First, don't hang up or leave, this is an informal but legitimate
research based query I'm conducting for an MD doctor friend who
doesn't have access to on-line services.  I apologize if these
questions seem out of place here, but I'm trying to hit as many
newsgroups where women may potentially respond.

Questions and answers are being used for background purposes only.
I'm interested in getting personal opinions/points of view for the

The information is being collected for an informal educational
presentation and will not be used for litigation, or other adversarial
