Feminism has altered predominant perspectives in a wide range of areas within Western society, ranging from culture to law. Feminist activists have campaigned for women's legal rights (rights of contract, property rights, voting rights); for rights to bodily integrity and autonomy, for abortion rights, and for reproductive rights (including access to contraception and quality prenatal care); for protection from domestic violence, sexual harassment and rape; for workplace rights, including maternity leave and equal pay; and against other forms of discrimination.

This helps the students understand the topic in a better way, equipping them to manage the patients themselves. This book explain on the techniques, tips and interpretations of ultrasonography and detailed in a separate chapter. The obstetrician-gynecologist should acquire the knowledge and skills in the field of ultrasonography so much so that it evolves as an essential armamentarium for diagnosis and management by themselves.

They are then structured into subtopics and are further divided into small and discrete sections to which the reader’s attention is sought.

Lactational amenorrhoea method for family planning | Cochrane

The lactational amenorrhoea method (LAM) is a contraceptive method where the mother is informed and supported how to use breastfeeding for contraception. Breastfeeding while not giving supplementary feeds delays the return of fertility and menstrual periods, which is a normal (physiological) protection against pregnancy. In this review we have studied the effectiveness of LAM as a contraceptive method in fully breastfeeding women in comparison to breastfeeding women without any support. We found no clear differences in effectiveness (pregnancy) between women using LAM and being supported in doing so, and fully breastfeeding amenorrheic women not using any method. Apart from this we recommend breastfeeding itself from a public health point of view.
