Results of the survey, conducted by researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and Montefiore Health System, show that feelings of guilt and shame are common after a miscarriage and that most people erroneously believe that miscarriages are rare. The findings were published online today in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology.

Female Cystic Fibrosis Patients Need More Contraceptive Guidance, Penn Medicine Study Finds

Only half of women with cystic fibrosis (CF) report using contraception and frequently apt to become pregnant unintentionally, according to a new study from researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The results of the study were presented earlier this week at the 2015 American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting in San Francisco. As recently as the 1960s, children with cystic fibrosis – an inherited disease that causes thick, sticky mucus to form in the lungs, pancreas, and other organs – often died before attending elementary school. Today many people with the disease live into their 30s, 40s and beyond.
