Menstrual problems are among the most common reasons for primary care and specialist referral. Therefore, it is important for all gynaecologists and primary care practitioners to have a basic understanding of menstrual reproductive physiology to enable them to counsel women safely and accurately. This second edition has been comprehensively updated to reflect current clinical practice and new research. The contents cover the diagnosis, management and treatment - both medical and surgical - of a wide range of menstrual disorders, including excessive menstrual loss; fibroids; dysmenorrhoea; endometriosis; chronic pelvic pain; delayed menarche; premature ovarian failure; polycystic ovary syndrome; and premenstrual syndrome. This is a perfect introduction for any gynaecologist who needs an accessible and concise introduction to modern management of menstrual problems. It also acts as an ideal revision guide for candidates preparing for the Part 2 MRCOG examination, fully covering the RCOG curriculum for menstrual problems.
