  • Adolescents who become pregnant prior to completion of their education typically face expulsion from school, and those who give birth often are not readmitted. In many African societies for example, once a young woman has given birth she is regarded as an adult, a role that is generally perceived as incompatible with continued formal educa- tion. In the event that a young woman is forced to abandon her education due to early pregnancy, she likely faces curtailment of her social, intellectual and economic develop- ment.

  • Each mental health professional’s life offers a personal opportunity to diminish the sense of bafflement about how health, suffering, and recovery processes work. Over decades of work in a mental health field, many of us develop the sense that we better understand some aspects of psychology and psychopathology. Those who devote themselves to one subject in a scholarly research fashion seem to have a slightly greater potential to remove some of the mystery for themselves and others in a particular subject area.

  • Pathways that control erection and detumescence. A. Erection is mediated by cholinergic parasympathetic pathways, and nonadrenergic, noncholinergic (NANC) pathways, which release nitric oxide (NO). Endothelial cells also release NO, which induces vascular smooth-muscle cell relaxation, allowing enhanced blood flow, and leading to erection. Detumescence is mediated by sympathetic pathways that release norepinephrine and stimulate α-adrenergic pathways, leading to contraction of vascular smooth-muscle cells. Endothelin, released from endothelial cells, also induces contraction.

  • Chapter 124. Sexually Transmitted Infections: Overview and Clinical Approach (Part 21) Although gonorrhea is now substantially less common than chlamydial infection in industrialized countries, screening tests for N. gonorrhoeae are still appropriate for women and teenage girls attending STD clinics and for sexually active teens and young women from areas of high gonorrhea prevalence. Multiplex NAATs that combine screening for N. gonorrhoeae and C. trachomatis in a single low-cost assay now facilitate the prevention and control of both infections in populations at high risk.

  • The study provides information on key reproductive and sexual health indicators in young women and men age 15-24 in 38 developing countries.

Indicators are selected for the following key areas: background characteristics; adolescent pregnancy; contraception; sexual activity; and HIV/AIDS-related knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors. Additional analysis examines the association of various individual and household characteristics with the key indicators.

  • The neighborhoods and communities that adolescents live in may also influence their reproductive health behaviors. Numerous studies show that adolescents living in disadvantaged communities with high poverty rates and low levels of socioeconomic status have a greater risk of early sexual initiation and a greater risk of adolescent pregnancy and childbearing (Brewster, Billy, & Grady, 1993; Hogan & Kitagawa, 1985; Sucoff & Upchurch, 1998). Alternately, living in a community with higher socioeconomic status is associated with a reduced risk of risky sexual activity.

  • During the conflict and civil war in the 1980s and 1990s, particularly between 1992 and 1995, armed factions turned the traditional norms of honor and shame into weapons of war, engaging in rape and sexual assault against women of opposing groups as an ultimate means of dishonoring entire communities and reducing people's capacities to resist military advances.2 In response, concerns about women's security led to the imposition of ever stricter interpretations of what constitutes socially acceptable behavior, supported by the most conservative reading of the holy scriptures.

  • Including urinary issues in the gynecologic evaluation is helpful. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are one of the most common reasons to seek medical care and are sometimes triggered by sexual activity. Urinary incontinence is an increasingly recognized health problem (see Chapter 10). Finally, because domestic violence is common (2), screening for current or previous physical, emotional, or sexual abuse is an important part of the pa- tient’s history and in some states is mandatory.

  • P ain is an inevitable part of the human experience. We are born frail and vulnerable, and maturation does little to change our condition. Re- gardless of age, we have practically no natural protection from attacks by predators or even from the environment in harsh weather conditions. What keeps us safe is our intelligence and the ability to come up with methods to protect our soft skin, easily broken bones, and vulnerable vi- tal organs. In fact, we humans live in mortal fear of even the slightest wound, and we have devised elaborate mechanisms to protect ourselves.

  • EU enlargement, the CAP reform, changing consumer demands and globalization have also impacted negatively on the agricultural sector (Rudmann, 2008), with the scale of support provided to farmers drastically reduced (Alsos, Carter, Ljunggren & Welter, 2011). A gradual decline in income from traditional farming activities has forced many farming businesses to diversify in order to remain viable. Diversification requires farmers to combine other, typically non-agricultural activities with their core farm business.

  • There were no patients in whom water intoxication developed or who needed transfusions perioperatively. Bladder neck contracture, which developed three to four months postoperatively, was the most frequent complication (49 cases, 32.7%). Other complications included pubic osteitis (2 cases), bladder tamponade (2 case), acute epididymitis (3 case), pulmonary embolism (1 case), and rectourethral fistula (1 case). Erectile function was preserved after the first operation in 26 (60.5%) of the evaluated 38 sexually active patients.

  • An understanding of the patient’s current and past sexual activity aids in assessment of sexually transmitted disease risk and contraceptive needs. The physician should strive to avoid assumptions about a patient’s sexuality. One way is to ask, “Are you sexually active with men, women, or both?” Similarly, inquiring whether the patient is interested in contraception rather than as- suming a patient is only choosing between birth control methods will lead to a more productive interaction. Current and prior expression of sexual identity may vary.

  • In all regions, knowledge of any method of contraception is high among young women and nearly universal among young men. However, knowledge of multiple methods is lower among young women and men in sub-Saharan Africa than their counterparts in other regions. Current use of modern contraception among married youth is lowest in sub-Saharan Africa. Overall, although sexually active, unmarried young women are more likely to use modern contraceptive methods, they also have higher levels of unmet need for contraception compared to currently married young women.

  • Several sexuality education programs have been evaluated, and many include a combination of abstinence messages for sexually inexperienced teens and messages about contraceptive use for sexually experienced teens. Slightly more than half of these programs show some positive impacts on reproductive health outcomes for at least some populations (Aarons et al., 2000; Eisen, Zellman & McAlister, 1990; Kirby, 2001; Thomas et al., 1992).
