Published on behalf of the British Menopause Society, this is a practical and
sensitive collection of articles on common sexual health issues which concern menopausal women and their partners. Many older women have an increased sexual response owing to a reduced fear of pregnancy, the end of menstrual distress and no longer needing contraception; however, with increased age comes associated sexual problems for both men and women.

Edited and written by leading specialists, each chapter is a minimum of 1500 words plus 10-15 up-to-date references for further reading. This book is recommended to GPs, nurses, and all professionals working in family planning and genitourinary medicine.
