Association between Pet Ownership and Threatened Abortion in Pregnant Women: The China Birth Cohort Study

Background: The aim of this survey was to investigate the link between pet ownership and abortion in pregnant Chinese women. Between November 2017 and December 2020, we took pregnant women from 18 provinces and autonomous regions around China. Materials and Methods: We enrolled pregnant women from 18 provinces and autonomous regions throughout China between November 2017 and December 2020. Pet owners were further divided based on the presence or absence of close contact with their animals. To determine the correlations between pet ownership and TA, generalised linear mixed models with province as a random effect, were used with province as a random effect. TA's most risk factors for TA were keeping pet cats, dogs, or both cats and dogs during pregnancy.

Decidual macrophages in recurrent spontaneous abortion

Two or more pregnancy loss is considered as two or more pregnancy losses, affecting fertility couples' happiness index. The main issue for the maternal immune system is how to develop and maintain the immune tolerance to the semi-allogeneic fetuses. During pregnancy, decidual macrophages play mainly in the immunologic dialogue. The aim of this research was to investigate decidual macrophages and RSA to see if there is a correlation between these cells and RSA by analyzing their phenotypes and functions.

Analysis results of 169 cases of chorionic villus samples of missed abortion using high throughput sequencing

This research was conducted to determine the use of high-throughput sequencing methods to identify chromosomes in chorionic villus samples of missing abortion embryos and investigate its use in the genetic diagnosis of missed abortions. At the Second Affiliated Hospital of Guangxi Medical University, he was used to evaluate chorionic villus samples obtained from 169 patients with missed abortions from August 2020 to March 2022. There were 18 cases of Turner syndrome, ten cases of trisomy 16, and ten cases of trisomy 22 out of ten. Villous chromosomal abnormalities were discovered in 48 elderly pregnant women and 52 nonelderly pregnant women with statistically significant differences. The risk of embryonic chromosomal abnormalities may rise with advanced age. HTS has a positive value and can be used to investigate and determine the causes of missed abortions.

The abortion rate in trans-myometrial eggs retrieval is the same as in classical transvaginal retrieval

OBJECTIVE: This report compares the miscarriage rate of pregnancies after trans-myometrial eggs retrieval to transvaginal eggs retrieval. PATIENTS AND METHODS: PUBLISHMENTS AND METHODS: 13,323 egg retrievals were carried out between January 2004 and December 2020. The ovaries were unreachable in 699 cases. Patients were excluded from the study due to the inclusion criteria, and thus two groups of 106 patients were excluded from the study, Group A and Group B. Despite the sampling needle completely crossing the myometrium, this results shows that the abortion rate in trans-myometrial oocyte retrieval does not decline when compared to conventional retrieval.

Induced abortion incidence and safety in Burkina Faso in 2020: Results from a population-based survey using direct and social network-based estimation approaches

This research seeks to determine induced abortion incidence and safety in Burkina Faso using both direct and indirect techniques, overall and by women's background characteristics. We asked about respondents'u2019 female friends' experience with abortion to combat social stigmas in abortion reporting. We wanted to explore the impact of abortion reporting in honor of the feminist movement. According to the adjusted friend rate, one-year abortion prevalence in 2020 among women aged 15–39 was 4. 0 per 1,000 women aged 15–201349, with the adjusted friend incidence at 22. 9 percent. Approximately nine out of ten abortions were unsanitary, with response and friend findings pointing to a greater risk of dangerous abortion among older women, less educated women, and women living in rural areas.

Challenges to the implementation of telemedicine in abortion care for victims of sexual violence in Brazil

The article explores the recent trends that have resulted from state departments adding more administrative and regulatory barriers to abortion care access, particularly against the use of telemedicine for sexual assault victims in Brazil. The case reveals human rights abuses of women's right to health, as well as the new challenges to legal abortion services.

Social inequalities in utilization of a feminist telehealth abortion service in Brazil: A multilevel analysis

Care services around the world's disruption as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic on health services reignited, sparking concerns about telehealth services. abortion seekers have long depended on international telehealth companies to obtain abortion pills in Brazil, where abortion is heavily restricted. We reviewed reports from the records of abortion seekers contacting this feminist international telehealth group during 2019 — on the individual level. We used five multilevel Poisson Mixed-effects models with significant uncertainty to determine service use prevalence ratios, which was defined as receiving abortion pills from the service. Only 8. 2% of respondents received abortion pills through the program, according to us. Both on individual and contextual levels, We concluded that although feminist telehealth abortion services provide a life-saving service to some abortion seekers, they are not yet able to crack persistent socioeconomic inequalities in their use.

Abortion attitudes, religious and moral beliefs, and pastoral care among Protestant religious leaders in Georgia.

Objective In Georgia, USA, the primary aim of this survey is to investigate Protestant religious leaders' attitudes toward abortion and their pastoral care strategies. Given a long history of supporting healing and health promotion, religious leaders may play a vital role in providing sexual and reproductive health pastoral care. Methods We undertook 20 in-depth interviews with Mainline and Black Protestant religious leaders about their views toward abortion and how they provide pastoral care for abortion. Differences in abortion views resulted from differing perspectives about how life begins and circumstances in which abortion is morally acceptable. Religious leaders characterized their pastoral care on abortion as "journeying with" congregants by advising them to make well-informed decisions regardless of the religious leader's personal convictions. Leaders cautioned not to condemn abortion but instead being able to emotionally help women because spiritual leaders are compelled to love and provide pastoral care. Both leaders stressed the need of empathy and compassion for people with unplanned pregnancy, but only those who were "pro-choice" or in the middle of the spectrum said an obligation to combat stigmatizing attitudes and behaviors toward people who experience abortion were discussed. Although religious leaders may have formal education in general or theological education on abortion-related topics, they are struggling to integrate their learning and experience across these two fields.

When More is Less: Emergency Powers, COVID-19 and Abortion in South Australia, 2020

The group quickly understood that COVID-19 restrictions would exacerbate pre-existing issues for abortion providers and their patients, and that its efforts on persuading members of the government and the Chief Public Health Officer to suspend portions of abortion legislation, particularly medical abortion via telemedicine, would grow.

Typologies of women’s abortion trajectories in Burkina Faso: findings from a qualitative study

Background Material BACKGROUND Abortion is a legally limited, yet common reproductive life event among women in Burkina Faso; however, women's abortion experiences vary greatly depending on their socioeconomic and economic status, partner involvement, and level of education. Using qualitative data, we tried to categorize women's abortion experiences across the life course and social context into typologies. Methods An initial quantitative research of a nationally representative sample of women ages 15 – 2049 years from the United States' first quantitative survey sought data on womenu2019s induced abortion experiences, as shown in a female-based survey. Women who reported an abortion in the last ten years were asked if they would participate in a subsequent in-depth interview to learn more about their abortion experiences. Results Twenty-three IDIs were examined, and women's abortion experiences were divided into three categories: abortion to postpone childbearing in adolescence; abortion to space childbirth among women in union; and abortion to discourage single mothers from having children.
