Significant advances have been made in treatment strategies in adult and adolescent women's health over the past decade, particularly in relation to reproductive control. The Oxford Handbook of Reproductive Medicine & Family Planning provides practical, evidence-based information on the care and management of adolescents, reproductive age females, and to a lesser extent males. Divided into three main sections, it follows chronological age up to the menopause covering areas such as the embryological development of the reproductive system; puberty and the normal course, and dysfunctions associated with it; dysfunctions of the normal menstrual cycle; the different types of male and female contraceptive methods, and the investigation and management of the infertile couple. This is an essential resource for all practitioners, trainees and students in reproductive medicine.
