However, it remains unknown whether resilience increases during psychotherapy within the comorbid PTSD and SUD population with unique features of dual-diagnosis, including trauma cue-related cravings. We tested whether veterans seeking psychotherapy for comorbid PTSD-SUD reported increased resilience from pre- to post-treatment. We also ...

We report the case of a 46-year-old Chinese male patient who visited our clinic complaining of infertility.

Testicular sperm extraction was performed after genetic counseling. The bilateral ductus deferens and a portion of the epididymis were absent, whereas the remaining epididymis was expanded. Motile intratesticular spermatozoa were successfully extracted from the seminiferous tubule. On histopathology, nearly complete spermatogenesis was confirmed in almost every seminife...

The vast majority of U.S. abortions — 90% — are also performed ...

When Belle Boggs, a writer and educator living and working in North Carolina, wrote her first short story collection, she included a character undergoing fertility treatment. This was before Boggs and her husband explored in vitro fertilization treatments themselves, so the character, to her, was a symbol of yearning and unfulfilled desires. “Not only did I get some of the details of treatment wrong, but I also just ― I feel critical when I look back at the portrayal of that character,” Boggs said in an interview with The Huffington Post. “It bothered me when I looked back, the way I included IVF as th...

This study was the first systematic population‐based investigation to explore quality of life (QOL) risk factors and to examine the moderating role of social support between post‐traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and QOL in Shidu parents. What are the implications for practice? The results found that further social support should be provided as a long‐term mental health intervention strategy to promote QOL in Shidu parents suffering from PTSD. The research may provide information to assist psychologists in post‐disaster mental health interventions with Shidu parents and to inspire decision makers who work with si...
