Comparison of EPDS Scores Among Women with Good Neonatal Outcomes and Adverse Neonatal Outcomes
AbstractA comparative, questionnaire-based study among postpartum patients was conducted using the Edinburgh Postpartum Depression Scale. 80 women who had good neonatal outcomes were compared with 80 women who had adverse neonatal outcomes.

Comparison of Conventional Methods with Newer Diagnostic Modalities to Detect Genital Tuberculosis in Infertile Women
Conclusion35.8% (24/67) of women were diagnosed with genital tuberculosis using the diagnostic criteria. With culture as the gold standard, the positivity of genital TB was 19.4% (13/67). Majority of infertile patients with low index of suspicion clinically were positive for genital tuberculosis. Therefore, all the patients of infertility should be routinely evaluated for genital tuberculosis. PCR and MGIT 960 have shown promising results in the newer methods.
