I've run across three articles lately that I thought you all might appreciate! However, the HPV vaccine one is potentially too inflammatory for VP, given how those discussions tend to explode.

So I'll post them here.

Bedsider breaks down the parts of patient pamphlets, explaining why some information gets included, others omitted, and others get emphasized way too much.

A giant study found that the only nasty side effects to Gardasil were fainting and injection site irritation. I can't tell how long the study actually followed the 200K participants, but at least for a few months after the (third?) injection. Sidenote: I'm rather annoyed with the takeaway the Live Science writer leaves at the end. In my mind, the headline is the more accurate summary.

ACOG recommends IUDs and Implanon safe for teens! Maybe this will finally be the kick in the pants some practitioners need to be okay with giving IUDs to nulliparous uteri?

Just a link to the My Planned Parenthood Blog Carnival hosted by Shakesville and What Tami Said. You can go there to check out a lot of stories about folks' experiences with Planned Parenthood (including mine!). :)

If you are interested, What Tami Said and Shakesville are hosting a blog carnival. As they describe it, it is "a blog carnival devoted to sharing the stories of the women and men helped by Planned Parenthood of Indiana and other Planned Parenthood branches."

I will be writing.

Hi, I'm new to the community. This might seem a bit unorthodox but I am a photographer who is currently creating a body of photographs on the topic of miscarriages as a way to educate people on their prevalence and the types of experiences that women have because of them (though I am also interested in hearing from partners too).

If you are interested in reading a bit more about the project, please read the rest of the post after the LJ cut. Thank you. :)

The film No Woman, No Cry which was directed by Christy Turlington Burns. The film shines light on the fact t hat due to substandard maternal healthcare worldwide, "more than 500,000 women die each year during childbirth—and that 90 percent of these deaths are preventable." (EMC)

The film airs tomorrow night (5-7-2011) on the Oprah Winfrey Network at 9:30 EST, and there are several ways to get involved beyond just tuning in. One way is to join or host a Watch Party .

Hey VPers! I'm a student in a sociology PhD program at Washington State University, and I'm studying online community. I'm currently looking for people willing to talk with me about their experiences. The interviews will generally be between an hour and two hours long, and happen through text chat (AIM, gchat, whatever) or, if you prefer, video chat. If you're near me, we can even talk in person.

To participate, you need to be over 18... oh, and I only really speak English, sorry. Other than that, if you see yourself as a member of an online community, I'd love to hear from you! There's more information and a sign-up form at http://edu.surveygizmo.com/s3/524503/Online-Community-Study-Interest-Form.

If you know of anyone else who might like to take part in this, please feel free to send them the link as well.

If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. Thanks!
