This book takes the life cycle approach to the science of gynaecology, and is divided into 3 distinct sections: general gynecology, reproductive endocrinology and assisted conception, and gynecologic oncology. Within these sections, particular attention is paid to crucial issues such as contraception and sub-fertility, STDs and pelvic diseases, menopause and cancer screening. All the contributors are experienced professionals, who provide a wealth of information as well as guidance concerning potential problems faced in day to day practice, and reference to the latest available technologies. "Essentials of Gynecology" can be used as a reference book for general practitioners and trainees in gynecology, and as a textbook for students, alongside the companion volume "Essentials of Obstetrics".
