From May 2004 – December 2006, 141 healthy pregnant women without anemia, between 14 - 20 weeks of pregnancy were randomly allocated into two equal groups. Completed data were obtained in 110 patients, 55 in each group. The first group (n = 55) received a 100 mg-ferrous sulfate tablet daily, the second group (n = 55) received a 100 mg-ferrous sulfate tablet two tablets once weekly, respectively till delivery. Serum hemoglobin, ferritin, and iron were measured before and after the supplementation. Paired t and ANOVA tests were used as appropriate.</p> <p>Results: There were no significant differences between the pre- and post-treatment hemoglobin levels (p= 0.871) and serum ferritin levels (p= 0.741) with iron supplementation in the two groups when the maternal hemoglobin level was &gt;11g/dL before enrolment. However, For those women who had a hemoglobin concentration &lt;11gm/dL at the beginning, the rise in hemoglobin concentration was significantly greater at the end in the daily supplemented group as compared to the weekly group (1.44±1.51 gm/dl vs. 0.12±1.05 gm/dl, p=0.015). Although when the changes in the serum ferritin level which occurred in each group were compared, there was no significant difference (p=0.415) between the two intervention groups.</p> <p>Conclusions: These results suggest, daily or weekly iron supplementation is equally effective for healthy pregnant women without anemia.</p> 2020-05-26T18:05:58+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Author (s). Published by Siddharth Health Research and Social Welfare Society A study on awareness and behavior of women towards contraceptive use among women attending tertiary care center in northern Andhra Pradesh, India 2020-07-08T03:50:01+00:00 Daneti Sridhar Mandugavalasa Swarnalatha <p>Background: In spite of the constant efforts by the government, the unmet need for contraception (12.8% in 2006 WHO report) is still there. There are many social factors, taboos, myths, and ignorance, which is responsible for the underutilization of contraceptive services. This leads to many unwanted pregnancies causing maternal morbidity and mortality. The aim of the study was to assess the knowledge, attitude, practices, and behavior of women regarding various contraceptive methods.</p> <p>Material and Methods: It was a cross-sectional study of 1244 married women attending gynaecology OPD of Great Eastern Medical School and Hospital, Srikakulam, Andhra Pradesh (India). All participants were interviewed with a predesigned proforma.</p> <p>Results: Almost 88.5% of women were from a rural area and more than one-third were illiterate, belonging to low socioeconomic status. Awareness level about contraceptive methods was 92.3% among the participants and almost all of them knew about barriers and oral pills. The main source of knowledge was Healthcare Workers followed by media and social circles. Approximately 43.5% were currently using one or the other method of contraception. The barrier method was the most commonly used. The main reason for not using contraception was Desirous for Conception.</p> <p>Conclusion: There is a need to create awareness about the benefits of contraception.</p> 2020-06-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Author (s).
