Reproductive medicine is the most dynamic area within obstetrics and gynecology and, arguably, the most complicated. An explosion of scientific understanding and technological capabilities - particularly in contraception, infertility and menopause - has transformed the specialty into a high-profile subject that touches upon endocrinology, embryology, andrology, surgery, social science, and practical law and ethics. The Oxford American Handbook of Reproductive
Medicine provides a practical overview of the reproductive system and a systematic approach to its disorders, covering diagnosis, assessment, and ongoing management with particular emphasis on common and important presentations. Concise, readable, and pocket-sized, this handbook is useful for medical
students, primary care clinicians, and ob/gyn residents as a ready reference for daily practice.
