From the moment she becomes aware of her womanhood, every girl will have questions she need reliable answers for, regarding her reproductive and/or sexual health. This continues life-long. This may be merely out of curiosity or because there is an ongoing issue affecting her or a loved one. In this information age, there is a vast amount of sources to get answers for practically any question but, how do you separate the wheat from the chaff? There is a lot of rubbish out there. That can be a challenge.
This book, written by someone with dedication to his profession and who truly cares, sets out to overcome that challenge in the most concise, accessible and detailed manner. What's more, it is all done in plain English. Any unavoidable medical jargon is fully explained. Here, in very clear language, you have detailed information about all the important topics in the subject of female sexual and reproductive health. It is a fact of life that the quality of service patients receive from their respective doctors is variable. If you have seen your specialist and want a second opinion, this resource will serve that purpose comprehensively and, almost certainly, to your satisfaction. If you are just somebody who is curious, then this is for you too. You can read this comfortably in the knowledge that it is a work of an experienced practising specialist active in the field of clinical and academic obstetrics and gynaecology, including an eight year stint at Europe’s biggest Women’s Hospital. This book would also make a very valuable resource to those in medical training, gynaecology nurses and those aspiring to pursue the Obstetrics and Gynaecology specialty.
