Description:The Office on Women’s Health anticipates the availability of FY2022 funds to increase health literacy for women focusing on preconception health and the underlying conditions associated with of an irregular menstrual cycle such as endometriosis, fibroids and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) that ultimately contribute to risk factors and inequities in maternal morbidity and mortality. Preconception health is an important factor in addressing the health equity in maternal morbidity and mortality. According to the CDC, pregnancy related mortality for Black and American Indian and Alaska Native women is 2-3 times higher than White, Hispanic, and Asian/Pacific Islander women. Additionally, Black and African American women experience much higher rates of endometriosis, fibroids, and PCOS. This initiative focuses on the intersection of these risk factors presenting with an irregular menstrual cycle and/or symptoms related to the menstrual cycle and maternal morbidity and mortality with the goal of detecting and treating these underlying conditions without delays in diagnosis.
