Collaboration of Care for Women with Epilepsy in their Reproductive Years.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

2 New York University School of Medicine, New York, New York.

Over half a million women of childbearing age have epilepsy, many of which will require family planning care at some point in their reproductive years. Matters relating to contraception, pregnancy, fertility, and sexual functioning are all impacted to varying degrees by the use of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) to treat epilepsy and require active management by a woman's neurologist. It is important that a woman's obstetrician/gynecologist (OBGYN) and internist are aware of the way in which their care may be related to her epilepsy care and how this can be successfully comanaged with her neurologist.

Care and Cancer Screening of the Transgender Population.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

3 Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina.

As sex and gender are assigned at birth before gender identity development, many individuals experience feelings of discordance between their gender identity and their sex and gender assigned at birth. The transgender community has not been well understood by medical and mental health fields. As such, this marginalized and vulnerable community faces multiple barriers to receiving health maintenance and specialized care, both at the community and patient-specific level. Read More

1 Laboratory of Clinical and Experimental Research in Vascular Biology (BioVasc), Biomedical Center, State University of Rio de Janeiro-Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (UERJ), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Background: There is scarce evidence regarding endogenous postmenopausal ovarian testosterone (T) production and estrogen replacement roles in different sexual domains. This study aimed to determine whether lower endogenous T in oophorectomized women that were estradiol (E2)-treated influenced global or specific domains of sexual function. Depressive and cognitive symptoms were evaluated to exclude potential confounders. Read More

Feasibility and Acceptability of e-Screening and Brief Intervention and Tailored Text Messaging for Marijuana Use in Pregnancy.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Jan 18. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

5 Department of Psychology, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia.

Background: There are at present no evidence-based interventions for marijuana use during pregnancy, despite it being by far the most commonly used illicit drug during pregnancy. Lack of treatment-seeking, combined with implementation challenges, has limited the extent to which at-risk women receive interventions of any kind. This study sought to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of two high-reach technology-based interventions: electronic screening and brief intervention (e-SBI) and tailored text messaging, delivered either alone or in combination.

Acute Vaso-Occlusive Pain is Temporally Associated with the Onset of Menstruation in Women with Sickle Cell Disease.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Feb 16;28(2):162-169. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

1 Vanderbilt-Meharry Center of Excellence in Sickle Cell Disease, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tennessee.

Background: Acute vaso-occlusive pain episodes in sickle cell disease (SCD) are associated with increased rates of hospitalization and early mortality. Despite the observation that women have higher rates of acute vaso-occlusive pain episodes than men, sex-specific risk factors for acute vaso-occlusive pain have not been identified. We tested the hypothesis that acute vaso-occlusive pain is temporally associated with the onset of menstruation in women with SCD. Read More

Organizational Savvy: Critical to Career Development in Academic Medicine.

Authors:
Janet Bickel

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Career and Leadership Development Coach, Falls Church, Virginia.

Organizational savvy is critical to career development, but is rarely discussed as a learnable skill. Drawing on >45 years of working closely with Academic Health Center professionals, the author offers an introduction to navigating organizational dynamics that will be especially valuable to women, as they tend to be less effectively mentored than men; mentors may also find this guide of use in coaching these skills. Common misconceptions that interfere with acquiring organizational savvy include assuming that academic medicine is a meritocracy, that hard work will assure success, and that disagreements are personal.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

1 Epidemiology Branch, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, National Institutes of Health, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

Background: Ovarian toxic exposures during early development may contribute to reduced ovarian reserve in adulthood.

Materials And Methods: We explored a range of intrauterine, infant, and childhood factors in relation to a biomarker of ovarian reserve, anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) concentrations, in adulthood. We conducted a cross-sectional exploratory study of 1600 African American women 23-35 years of age residing in the Detroit, Michigan metropolitan area, who had serum AMH measurements (Ansh Labs PicoAMH enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) and no previous polycystic ovarian syndrome diagnosis.

Fecundity and Infertility Among Women with Disabilities in the United States.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Jan 2. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, University of South Carolina , Columbia, South Carolina.

Background: Knowledge of fecundity and infertility in women with a disability (WWD) is limited. This study aims to compare the fecundity and infertility experiences of women with a self-identified disability, in domains of sensory (hearing and vision loss), cognitive (difficulty concentrating, remembering, and making decisions), and physical (difficulty walking or climbing stairs) disabilities, with those without a self-identified disability.

Materials And Methods: Cross-sectional survey data from the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), 2011-2015, were analyzed. Read More

Neck Injury Comorbidity in Concussion-Related Emergency Department Visits: A Population-Based Study of Sex Differences Across the Life Span.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2018 Dec 28. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

1 Toronto Rehabilitation Institute-University Health Network, Toronto, Canada .

Background: The cervical spine region can be especially vulnerable to concurrent injury in concussion, with research suggesting that females may be at greater risk due to their weaker and anatomically distinct necks. The main objective of our research was to study sex differences in the rate of neck injury comorbidity across the life span among patients with a concussion diagnosis in the emergency department (ED) setting, by cause of injury (motor vehicle collisions [MVC] and sports).

Materials And Methods: All patients with a first concussion-related ED visit between fiscal years 2002/2003 and 2011/2012 (inclusive) in Ontario were identified in population-based health administrative data using the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, Tenth Revision, Canada (ICD-10-CA) codes.
