Having identified the prevalence and increased risk of masked hypertension in pregnant women, a recent study suggests that an office blood pressure (BP) of at least 125/75 mm Hg in the second half of gestation may be appropriate to indicate out-of-office measurements in high-risk pregnancies.
Lower age at onset of first menstruation poses an increased risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) later in life, possibly driven by adult body mass index (BMI), whereas later menarche is associated with reduced diabetes risk, a study has found.
Women who have premature ovarian insufficiency and are receiving hormone therapy (HT) appear to have poor sleep quality, taking longer to fall asleep and experiencing greater fatigue, according to a recent study.
Supplemental folate intake appears to mitigate the adverse effect of exposure to raised levels of nitrogen dioxide on the likelihood of a live birth in women undergoing assisted reproductive technologies, according to a study.
Hyperinsulinaemia and insulin resistance appear to exacerbate phenotypic characteristics, reproductive endocrine disorders, and glucose and lipid metabolic dysfunction in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients and therefore lead to reduced fertility in these women, a study has found.
Discontinuation of long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) among teens appears to be uncommon and is mostly influenced by contraceptive efficacy in relation to their reproductive values and preferences, according to a recent study.
Systolic blood pressure appears to have a strong association with aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (aSAH) but not with unruptured intracranial aneurysm (UIA), whereas current smoking and female sex are risk factors for both conditions, a study has found.
