         Start practising now and you will be fluent by the time of the Part 3 exam.
3.     EMQ. Kangaroo care.
Kangaroo care.
These are not true EMQs as there may be more than one answer. I do this to compress several questions into one to reduce the amount of typing and the paper and ink needed for printing. The wording will indicate whether there is one or more than one answer.

4.     EMQ. Cystic fibrosis.
There is no option list to make you behave in model fashion. Ideally you should decide the correct answer then look for it on the option list.
Question 1.
A woman is 8 weeks pregnant and known to be a carrier of cystic fibrosis.
Her husband is Caucasian. What is the risk of the child having cystic fibrosis?
Question 2.
A healthy woman attends for pre-pregnancy counselling. Her brother has cystic fibrosis.
Her husband is Caucasian. He has been screened for cystic fibrosis. The test was negative.
What is the approximate risk of them having a child with cystic fibrosis?
Question 3.
A healthy woman is a known carrier of cystic fibrosis. She attends for pre-pregnancy counselling. Her husband has cystic fibrosis.What is the risk of them having a child with CF?
Question 4.
A healthy woman attends for pre-pregnancy counselling. Her sister has had a child with cystic fibrosis. What is her risk of being a carrier?
Question 5.
A woman attends for pre-pregnancy counselling. Her mother has cystic fibrosis.
What is the risk that she is a carrier?
Question 6.
A woman attends for pre-pregnancy counselling. Her mother has cystic fibrosis.
The partner’s risk of being a carrier is 1 in X. What is the risk that she will have a child with CF?
Question 7.
A healthy Caucasian woman is 10 weeks pregnant. Her husband is a known carrier of cystic fibrosis.
Which test would you arrange?
Question 8.
A woman attends for pre-pregnancy counselling. She has read about diagnosing CF using cffDNA from maternal blood. Is it possible to test for CF in this way?
Question 9.
A woman and her husband are known carriers of cystic fibrosis.
What is the risk of them having an affected child?
Question 10.

What can they do to reduce the risk of having an affected child?
Question 11.
A woman and her husband are known carriers of cystic fibrosis.
Can CVS exclude an affected pregnancy?
Question 12.
A woman with cystic fibrosis is planning pregnancy. Her husband is a carrier of cystic fibrosis. What is the risk of having an affected child?
Question 13.
A woman with cystic fibrosis has a normal delivery of a healthy, 3.2 kg. baby at term. She has been advised not to breastfeed because her breast milk will be protein-deficient due to malabsorption.
Is this advice correct?
Question 14.
A woman with cystic fibrosis has a normal delivery of a healthy, 3.2 kg. baby at term. She has been advised not to breastfeed because her breast milk will contain abnormally low levels of sodium.
Is this advice correct?

5.     EMQ. Mycoplasma genitalium.
Mycoplasma genitalium. Question.
Lead-in.
BASSH launched a new, “NICE-accredited” guideline on MG in July 2018 This makes it a hot topic and it is one that most people will know nothing about. There are enough “buzz words” to catch the attention of MRCOG examiner sand make its inclusion in the exam databases irresistible! It would be a killer “structured discussion” in the Part 3 and would sink most candidates in the Part 2.
Many of the questions are not true EMQs as they have more than one correct answer. I have tried to include all the facts I think might feature in the exam and packing more than one into a question reduces the total number of questions and makes the document a bit more manageable. It also reduces the amount of typing I have to do.
Abbreviations.
