The most common organs involved are the uterus (uterine prolapse), the bladder (cystocele), anterior rectal wall (rectocele), and small bowel (enterocele). These organs prolapse out of their normal position and shift into or expel out of the vaginal canal. A prolapse can occur if an individual 's lower pelvic floor muscles are weakened and damaged from excessive pressure and stretching, which can be caused by prolonged and vaginal childbirth, surgery, advancing age, chronic constipation, cancer, and even obesity. Additionally, postmenopausal women have an increased risk of pelvic organ prolapse due to the decreased production of estrogen, which is an essential component in manufacturing collagen. Therefore, a decrease in estrogen is associated with a decrease in collagen, which normally enables the supporting tissues and ligaments in the pelvic cavity to stretch and return to their normal size and position.
There are also emergency C sections - ones that are definitely needed. If the infant’s heart rate seems suspicious during the delivery, the doctors will think that the baby cannot last during labor for so long and perform a C section for safety. Another situation is that if the umbilical cord gets out the cervix first; this means that the baby might not have enough oxygen to be delivered through vaginal birth. If the woman has had a C section already, she should get C section for her new birth because her previous scar might open up during vaginal delivery. C section is also used if the woman has had a surgery on her uterus (1).
A large topic in D. Spence’s (2010) review is that women are being over-diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome as a method of further oppressing women in the medical field. That is to say, D. Spence (2010) views the over-diagnosis “has made women anxious, paranoid, and unhappy and has undermined their sexuality” (p. 341). Women who have been diagnosed with Polycystic ovarian syndrome often feel like it is used as an excuse to ignore other problems further down the line. Hormone imbalances, weight problems, and depression are often all blamed on Polycystic ovarian syndrome once a woman has been diagnosed, regardless of whether it is the cause or not. It is in this way that the sexist medical practices perceived in modern practices oppress women, demeaning them and making their problems seem lesser than they are.

The AFP is a blood test that determines the amount of AFP that has entered the mother's bloodstream from the fetus. This test might also be part of a triple screen, a procedure that searches for defects in the neural tubes and other anomalies that may be going on. If for some reason spina bifida was not diagnosed before birth, it can still be done post-birth by CT, MRI, or x-ray. On an infant spina bifida can present as a small patch of skin with hair on the back

The fetus is definitely still inside the uterus (based usually on an exam using ultrasound), but the outcome of your pregnancy is still in question. This may occur if you have an infection, such as aurinary tract infection, become dehydrated, use certain drugs or medications, have been involved in physical trauma, if the developing fetus is abnormal in some way, or for no apparent reason at all. Other than these reasons, threatened miscarriages are generally not caused by things you do, such as heavy lifting, having sex, or by emotional stress. • Completed miscarriage: You may have a completed miscarriage (also called a spontaneous abortion) if your bleeding and cramping have slowed down and the uterus appears to be empty based on ultrasound evaluation. This means you have lost the pregnancy.

Intro: Intro: As a nurse we encounter many ethical and legal dilemmas on a daily basis. One of the ethical dilemmas presented to us was a 36 year old women scheduled for a salpingo – oophorectomy and hysterectomy. During conversation with the patient, the patient comments that she will not be going through menopause but elaborates that her friend had “surgical menopause” and it was devastating. Upon review of the chart, the nurse finds that the surgery consent was signed and calls the physician to relay the information. The physician instructs the nurse to move forward with pre-op.
Through differences and similarities Brave New World, written by Aldous Huxley, shows the future for reproductive technologies. While this novel was written in the 1930’s, the ideas used in the book are actually used in the modern world. Reproductive technologies are used to treat infertility and increase reproduction in different ways and some are used as contraceptives. Through the use of modern reproductive technologies Huxley gives a more controversial view about the use them, some of the few that brought attention were the use of contraceptive pills, test-tube babies, and the process of in vitro fertilization. Even though contraceptive processes have been around since the 1500’s, the first birth control pill came out in the 1950’s.
