Disorders of menstruation are a major cause of morbidity in women. The treatment of such conditions presents an enormous clinical challenge, especially since some of the treatments used can themself result in further menstrual and hormonal complications. Clinical disorders of the endometrium and menstrual cycle provides the first in-depth review of current knowledge of the pathophysiology, investigation, and treatment of menstruation disorders encompassing menorrhagia, premenstrual syndrome, amenorrhoea and troublesome bleeding with contraceptive steroids or hormone replacement therapy. The emphasis of the book is on the practical management of these common clinical conditions. Included are chapter outlining menstruation from a cultural and historical perspective, as well as from the woman's point of view. Whilst this is an important work for gynaecologists and family practitioners, it will also be of great interest to a wider audience concerned with women's health.
