The prevalence and potential determinants of dysmenorrhoea and other pelvic pain in women: A prospective study.
CONCLUSIONS: Our data confirm that female pelvic pain is common, and suggests common gynaecological and obstetric causal pathways, but there was no strong evidence supporting a benefit of childbirth for dysmenorrhoea. Further research on obstetric events and pelvic pain is needed, with both being common experiences. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

An evaluation of fetal heart rate characteristics associated with neonatal encephalopathy: A case-control study.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: We sought to identify fetal heart rate (FHR) characteristics that are associated with neonatal encephalopathy (NE). DESIGN: Retrospective case-control study. SETTING: A single medical center in Shanghai, China, 2006-2015. SAMPLE: Women delivering a singleton, non-anomalous infant at ≥36 weeks gestation diagnosed with NE (cases, n=109) were compared to a group of women with unaffected infants (controls, n=233). METHODS: Two physicians blinded to the outcome independently reviewed FHR tracings during the last 30-minutes of tracing prior to delivery. FHR characteristics were...

Mindfulness, cognitive behavioural and behaviour-based therapy for natural and treatment-induced menopausal symptoms: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
Abstract BACKGROUND: During menopause women experience vasomotor and psychosexual symptoms that cannot entirely be alleviated with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Besides, HRT is contraindicated after breast cancer. OBJECTIVES: To review the evidence on the effectiveness of psychological interventions in reducing symptoms associated with menopause in natural or treatment-induced menopausal women. SEARCH STRATEGY: Medline/Pubmed, PsycINFO, EMBASE and AMED were searched until June 2017. SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) concerning natural or treatment-induced menopause, invest...

Postpartum venous thromboembolism prophylaxis may cause more harm than benefit: a critical analysis of international guidelines through an evidence-based lens.
Abstract Based on prediction models and expert opinion, most obstetric venous thromboembolism guidelines recommend low-molecular-weight heparin for many postpartum women, including most delivering by caesarean. Scrutiny reveals major oversights: prediction models are based on studies that report asymptomatic deep vein thrombosis; risk estimates are not adjusted for time exposure; and harm caused by heparin has been overlooked. The benefits of heparin are exaggerated and its harms are under-appreciated. Estimates of the numbers-needed-to-treat and harm are universally lacking. This paper critically reviews the evid...

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that labour is an extremely variable phenomenon and the assessment of cervical dilatation over time is a poor predictor of severe adverse birth outcomes.

The evolving contribution of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) to maternal mortality in Jamaica, 1998-2015: a population based study.
CONCLUSIONS: Medical conditions, especially cardiovascular disease, are increasingly associated with maternal and late maternal mortality than previously. Middle-income countries need to simultaneously improve management of indirect conditions, while redoubling efforts to reduce direct deaths. Post-puerperal medical services should be integrated into routine infant health services to improve continuity of care during this high risk period. This article is protected by copyright.
