NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that OBGYN.net continues to provide highlights from two key society meetings—NAMS 2014 and ASRM 2014. Both The North American Menopause Society and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine held their annual meetings last month, and OBGYN.net features coverage of both.
NAMS 2014, which focused on managing the related effects of menopause on women's health, featured content relating to hot flashes, sexual function, sleep habits, genitourinary associations and bone loss. ASRM 2014 featured new research on reproductive outcomes, new technologies, and various factors in conception problems. Both meetings strive to improve women's health care by presenting the latest research and offering useful clinical tips to women's health care providers.
Some recent highlights of recent meeting coverage include:
- Use the PLISSIT Model for Patients With Low Libido: Many sexual desire problems in women can be addressed without a prescription, but OB/GYNs must first develop skills for frank discussions with patients about sex. Using the PLISSIT Model as a guide can help facilitate these sometimes awkward conversations.
- Do Sexual Desire Problems Cause Distress: Sexual desire problems in midlife women are common, but of key importance is determining whether they cause distress, says Raymond Rosen, PhD. Therapeutic techniques designed to improve low libido are only warranted if a patient is distressed.
- Novel IVF Technology: Safe and Effective, May Cut Costs: An alternative technology to incubating embryos in a laboratory during an IVF (in vitro fertilization) cycle, with and without ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), has been found to be safe and effective and may reduce the high price tag of IVF.
