Women's Health

A useful review of the key 2004 issues in obstetrics/maternal fetal medicine, gynecology, reproductive endocrinology, and women's health:

In 2004, the National Women's Law Center and the Oregon Health & Science University released a report finding that not a single US state currently meets basic federal goals for women's health set by the US Department of Health and Human Services' Healthy People 2010 agenda. Moreover, the nation as a whole fails except in 2 areas -- mammograms and dental check-ups.

Topics covered include:

  • Women's Health-Obesity

  • Women's Health-Sexual Health

  • Gynecology-Hormonal Contraception

  • Gynecology-Menopausal Hormone Therapy

  • Urogynecology-Pharmacologic Treatment of Overactive Bladder [using drugs, as opposed to surgery]

  • Sexually Transmitted Infections and HIV/AIDS

  • Reproductive Endocrinology-Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, Infertility, and Assisted Reproduction

  • Pregnancy-Depression During Pregnancy

  • Pregnancy-Preeclampsia [high blood pressure during pregnancy]

  • What's In Store for 2005 for Obstetrics and Gynecology

  • Breast and Gynecologic Cancer

  • The End of Tamoxifen? [a breast cancer drug]

  • Reproductive Rights Threatened in the United States

  • Lack of Access to Healthcare

  • Violence Against Women
