However, most books on women's health refuse to accept this last point, preaching a boring life of abstinence, purity, and no fun. However, just now and then, when a symptom does start worrying you, but you've got no time to see a doctor, check out this book.The flowcharts will tell you within seconds, what's wrong with you, whether you need a doctor, or just an early night. As the follow-up to the best-selling 'Bloke's Diagnose-It-Yourself Guide to Health', this book uses the same successful flowchart format, covering all the common symptoms that might worry women from the ages 18-45, and dispenses authoritative, non-preaching advice on what to do.
