Aggie J Yellow Horse, Alexis R Santos-Lozada
OBJECTIVES: We investigated the patterns of foreign-born Hispanic health convergence to U.S.-born Hispanics using an allostatic load index, a subjective biological risk health profile, and we explored whether the health convergence patterns differ by sex. METHODS: The analytic sample consisted of 3,347 Hispanics from the pooled 2005-2010 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. We used negative binomial regression models to investigate the association between duration in the United States and the allostatic load index, while controlling for potential covariates...

BACKGROUND: Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is common among primary care patients. We assessed the extent to which Veterans Health Administration (VA) primary care patients with AUB are receiving guideline-adherent primary care. METHODS: We identified women with AUB presenting to primary care providers across four VA health care systems from June 2013 to September 2015. We performed a structured abstraction of electronic medical record data for 15 indicators of guideline-adherent AUB care...

INTRODUCTION: Low-income and young women experience disproportionately high rates of unintended pregnancy. Traditional measures of socioeconomic status may not be appropriate indicators of financial status, particularly during emerging adulthood. This study investigates the relationship between financial strain and contraceptive use, focusing on the differential effects by age group. METHODS: Multinomial logistic regression analyses assessed the relationship between financial strain and contraceptive use in a national sample of U...

BACKGROUND: It is well-established in the United States that incarceration negatively influences women's health, and researchers have called for examinations of the health effects of criminal justice contact more broadly. This study uses the behavioral model for vulnerable populations to document the prevalence of illness and health risks for recently arrested women, and examines potential ways that illness and health risks are associated with health service use across health care settings...

BACKGROUND: Harassment of servicewomen during military service has been well-documented, but harassment of women veterans in Veterans Affairs (VA) health care settings has not been studied systematically. We assessed the prevalence and impacts of harassment among women veterans who use VA health care. METHODS: From January to March 2015, we conducted computer-assisted telephone interviews of randomly sampled women veterans with three or more primary care and/or women's health visits at 1 of 12 VA medical centers...

OBJECTIVES: Our objective was to explore how mothers' attitudes and relationship with their daughters may impact the cervical cancer prevention behaviors of daughters with diverse sexual orientations. METHODS: We examined 8,143 mother-daughter dyads from the Nurses' Health Study 2 and Growing Up Today Study. During the daughter's adolescence, each mother reported her beliefs about the importance of regular Pap testing for her daughter, the frequency of communication with her daughter about Pap testing, her beliefs about Pap testing and human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines, and her acceptance of sexual minorities (e...

BACKGROUND: Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is a common women's health complaint. However, the quality of primary care (PC) management of AUB is unknown. Our objective was to develop quality indicators for Veterans Health Administration (VA) PC assessment and management of AUB. METHODS: We drafted candidate indicators based on comprehensive review of the scientific literature, including published consensus guidelines. Then, we convened a national panel of nine experts including PC providers, obstetrician-gynecologists, VA policy stakeholders, and quality measurement experts, and used a modified Delphi panel process...

Sarah C M Roberts, Kirsten M Thompson
AIMS: Researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently estimated the number of women at risk for alcohol-exposed pregnancies (AEPs) as 3.3 million per month. The number of women at risk was widely interpreted as the actual number of AEPs. The actual number of AEPs may be easier to interpret and may be more a more relevant public health metric for evaluating efforts to reduce AEPs. We estimated the expected actual number of AEPs among U.S. women 15-44 years of age and the expected actual number of alcohol-exposed births (AEBs)...

INTRODUCTION: Factors that occur between consecutive pregnancies may influence repeated excessive gestational weight gain (GWG) and infants born large-for-gestational age (LGA). We examined interpregnancy interval, weight retention, and GWG in women's first pregnancy as predictors of excessive GWG and LGA in women's second pregnancy. METHODS: We used data from women's first two live births during the First Baby Study, a 3-year prospective observational cohort of first-time mothers (N = 549)...

BACKGROUND: We sought to determine whether gender disparities exist in the prehospital management of chest pain (CP) or out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) among patients who accessed the emergency medical services (EMS) system. METHODS: We obtained 2010-2013 data from the National Emergency Medical Services Information System and identified all EMS activations for CP or OHCA by adults 40 years of age or older. We selected American Heart Association medications and procedures to manage cardiovascular events...

BACKGROUND: It has been reported that women have higher 30-day readmission rates than men after acute coronary syndrome (ACS). However, readmission after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ACS is a distinct subset of patients in whom gender differences have not been adequately studied. METHODS: Hawaii statewide hospitalization data from 2010 to 2015 were assessed to compare gender differences in 30-day readmission rates among patients hospitalized with ACS who underwent PCI during the index hospitalization...

BACKGROUND: A large body of research has documented disparities in health and access to care among sexual minority populations, but very little population-based research has focused on the health care needs among pregnant sexual minority women. METHODS: Data for this study came from 3,901 reproductive-age (18-44 years) women who identified as lesbian or bisexual and 63,827 reproductive-age women who identified as heterosexual in the 2014-2016 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System...

BACKGROUND: Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and sexual dysfunction commonly co-occur. Although sexual dysfunction is more prevalent among women and the negative impact of sexual dysfunction on quality of life is stronger in women compared with men, few studies examine the impact of evidence-based PTSD treatments on sexual functioning outcomes in women with PTSD. The current study examined the relationship between PTSD and sexual functioning among women trauma survivors to examine if sexual functioning improves after cognitive processing therapy (CPT)...

BACKGROUND: The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) faces challenges in providing comprehensive, gender-sensitive care for women. National policies have led to important advancements, but local leadership also plays a vital role in implementing changes and operationalizing national priorities. In this article, we explore the notions of ideal women veterans' health care articulated by women's health leaders at local VHA facilities and regional networks, with the goal of identifying elements that could inform practice and policy...

INTRODUCTION: In 2016, 2.1 million people in the United States were estimated to have an opioid use disorder. Although the disorder can be safely and effectively treated with prescription methadone, and treatment is potentially long term and may span women's peak childbearing ages. Little is known about women's reproductive health needs while on methadone. METHODS: We interviewed 22 sexually active, nonpregnant women ages 21-39 years at two Los Angeles methadone clinics in 2016...

BACKGROUND: Despite the relatively recent Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) policy advances in providing care for veterans and their infants during the perinatal period, little information exists regarding access to prenatal care for women veterans. Currently, VA medical centers do not provide onsite pregnancy care for veterans, but pay for care from community obstetricians through the Veterans Choice Program (VCP) and related non-VA care programs. The VCP is subcontracted to two large contractors, Health Net and TriWest, to assist the VA in administering the VCP...

OBJECTIVES: Childrearing responsibilities create additional demands on women's time and effort, especially in low-income families. We explore whether childrearing demands and differences in time use increase the risk of overweight and obesity for women in different income brackets. METHODS: We use data for women ages 18-55 years from the 2006-2008 and 2014-2015 American Time Use Surveys (N = 17,914). We predict whether women engage in particular activities using logistic regression and, among those who do particular activities, we predict the minutes spent in various activities using ordinary least squares models...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is recognized as a barrier to receiving women's preventive health services, including cervical and breast cancer screening. Little is known about whether obesity is associated with a lower incidence of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination, another important preventive care service for adolescent girls and young women. The objective of this study was to determine if adolescent girls and young women with obesity are less likely to receive HPV vaccination compared with individuals with normal weight...
