Step 1 | 10 Reproductive System

10.1     Normal processes

10.1.1  embryonic development, fetal maturation, and perinatal changes

10.1.2  organ structure and function   female structure, including breast   female function (eg, menstrual cycle, puberty, menopause)   male structure   male function (eg, spermatogenesis, puberty)   intercourse, orgasm   pregnancy, ovulation, fertilization, implantation, including labor and delivery, the puerperium, lactation, gestational uterus, placenta

10.1.3  cell/tissue structure and function, including hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, sex steroids, gestational hormones

10.1.4  reproductive system defense mechanisms and normal flora

10.2     Abnormal processes

10.2.1  infectious, inflammatory, and immunologic disorders   infectious disorders (eg, toxic shock syndrome, breast abscess, orchitis)   sexually transmitted diseases   immunologic and inflammatory disorders (eg, autoimmune hypogonadism, cystic mastitis)

10.2.2  traumatic and mechanical disorders   female incontinence, prolapse, cystocele   torsion of testis, varicocele, circumcision, phimosis

10.2.3  neoplastic disorders   female reproductive (eg, cervix, ovary)   male reproductive (eg, prostate)   breast, including fibrocystic changes   trophoblastic disease

10.2.4  metabolic and regulatory processes   female (eg, anovulation, infertility, polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, orgasmic dysfunction, delayed and premature puberty)   menopausal syndrome   male (eg, infertility, impotence, gynecomastia, delayed and premature puberty)   benign prostatic hyperplasia

10.2.5  systemic disorders affecting reproductive function (eg, obesity, myotonic dystrophy, cirrhosis, renal failure)

10.2.6  Reserved

10.2.7  disorders relating to pregnancy, the puerperium, and the postpartum period   obstetric problems (eg, ectopic pregnancy, third-trimester bleeding)   complications affecting other organ systems (eg, eclampsia, gestational diabetes, thyroid disorders)   disorders associated with the puerperium (eg, postpartum hemorrhage, sepsis, depression)   antepartum, intrapartum, postpartum disorders of the fetus (eg, prematurity, postmaturity, cord compression, macrosomia)

10.3     Principles of therapeutics

10.3.1  mechanisms of action, use, and adverse effects of drugs for treatment of disorders of the reproductive system and management of normal reproductive function   female reproductive tract   fertility drugs    oral contraception, other methods of contraception (eg, condoms)    estrogen, progestogen replacement, treatment of menopause   stimulants and inhibitors of labor   estrogen and progesterone antagonists   stimulators and inhibitors of lactation   male reproductive tract   fertility drugs   androgen replacement and antagonists   gonadotropin-releasing hormone and gonadotropin replacement   abortifacients   antimicrobials   antineoplastics   restoration of potency

10.3.2  other therapeutic modalities affecting the reproductive system (eg, tampons)


10.4     Gender, ethnic, and behavioral considerations affecting disease treatment and prevention, including psychosocial, cultural, occupational, and environmental

10.4.1  emotional and behavioral factors (eg, sexually transmitted diseases)

10.4.2  influence on person, family, and society (eg, infertility)

10.4.3  occupational and other environmental risk factors (eg, radiation)

10.4.4  family planning and pregnancy (eg, unwanted)
