a surge in what hormone occurs just prior to ovulation LH

during the luteal phase what is the predominant hormone progesterone
exogenous estrogen has what effect on the pituitary? what are the effects on aldosterone and androgens estrogen feeds back to the pituitary which inhibits FSH and ovulation. estrogen also increases aldosterone which results in increased sodium and water retention. free androgens decrease via increases in sex hormone binding globulin
effects of progestins on the pituitary, endometrium and cervix inhibits ovulation via the pituitary, thins the uterine lining/endometrial atrophy, and cervical mucus thickening which inhibits sperm.
other than breast feeding, what is the reason for the postpartum period in which hormonal contraceptives are contraindicated DVT risk. wait 21 days if no RFs for DVT and 48 days if RFs for DVT.

max wt for use of transdermal contraceptive patch 90 kg
time frame for taking emergency contraception 120 hours, pkg insert says 72 but studies show more
MOA of clomiphene citrate for infertility stimulates ovulation and sperm production. SERM that blocks estrogen receptors which increases release of GnRH which increases release of FSH and LH
clinical signs of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome rapid weight gain, ascites, pleural and pericardial effusions, oliguria or anuria, hemoconcentration, leukocytosis, hypovolemia, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, ARDS, hypercoagulability, multiple organ failure
treatment of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome fluids, physical activity if OP, thrombosis ppx in hospital
diagnostic tests for syphilis nontreponemal tests detect serum concentrations of antibody to cardiolipin. treponemal tests detect antibodies to T pallidum. typically use nontreponemal for screening and confirm with treponemal.
symptom of primary syphilis chancre. lasts 2-6 weeks and resolves on its own.
treatment of syphilis if primary or secondary first line is a singe dose of pen G 2.4 MU IM. if pt has an allergy to PCNs then give doxycycline 100 mg PO BID or tetracycline 500 mg PO QID x2 weeks.
hallmark of secondary syphilis/early latent lesions on palms and soles of feet. when lesions resolve latent phase begins
treatment of late latent syphilis or tertiary syphilis. pen G 2.4 MU weekly for 3 weeks. if allergic use doxycycline 100 mg BID or tetracycline 500 mg QID for 4 weeks.
treatment of neurosyphilis crystalline pen G 3-4 MU IV Q4 hrs for 10-14 days. alternatively can use procaine PCN 2.4 MU daily IM with probenecid 500 mg QID x10-14 days. if PCN allergic either use CTX 2g daily for 10-14 days or desensitize to penicillin and give.
treatment for chlamydia Azithromycin 1g once. or doxy 100 mg BID x7 days. can also use levoflox 500 mg x7 days or erythromycin,
treatment for gonorrhea CTX 250 mg IM AND treatment of chlamydia. Azithromycin or doxy
