There Might Be Blood: A Scoping Review on Women ’s Responses to Contraceptive-Induced Menstrual Bleeding Changes

ConclusionsSubstantial variability exists around how women respond to CIMBCs; these responses are shaped by individual and social influences. Despite variation in responses across contexts and sub-populations, CIMBCs can impact multiple aspects of women ’s lives. Women’s responses to CIMBCs should be recognized as a key issue in contraceptive research, counseling, and product development, but may be underappreciated, despite likely – and potentially substantial – impacts on contraceptive discontinuation and unmet need for modern contracepti on.

We report a case of a 16-year-old female who presented with bleeding diathesis. Peripheral blood film examination was consistent with microangiopathic hemolytic anemia with 7% fragmented red blood cells. The ADAMTS13 level was 40 ng/ml (reference range: 630–850 ng/ml). She responded to plasma exchange therapy and methylprednisolone and was discharged in a stable condition.

This is a case series reporting live births following in vitro fertilization (IVF) after fertility-sparing surgery in patients with borderline ovarian tumors (BOTs). Seventeen patients, in whom fertility-sparing surgery for BOTs followed by IVF was performed from July 1, 2011 to September 30, 2017, in our IVF center, were included. Here we retrospectively present their BOT characteristics and clinical outcomes of assisted reproduction technology (ART) and then discuss the literature on management of patients with BOTs after fertility-sparing surgery. The study sample of 17 patients started IVF-assisted reproduction within ...

CONCLUSION: Higher-quality research is needed to clarify DMPA's side effects and benefits. In absence of such evidence, patient-centered counseling should incorporate the available evidence while acknowledging its limitations and recognizing the value of women's lived experiences.

November 10, 2017In the global health community, we often talk about reaching the “last mile”—generally those who live in the hardest-to-reach places of the world, farthest from the health services they need. But from the point of view of those families, the last mile is in fact the first mile.The global information and communications technology community seems to understand this more than we do in health. Studies  such as this look directly at first-mile issues—that is, “how connectivity looks, feels, and behaves from the subscriber's perspective. ” And researchers have done&n...

Abstract A 20‐year‐old patient with 3 months of amenorrhea presented in the labor room with bleeding per vaginum and having experienced lower abdominal pain for 2 h.

Subsequent vaginal examination confirmed the diagnosis of microperforate hymen. Her urine pregnancy test was positive and an ultrasound examination revealed the presence of retained products of conception in the endometrial cavity. Hymenectomy was carried out to evacuate the r...

Conclusion To conclude, 6 months therapy with 50 mg of mifepristone given weekly is efficacious and acceptable for the treatment of symptomatic leiomyoma, especially in a select group of patients. Although its use as a primary medical therapy is limited due to recurrence of fibroid after stopping treatment, it is useful for perimenopausal women whose myoma would regress after menopause, and younger infertile patients with small-size deep intramural myomas not easily accessible to either hysteroscopic or laparoscopic surgery. It is also beneficial as a preoperative adjunct, in patients with preoperative ...

Conclusion A growing number of today’s children suffer from vaccine damage. Most individuals do not make the connection between health problems and vaccines. When asked about the cause of autoimmune disorders, asthma, allergies, diabetes, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, autism, and other common childhood diseases and illness, the majority of health care providers advise patients that the causes are unknown. Doctors, including most integrative physicians, fail to make the connection to vaccines. It takes one moment to permanently damage the health of an adult or child, but t...
