Preterm is defined as babies born alive before 37 weeks of pregnancy are completed. There are sub-categories of preterm birth, based on gestational age: extremely preterm (<28 weeks) very preterm (28 to <32 weeks). For premature infants born with a weight of less than 1000 g, the 3 primary causes of mortality are respiratory failure, infection, and congenital malformation.
In infants who began treatment with dexamethasone more than seven days after birth, the incidence of hearing loss was significantly greater than in the controls, although the change in intelligence quotient was comparable to that in the placebo group. The investigators also found that the incidence of cerebral palsy and visual impairment were similar in the dexamethasone and placebo groups whether dexamethasone was received within seven days following birth or later.

Prolonged pregnancy is defined as a pregnancy that has progressed beyond 42 weeks gestation1, although the terms prolonged pregnancy and post term pregnancy are interchanged. Postmaturity symptoms vary. The most common are dry skin, overgrown nails, creases on the baby's palms and soles of their feet, minimal fat, a lot of hair on their head, and either a brown, green, or yellow discoloration of their skin. Doctors diagnose post-mature birth based on the baby's physical appearance and the length of the mother's pregnancy. In most cases, the cause of postterm pregnancy is unknown. There are some factors that place a woman at increased risk. The incidence is higher in first pregnancies and in women who have had a previous postterm pregnancy. Genetic factors may also play a role. One study showed an increased risk of postterm pregnancy in women who were, themselves, born postterm.
However, variations in when a woman ovulates can lead to errors in calculating the true duration of pregnancy and lead to over- and underestimations of when the baby is due. An ultrasound examination performed in the first half of pregnancy is the most reliable method of calculating the date the baby is due, especially in women with long or irregular menstrual cycles.

Transvaginal ultrasound is a test used to look at a womans reproductive organs, including the uterus, ovaries, and cervix. Transvaginal means across or through the vagina. The ultrasound probe will be placed inside the vagina. Ultrasound tests use high-frequency sound waves to allow doctors to see your internal organs. The sound waves bounce off your organs, creating images of their structures. A transvaginal ultrasound is a kind of pelvic ultrasound that is used to see reproductive organs like the uterus, ovaries, cervix, and vagina.
“Transvaginal” means “through the vagina.” The procedure involves the internal use of an ultrasound wand, rather than simply applying the wand to the outside of the pelvis as done in a regular pelvic ultrasound.

Postoperative pain management aims to minimise patient discomfort, facilitate early mobilisation and functional recovery, and prevent acute pain developing into chronic pain.
Mental health can affect a patients recovery and psychological vulnerability is predictive of severe postoperative pain. Education before surgery reduces anxiety and improves patient satisfaction.
The choice of analgesia depends on the type of surgery the patient is having. Using procedure-specific pain guidelines within an enhanced rehabilitation program is recommended.

Tokophobia is a term used for the childbirth fear or fear from pregnancy. It is a type of specific phobia. It is also known as maleusiophobia. Tokophobia is a distressing psychological disorder which may be overlooked by medical professionals; as well as specific phobia and anxiety disorders, tokophobia may be associated with depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Recognition of tokophobia and close liaison with obstetricians or other medical specialists can help to reduce the severity of tokophobia and ensure efficient treatment.
1. Primary tokophobia is the fear and deep-seated dread of childbirth which pre-dates pregnancy and can start in adolescence. This often relates back to their own mother's experience or something they learned in school.
2. Secondary tokophobia is due to previous experience of traumatic birth, poor obstetric practice or medical attention, postpartum depression or other such upsetting events.

Chronic pelvic pain is pain in your pelvic region-the area below your bellybutton and between your hips-that lasts six months or longer. Chronic pelvic pain can be a symptom of another disease, or it can be a condition in its own right. The cause of chronic pelvic pain is often hard to find. Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is a common problem and presents a major challenge to health care providers because of its unclear etiology, complex natural history, and poor response to therapy.
Chronic pelvic pain is poorly understood and, consequently, poorly managed. This condition is best managed using a multidisciplinary approach. Management requires good integration and knowledge of all pelvic organ systems and other systems including musculoskeletal, neurologic, and psychiatric systems.

Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the leading cause of maternal mortality. All women who carry a pregnancy beyond 20 weeks gestation are at risk for PPH and its sequelae. Although maternal mortality rates have declined greatly in the developed world, PPH remains a leading cause of maternal mortality elsewhere. All women lose some blood as the placenta separates from the uterus and immediately afterward. And women who have c-sections generally lose more than those who give birth vaginally. But because the amount of blood in your body increases by almost 50 percent during your pregnancy, your body is well prepared to deal with this expected blood loss.
Normal bleeding just after childbirth is primarily from open blood vessels in the uterus, where the placenta was attached. (If you had an episiotomy or tear during birth, you may also bleed from that site until it's stitched up.)

Breech presentation is defined as a fetus in a longitudinal lie with the buttocks or feet closest to the cervix. This occurs in 3-4% of all deliveries. The percentage of breech deliveries decreases with advancing gestational age from 22% of births prior to 28 weeks gestation to 7% of births at 32 weeks gestation to 1-3% of births at term.

A caesarean delivery is a surgical procedure used to deliver an infant. It requires regional anaesthetic to prevent pain, and then a vertical or horizontal incision in the lower abdomen to expose the uterus. Another incision is made in the uterus to allow removal of the baby and placenta.

Endometriosis is a painful, chronic disease that affects at least 6.3 million women and girls worldwide. It occurs when tissue like that which lines the uterus (tissue called the endometrium) is found outside the uterus-usually in the abdomen on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and ligaments that support the uterus the area between the vagina and rectum; the outer surface of the uterus and the lining of the pelvic cavity. Other sites for these endometrial growths may include the bladder, bowel, vagina, cervix, vulva, and in abdominal surgical scars. Less commonly they are found in the lung, arm, thigh, and other locations.

When a woman permanently stops having menstrual periods, she has reached the stage of life called menopause. Often called the change of life, this stage signals the end of a womans ability to have children. Many health care providers actually use the term menopause to refer to the period of time when a womans hormone levels begin to change. Menopause is said to be complete when menstrual periods have ceased for one continuous year.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries work.
Reasons of the condition are:
1. Cysts that develop in your ovaries (polycystic ovaries)
2. Ovaries do not regularly release eggs (ovulate)
3. Having high levels of "male hormones" called androgens in your body

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2016 then, impact factor = Y/X
