...

Bisexual parents have been notably absent from prior research on parenting, despite comprising the largest proportion of parents among "lesbian, gay, and bisexual" (LGB) individuals. Indeed, recent national probability data indicate that young bisexual women are more likely than their heterosexual counterparts to report having at least one child. Intentions to have children, patterns of family planning and contraception use, and related issues have important implications for health and healthcare-related decisions and priorities among bisexual parents...

PURPOSE: To quantify magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) distortions on a plastic intracavitary/interstitial applicator with plastic needles at a field strength of 3 T and to determine the dosimetric impact, using patient data. METHODS AND MATERIALS: For 11 cervical cancer patients, our clinical MRI protocol was extended with 3 scans. From the first scan, a multi-echo acquisition, a map of the magnetic field (B0) was calculated and used to quantify the field inhomogeneity...

Loss of efficacy of hormonal contraceptives is of particular concern for women who are overweight or obese. Only recently have clinical trials started to include overweight and obese women in their study populations, limiting the data available on which to make the best prescribing decisions for hormonal contraceptives for these patients. Other methods, such as the copper or levonorgestrel-containing intrauterine device, the etonogestrel implant, and depot medroxyprogesterone acetate, are preferred over combined oral contraceptives, the transdermal patch, and the vaginal ring...

Heavy menstrual bleeding is a common condition among women of childbearing age. Although hysterectomy was the usual approach in acute cases in the past, other minimally invasive therapies or pharmacological alternatives, such as the levonorgestrel intrauterine device have shown to be highly effective. This case report presents the case of a pluripathological patient with acute heavy menstrual bleeding and severe anemia, who was successfully managed with ulipristal acetate, a selective progesterone receptor modulator...

INTRODUCTION: A bioassay based on the detection of beta-glucan, a constituent of the cell wall of fungi, has been successfully used to diagnose fungal infections in a variety of biological fluids but not yet in the amniotic fluid. OBJECTIVE: To determine the diagnostic performance of a beta-glucan bioassay in the detection of Candida species in the amniotic fluid. METHODS: The study population comprised women who had a singleton pregnancy without congenital or chromosomal abnormalities, who experienced preterm labor or preterm prelabor rupture of the fetal membranes, and who underwent transabdominal amniocentesis for clinical indications...

AIM: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) in the long-term treatment of heavy menstrual blood loss in women unrelated to intrauterine pathology. METHODS: One hundred and six parous women aged 33-48 years with recurrent heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) participated in this study. The women were followed up for 24 months and were assessed for intensity of bleeding both for pre- and post-insertion periods. An LNG-IUS was inserted in each patient within 7 days of the start of menstrual flow...

INTRODUCTION: Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are commonly used as a contraceptive method. However, they may cause rare but potentially serious complications such as migration through the uterine wall and gastrointestinal perforation. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report a case of a 26-year woman, carrying an IUD for 2 years, who presented to the emergency with pelvic pain with breakthrough bleeding. Abdominal imaging revealed the presence of two devices the first of which was located in the uterine cavity and the other in the wall of the sigmoid colon associated with a 5-centimeter pelvic collection...

OBJECTIVE: Obesity has increased dramatically in the US in recent decades. Our objective was to explore associations of contraceptive choices of US women, aged 20-44 years, with body mass index (BMI) and relevant covariates. STUDY DESIGN: Data are based on interviews with a national sample of 11,300 women in the 2011-2015 National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG). We analyzed women ages 20-44 at risk of unintended pregnancy. The primary dependent variable was BMI category...
