A new study by researchers at the Yale School of Medicine, funded through an educational grant by the makers of First Response pregnancy tests, shows women are often confused about their reproductive health.
According to a press release: In the survey of 1,000 women (ages 18 to 40), results showed that only 50% have ever discussed their reproductive health with their medical provider, underscoring a need for increased dialogue between women and healthcare professionals. Furthermore, one-third of respondents admitted to visiting their reproductive health provider less than once a year or never.
This research was published in the January 27th issue of Fertility and Sterility.
