Oral contraceptive pills are effective but poor compliance increases rates of pregnancy during treatment. Results: overall and method-failure pearl indexes were numerically lower with the patch vs OC (oral). the diff. was not statistically significant. the incidence of breakthrough bleeding/spotting was higher only in the first 2 cycles in the patch group. the avg. compliance with ppl was about 10% lower in the OC, both treatments were similarly well tolerated, however application site reatctions, breast discomfort, and dysmenorrhea were significantly more common in the patch group. Conclusion: THE CONTRACEPTIVE PATCH IS COMPARABLE TO A COMBO OC IN CONTRACEPTIVE EFFICACY AND CYCLE CONTROL. COMPLIANCE WAS BETTER WITH THE WEEKLY CONTRACEPTIVE PATCH THAN WITH THE OC.

The Lives and Voices of Highly Sexual Women
American women who experience very strong and grequent sexual desire have often been either ignored or stigmatized. A study of highly sexual women (convenience sample)described how their sexuality has affected their lives strongly. first they internally sensed demand for sex excitement and satisfaction too intense to be ignored. for some it was a major organising principle of their time and enrergy. second their lives are lieved in a society that often defines highly sexual women in pejorative ways. women reported experiencing struggles and challenges in almost every area of their lives because of their sexualitym including feelings about themselves and their relationships with partners, female friends and acquaintances. for women to be allowed to experience their sexual selves fullym political and social changes permitting women to feel not only more sexual but also safer must occur.
Investigating the Underlying Structure in Sadomasochistically Oriented Behavior
A study of 29 sexual behaviors associated with 1 out of 4 diff broad themes of SM behavior, and how they represent diff scales of intensity within each theme. The themes were: Hypermasculinity, administration and receipt of pain, physical restriction, and humiliation. e.g.: wanted to examine whether skin branding is more intense expression of pain that spankin or faceslappin is a more intense expresion of humiliation than flagellation, etc.S/M ppl reported which of the 29 behaviors they had done in the past year. Analysis supported the existence of cumulative scales in each of the 4 themes, SUGGESTING THAT THE ORDER IN WHICH PPL ENGAGE IN DIFF SM BEHAVIORS IS NOT RANDOM AND THAT SPECIFIC, LESS INTENSE BEHAVIORS GENERALLY PRECEDE MORE INTENSE BEHAVIORS GENERALLY PRECEDE MORE INTENSE BEHAVIORS
Childhood Sexual Abuse and Adult Psychiatric and Substance Use Disorders in Women
Women who report childhood sexual abuse are at increased risk for developing psychiatric disorders in adulthood. population based sample of twins self reported 3 levels of CSA:nongenital, genital and intercourse. Women with CSA have a substantially increased risk for developing a wide range of psychopathology. most of this association is due to more severe forms of CSA and connot be explained by background familial factors. Although other biases cannot be ruled out, these results are consistent with the hypothesis that CSA is casually related to an increased risk for psychiatric and substance abuse disorders.
Sexual Harassment of Adolescents Perpetrated by Teachers and Peers: An Exploration of the Dymanics of Power, Culture, and Gender in Secondary Schools
study compares and contrasts sexual harassment on students from peers and from teachers. (14-15yr olds). There are important differences. Unwanted sexual behavior by peers is a cultural phenomenon that occurs in public areas. the relatively low incidence of unwanted sexual behavior (18%) however does not fully reflect the culture model. sexual harassment by teachers is a particularly detrimnetal experience for adolescents, and health-related probs are therefore reported in higher numbers. contrary to the assupmtons of the Power Model, sexual harassment perpetrated by teachers is not incidental (27%) and does not only occur in secluded places.
