The November 7th card according to MMAWeekly:

A Nov. 7 fight that was bound to determine a contender to Strikeforce 145-pound women’s champion Cris "Cyborg" Santos is off.

Sources informed on Tuesday that the showdown between Erin Toughill (10-2-1) and Marloes Coenen (16-3), scheduled for the undercard of Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers, is off the card.  Toughill had to withdraw due to an undisclosed medical condition

Then the November 20th card according to MMAJunkie:

A highly anticipated female matchup between Sarah Kaufman (10-0) and Takayo Hashi (12-1) has been scrapped from the upcoming "Strikeforce Challengers V: Woodley vs. Bears" event.

No reason was given as to why Kaufman was scratched from the card, but it doesn't appear to be because of an injury.  According to her, she could still possibly fight before the year is out.
