While many other textbooks concentrate on simply one aspect of women's health (i.e., sexual or reproductive, but not both), we offer the reader a single, comprehensive, multidisciplinary source that will detail all of the essential points relevant to any clinician involved in the care of women's reproductive and sexual issues, as female sexuality, fertility, and reproduction are inextricably tied. Because clinicians who treat women in any of these areas often need to reference data in one of the other related fields, we anticipate that this book will significantly reduce the need to consult multiple sources, and thus allow for the more efficient practice of medicine.
