  1. -02-15-06 Study: Risk of Hip Fractures Reduced With Supplements (ABC News)
      "Taking calcium and vitamin D supplements for several years can help older women reduce the risk of hip fractures, according to the results of a long-term, comprehensive, federally funded study by the Women's Health Initiative."

  2. -06-21-07 Study: Some Clarity on Estrogen Use (US News)
      "Estrogen is not risky and looks to be beneficial for women's hearts when it's begun within 10 years of menopause, says the latest report from the Women's Health Initiative appearing in this week's New England Journal of Medicine. Confused? This sure sounds different from the WHI findings that shook the world a few years back—that hormones brought heart risk, not benefit—and overnight changed how medicine and women viewed what had been seen as a fountain of health." 06-07

Papers
  1. -Women's Microbial Health Surprise (Time.com)
      "The vaginal microbiome — the community of bacteria living in the vagina — varies considerably between women, the study found, and even within the same woman at different times."

      "The results, published this week in Science Translational Medicine, suggest that there may not be a single standard for a 'normal' or 'healthy' vaginal environment. Levels of bacteria that may signify bacterial infection in one woman may be healthy in another. The study involved 32 women who submitted vaginal bacterial swabs taken twice a week for 16 weeks."

      "It’s the first study to document such dynamic differences, and could change the way doctors currently diagnose and treat vaginal infections. Yeast and bacterial infections affect about 25% to 30% of women in the U.S. on any given day. Rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment, each woman may require more tailored treatment." 06-12

  2. Editorial: Most Women May Not Need Medication for Feelings (Prevention.com)
      "WOMEN are moody. By evolutionary design, we are hard-wired to be sensitive to our environments, empathic to our children’s needs and intuitive of our partners’ intentions. This is basic to our survival and that of our offspring. Some research suggests that women are often better at articulating their feelings than men because as the female brain develops, more capacity is reserved for language, memory, hearing and observing emotions in others."

      "These are observations rooted in biology, not intended to mesh with any kind of pro- or anti-feminist ideology." 103-15

  3. Exercise May Reduce Symptoms of Menopause (MSNBC News)
      "Though the research is still thin, many health experts say even moderate exercise can help relieve the problems of menopause in some women, including anxiety, insomnia and night sweats." 06-06

  5. Study: Fetal Pain Not Present Until Third Trimester (JAMA)
      "Proposed federal legislation would require physicians to inform women seeking abortions at 20 or more weeks after fertilization that the fetus feels pain and to offer anesthesia administered directly to the fetus. This article examines whether a fetus feels pain and if so, whether safe and effective techniques exist for providing direct fetal anesthesia or analgesia in the context of therapeutic procedures or abortion." 8-05

  6. Study: Free Contraceptives Dramatically Reduce Abortion Rate (NBC News)
      "When more than 9,000 women ages 14 to 45 in the St. Louis area were given no-cost contraception for three years, abortion rates dropped from two-thirds to three-quarters lower than the national rate, according to a new report by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis researchers." 10-12
