Description

Every woman needs to know the facts about herself. "The A-Z of Woman's Health" puts those facts at her fingertips, providing information on all aspects of female life: physical conditions, reproduction and childbearing, hygiene and diet, drug treatments and medical investigations, heart examination, contraception, infertility, adoption, rape, cancer - and much more besides. Written in easily understandable language and complemnted by many diagrams and photographs, this guide offers advice which is both practical and sympathetic. For this new edition Derek Llewellyn-Jones has fully updated existing entries, for example those on cervical smears and hormone replacement therapy, and added new ones on such topics as AIDS, premenstrual syndrome, and the latest developments in "in-vitro" fertilization. Derek Llewellyn-Jones is the author of "Every Man","Understanding Sexuality", "Everygirl" and "Everywoman".show more
