A gynaecologist explains how to make the best choices for female reproductive health in this easy-to-read guide. It is designed for every woman who has wished for an unhurried, personal conversation with a sympathetic doctor who will answer her questions about reproductive health. Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, a gynaecologist practising for more than 25 years, presents a complete and up-to-date guide to a healthy reproductive system for women in their teens through middle age. The volume responds to questions about the gynaecological issues that concern women today, including sexual activity, contraception and family planning. It covers how the female body works, what problems may arise and what solutions are available; in short, it seeks to enable women to become better prepared to participate in their own health care and to make healthy decisions.
