Antenatal depression affects approximately one in seven pregnancies, with an increasing prevalence across gestation. Data regarding the associations between antenatal depression and adverse pregnancy outcomes yield conflicting results. However, previous studies evaluated the cross-sectional prevalence of depression at various time points, and not the trajectory of depressive symptoms across gestation.

Human papillomavirus vaccination history and diagnosis of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 or more severe lesions among a cohort of colposcoped women in Kaiser Permanente Southern California

Risk of a high-grade lesion in women undergoing colposcopy following an abnormal screening result may be different by human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination status, since vaccinated women are presumably less likely to harbor HPV 16 and 18.

Endometrioma surgery – A systematic review and meta-analysis of the effect on antral follicle count and anti-Müllerian hormone

Accurate pre-operative counseling regarding whether endometriotic cystectomy has a detrimental effect on the ovarian reserve has been a considerable challenge, as studies assessing antral follicle counts (AFC) and anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) levels have reported conflicting results. Our objective was to explore the impact of endometriotic cystectomy on both AMH and AFC measurements, but focusing on prospective studies where both were measured for each woman concurrently (overcoming unmeasured confounding), in the same setting (overcoming surgical technique differences) and at the same three postoperative time points; early (one to six weeks), intermediate (two to six months) and late (nine to eighteen months),...
