What is your advice to those women who are pregnant at the moment, who have been told they could shield at 28 weeks but then with the change to then be told that they have to work during their 3rd trimester. Now with a 2nd lockdown and cases increasing in my local area and hearing reports that the number of pregnant ladies being admitted to hospital with COVID symptoms has increased. The mental state of probably a lot of women during this time has worsened and we think it’s acceptable to allow pregnant women to still work during their 3rd trimester with too much uncertainty. You may have studied this for 8 months of the affects it has on mother and baby but it’s not enough to be putting pregnant women’s anxieties at ease, more needs to be done not just to protect us physically but mentally also.
Egyptian Fertility and Sterility Society has the pleasure to inviting you to be part of it's Annual International Conference ( Virtual conference)

Hi RCOG community. I'm hoping for your help.
I'm trying to find out accurate figures on:

- how many women are in perimenopause in the UK
- how many of these are natural vs surgical perimenopause
- how many women in perimenopause are on HRT

There doesn't seem to be any latest stats published. The only figure online is 13m women are in perimenopause/post menopause but that comes from a Nuffield Study in 2014 and doesn't distinguish between the different stages. There are 7m women aged 40-55 years to give some context.

Also stats say 1m women are currently on HRT but again these are out of date studies. Any answers to help me on article I'm writing for Menopause Awareness Day would be gratefully received.

With 16,000 members worldwide, the RCOG works to transform women’s health and reproductive care. Our telephone number is +44 (0)20 7772 6200.

The RCOG strongly believes there should be equal access to fertility treatment for everyone. Recent law changes will mean that female same-sex couples will no longer be required to pay for expensive screening for infectious diseases before reciprocal IVF, while couples with undetectable HIV will no longer be banned from having babies via IVF.

These changes are an important step to addressing inequities in access to fertility treatment, and we hope that work continues to tackle the obstacles faced by LGBTQ+ people and couples in particular.

During , we’re highlighting Katie’s experience of fertility treatment and the barriers she and her wife faced when trying to conceive.

As Black History Month comes to an end, it’s important to think about how we can continue to promote and celebrate diversity within the O&G specialty.

Having an open and honest discussion about the racism and bias that has been evidenced in maternity services and the profession is important for the College.

This is expanded on in RCOG’s Tackling Racism eLearning course. The six modules cover topics including differential attainment, the impacts of racism on lived experience and opportunities and what we can do together to tackle racism.

This week is National Fertility Awareness Week.

According to Fertility Network UK, 1 in 6 people in the UK experience fertility problems.

We strongly believe that there should be equal access to fertility treatment for everyone. However, in many areas of England and across Northern Ireland and Wales, people still cannot access three full NHS-funded cycles of IVF.

The UK Government recently launched a tool to increase transparency to help people find information about NHS-funded IVF treatment in their area.

Racism, xenophobia, and discrimination exist in every modern society - causing avoidable disease and premature death among groups who are often already disadvantaged. One way to address the health harms is to recognise and examine why this occurs.

This Black History Month, Mr Samuel Yosef from King’s College London explains his doctoral project which explores the influence of colonialism on obstetrics and gynaecology speciality training in the UK.

The project will bring together partners and an advisory group, to analyse GMC guidance for postgraduate specialty curricula, the O&G core curriculum and related guidance as well as interviewing stakeholders to understand how they experience and perceive the manifestations of colonialism in O&G training. It will then produce recommendations on what changes need to be made to address this issue and ultimately lead to more equitable care for patients.

Regardless of the stage of pregnancy or the number of losses, miscarriage can profoundly affect mental wellbeing. Many experience a range of emotions: grief, anxiety, fear, guilt, self-blame, isolation, or depression. Although these feelings are widely recognised, they are unfortunately seldom addressed.

Dr Nora Aniko Kiss from Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust explains her latest project on the psychological impact of recurrent miscarriage and aims to explore the reasons underlying its isolating nature.
