Published Review of over 70 years of menopause science highlights research gaps and calls for individualized treatment (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Although about half of people go through menopause, less than 15% of them receive effective treatment for their symptoms. Treatment options for people experiencing irritating or severe menopause symptoms are often under researched, and some have questionable efficacy, or cause harmful side effects.

Published Human embryo-like models created from stem cells to understand earliest stages of human development (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Scientists have created a stem cell-derived model of the human embryo in the lab by reprogramming human stem cells. The breakthrough could help research into genetic disorders and in understanding why and how pregnancies fail.
Published Research challenges current thinking on the genetic causes of very early menopause (via sciencedaily.com) Original source

New research analyzed data from 11 studies of over 5,000 women around the world between 1980 and 2021, to evaluate how common it is to get pregnant naturally after having a baby conceived by fertility treatment. Around 20% of women who needed fertility treatment, such as IVF, to conceive their first child are likely to get pregnant naturally in the future, finds a new study.
Published Scientists discover new embryonic cell type that self-destructs to protect the developing embryo (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Scientists have uncovered a new quality control system that removes damaged cells from early developing embryos.
Published Pregnancy hormone repairs myelin damage in MS mouse model (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study has identified a treatment that could repair myelin in the cortex, undoing some of the damage caused by MS.
Published Technique restores healthy bacterial balance in C-section babies (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Newborns delivered by cesarean section who are swabbed with the vaginal fluid of their mothers after birth have beneficial bacteria restored to their skin surface and stools, according to a new study. In the first randomized study of its kind, a team of researchers found the process, known as vaginal seeding, definitively engrafted new strains of maternal bacteria in the babies' bodies.
Published New diagnostic finds intact sperm in infertile men (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers develop new diagnostic tool to visualize protein biomarkers of well-developed sperm to determine if surgical sperm extraction may be successful for certain infertile men.
Published New study links contraceptive pills and depression (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Women who used combined contraceptive pills were at greater risk of developing depression than women who did not, according to a new study. Contraceptive pills increased women's risk by 73 per cent during the first two years of use.
Published Exposure to 'forever chemicals' during pregnancy linked to increased risk of obesity in kids (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Exposure to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) during pregnancy was linked to slightly higher body mass indices and an increased risk of obesity in children, according to a new study.
Published Labor induction doesn't always reduce Caesarean birth risk or improve outcomes for term pregnancies (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Findings conflict with previous national trial results: Women who underwent elective induction were more likely to have a cesarean birth compared with those who underwent expectant management (30% versus 24%.)
Published Impact of maternal stress during pregnancy on child's health (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
New research examines the impact that maternal stress during pregnancy has on the neuro-development of babies.
Published Drinking alcohol while breastfeeding impacts health of newborns (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
What are the consequences of mothers consuming alcohol while breastfeeding? A research team at the University of California, Riverside, performed a mouse study to find out.
Published Exposure to air pollution during pregnancy increases risk for flu (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study shows that exposure to ultrafine particles (UFPs) during pregnancy enhances respiratory viral infection risk. According to the researchers, it is imperative that pregnant women in urban cities, where influenza and UFPs are more prevalent, are provided vaccinations and preventive measures limiting UFP exposure to protect maternal health.
Published Osteoporosis treatments may benefit from discovery of key driver of low bone density (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Scientists have pinpointed a key driver of low bone density, a discovery that may lead to improved treatments with fewer side effects for women with osteoporosis. The findings reveal that loss of an epigenetic modulator, KDM5C, preserves bone mass in mice. KDM5C works by altering epigenetic 'marks,' which are akin to 'on' and 'off' switches that ensure the instructions written in DNA are used at the right time and in the right place.
Published Diet high in fruit and vegetables linked to lower miscarriage risk (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A preconception and early-pregnancy diet that contains lots of fruit, vegetables, seafood, dairy, eggs and grain may be associated with reducing risk of miscarriage, a new review of research suggests.
