New research finds that vaginal birth is more effective for women with ovarian cysts
A study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology has found that women who have undergone vaginal birth may be more likely to survive their disease and have a longer-term prognosis.
The study involved a sample of 5,000 women in New York City over a period of three years.
Researchers compared vaginal birth with other techniques in the women’s care, including in-vitro fertilization, in-office ultrasounds, and caesarean sections.
It found that vaginal delivery was associated with an increased risk of survival, the authors said.
The results suggest that women may be able to avoid vaginal birth and avoid ovarian cyst complications with vaginal birth, the researchers wrote.
“These findings show that women with advanced ovarian cancer should be offered care that addresses the risk of ovarian cystic ovarian disease and improves prognosis,” study author Dr. Jessica Fong said in a statement.
The study looked at data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Vital Statistics System, which collected data from births in the United States between Jan. 1, 2000, and March 31, 2021.
The data included data on patients’ age, gender, race, and race/ethnicity.
The researchers compared outcomes after the women had undergone vaginal delivery with outcomes after in-person procedures.
They found that those who had undergone an in-hospital vaginal delivery were less likely to have a vaginal cyst in the future, which was not associated with a lower survival rate.
The authors said that the data also showed that women undergoing vaginal delivery had a higher chance of a postpartum death, or of having a prolonged delay in recovery from that disease.
They also noted that vaginal births were associated with shorter hospital stays and longer time to recover from ovarian cytopathies.
The U.K.’s Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists called the findings “tremendous” and “very encouraging.”
“The research findings, which are of great public importance, indicate that women in the UK are being offered better care and are receiving more appropriate and appropriate treatment,” Dr. Simon Cox, a senior researcher at the group, told The Associated Press.
“If this is the case, we must now take action to ensure women have the best possible care available and we must do so with greater transparency and accountability.”
The Royal College has urged the government to adopt the International Gynaech Society’s recommendation to include in-house treatment for women who undergo vaginal birth.
