Pregnant women urged to get a COVID-19 vaccine, as well as booster shots

COVID-19 infection in pregnancy carries much higher risk than having the vaccine or booster shots.

From: EBCOG- European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynecology Date: 27 November 2021

EBCOG represents all Obstetricians/Gynecologists in Europe and urges pregnant women to get a COVID-19 vaccine, as well as booster shots when indicated. There is now a large evidence of the safety of the vaccine during pregnancy Many European countries report that all pregnant women who have been admitted to intensive care units or have died because of COVID-19 are unvaccinated European medical experts are urging pregnant women to get their COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. There is now large scientific evidence that EMA-approved vaccines are safe for this group, at all stages of pregnancy. With hundreds of thousands of pregnant women worldwide having been vaccinated, there is no difference between vaccinated and unvaccinated pregnant women in the incidence of pregnancy complications such as stillbirth, low baby birthweight or premature births. On the other hand, pregnant women who catch COVID-19 are more likely than non-pregnant women of the same age to become very sick – some European countries report that one in 5 of critically ill patients are unvaccinated pregnant women. Many European countries report that all pregnant women who have been admitted to intensive care units or have died because of COVID-19 are unvaccinated. Severe COVID-19 infection in pregnancy also carries a large risk of stillbirth and premature birth.

Endometriosis classification, staging and reporting systems: a review on the road to a universally accepted endometriosis classification  

INTERNATIONAL WORKING GROUP OF AAGL, ESGE, ESHRE AND WES, N. VERMEULEN, M.S. ABRAO, J.I. EINARSSON, A.W. HORNE, N.P. JOHNSON, T.T.M. LEE, S. MISSMER, J. PETROZZA, C. TOMASSETTI, K.T. ZONDERVAN, G. GRIMBIZIS, R.L. DE WILDE

In the field of endometriosis, several classification, staging and reporting systems have been developed. However, endometriosis classification, staging and reporting systems that have been published and validated for use in clinical practice have not been systematically reviewed up to now.  

An International Terminology for Endometriosis, 2021 

INTERNATIONAL WORKING GROUP OF AAGL, ESGE, ESHRE AND WES, C. TOMASSETTI, N.P. JOHNSON, J. PETROZZA, M.S. ABRAO, J.I. EINARSSON, A.W. HORNE, T.T.M. LEE, S. MISSMER, N. VERMEULEN, K.T. ZONDERVAN, G. GRIMBIZIS, R.L. DE WILDE

Different classification systems have been developed for endometriosis, using different definitions for the disease, the different subtypes, symptoms and treatments. In addition, an International Glossary on Infertility and Fertility Care was published in 2017 by the International Committee for Monitoring Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ICMART) in collaboration with other organisations. An international working group convened over the development of a classification or descriptive system for endometriosis. As a basis for such system, a terminology for endometriosis was considered a condition sine qua non.
