Semin Reprod Med 2018; 36: 116-122 DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1676088Dysmenorrhea and noncyclic pelvic pain (chronic pelvic pain) are common in adolescents. The evaluation of teens with dysmenorrhea or chronic pelvic pain is aimed to diagnose possible gynecologic conditions (endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian cysts, and obstruction of the reproductive tract) and nongynecologic conditions (irritable bowel syndrome, interstitial cystitis, and myofascial pain). The management of chronic pelvic pain in adolescents is often more complex than in adult women because both the adolescent and her parents are counseled and ...

In August, The New York Times published a guest op-ed by a man named David Roberts who suffered from severe chronic pain for many years before finally finding relief. The piece immediately went viral, with distinguished news journalist and personality Dan Rather posting it to his Facebook page with the addendum that it could “offer hope” to some pain patients. However, for many of us in the chronic pain community, particularly women, the piece was regarded with weariness and frustration. The first and most prominent source of annoyance for me regarding this piece was the part when the author finally discloses h...

In this study, 54.79% of the participants presented with anxiety and 20.3% with depressive symptoms. Pain symptoms, psychological variables and difficulties in emotion regulation were negatively associated with HRQoL. Mediation models revealed that physical pain, psychological stress and difficulties in emotion regulation explained 55% of the variance in the overall HRQoL, 41% of the variation in physical and 55% of the variation in mental HRQoL. Accordingly, severe physical pain (β = −0.39,P

On Thursday afternoon, the American Health Care Act passed in the House by a slim margin ― and the effect it will have on women specifically could be devastating.  Simply put, the bill would allow states to discriminate against women. Before Obamacare, insurers could consider the following pre-existing conditions: being pregnant, having had postpartum depression, being a survivor of sexual assault, having had a C-section or being a survivor of domestic violence. Under the AHCA, states are allowed to waive the requirement that insurers cover people with pre-existing conditions, meaning if you’re deeme...

Discussion Appendicitis results from a closed loop obstruction of a blind-ending tubular structure arising from the cecum. It is a common cause of abdominal pain. It is the most frequent condition leading to emergent abdominal surgery in pediatrics. The combination of obstruction, edema, bacterial overgrowth, increased inflammatory process and increased intraluminal pressure leads to abdominal pain and possibly perforation. Appendicitis occurs in all age groups but is rare in neonates. The peak age is 6-10 years old. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammatory disease of the uterus, fallopian tubes and adjacent p...

CONCLUSION: The limited research suggests that women presenting with endometriosis are at risk for psychosocial disturbances or psychiatric distress. Whether such disruptions are a consequence of endometriosis, the associated chronic gynaecological pain, or another factor such as inflammation remains to be delineated. In the interim, women presenting with symptoms of endometriosis should also be screened for psychosocial and psychiatric disturbances. PMID: 26629721 [PubMed - in process]
