In this issue of JAH, Choi et  al. [1] report on research examining sexting among sexual minority youth. The results of their study represent a significantly more sophisticated understanding of this behavior, relative to the emergence of the concept of sexting approximately 15 years ago. Back then, in 2005, the Los Angeles Tim es published a news story referencing a phenomenon they called “sext messaging.” Three years later, a survey released by Cosmogirl.com and the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy was the first to examine this behavior in a systematic way.

ConclusionsOverall health status is found to be poor among women during the perinatal period compared with the postpartum period. The study indicates that interventions to address the influencing factors are needed to ensure better quality of life for women both pre- and post-birth. Community-based initiatives, such as awareness building, might address negative factors and subsequently improve health status and reduce adverse health outcomes related to pregnancy and postnatal care.
