The answer is no!  There are some great behind the scenes work being done to help you out.  For this week, you might wonder, can I just type in something like, ovarian cancer during pregnancy, and get some good stuff?  And the answer to this is, yes, you can.  After entering that search, look for the "Best Match" button to get a list of articles based on relevancy.
