How would a male gynecologist begin to know anything about a woman's orgasm? Easy. In my pre-operative counseling for hysterectomy I discuss sexuality, orgasm, and hysterectomy. And I tell my patient that a year later I'm going to ask her about it. But this is not a controlled scientific study, so before telling you what I am hearing, let's look at some real data.
A new study questions whether the risk of infertility linked to endometriosis is as bad as previously thought.
A new study looks at whether breast density letters are too difficult for the typical woman to understand. Plus: The FDA issues a warning on fluconazole and miscarriage. Also, do irregular menses provide protection against ovarian cancer or increase risk?
Evidence on which to base management of RPL is limited, challenging ob/gyns with patients facing this stressful diagnosis.
A small Danish study examines if a link exists between asthma and infertility. Plus: Can regular exercise during pregnancy prevent maternal hypertension?
A prospective cohort study looked at a possible link.
A new study looks at whether high doses of some hormones are impeding IVF success. Plus: Do progesterone supplements help women with a history of unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss?
A population analysis examines if preeclampsia may serve as a warning sign for heart defects in the neonate. Also, do chlamydia antibodies mean reduced fertility? Plus: Can ovary removal help CVD risk in diabetic women?
The results of a new study on Vitamin D and pregnancy outcome. Plus, Is foam the future of nonsurgical female sterilization? And: Choosing a GnRH dose for ovarian stimulation
Experts present the two sides to this issue, basing their arguments on outcomes data and likelihood of success.
