Disorders of menstruation are a major cause of morbidity in women. The treatment of such conditions presents an enormous clinical challenge, especially since some of the treatments used can themself result in further menstrual and hormonal complications. Clinical disorders of the endometrium and menstrual cycle provides the first in-depth review of current knowledge of the pathophysiology, investigation, and treatment of menstruation disorders encompassing menorrhagia, premenstrual syndrome, amenorrhoea and troublesome bleeding with contraceptivesteroids or hormone replacement therapy. The emphasis of the book is on the practical management of these common clinical conditions. Included are chapter outlining menstruation from a cultural and historical perspective, as well as from the woman's point of view. Whilst this is an important workfor gynaecologists and family practitioners, it will also be of great interest to a wider audience concerned with women's health.

Editorial Reviews

`'It is a sign of a good reference book when you look up a specific question and become totally engrossed in another chapter that happened to catch your eye. This is true of this weighty medical textbook...beautiful textbook...All the chapters are short and clearly written, and it easy to findyour way around...Trainee gynaecologists will certainly find it invaluable. It should be in every general practice surgery library as a textbook we can refer to for an up-tdo-date view on the treatments omenorrhagia, dysmenorrhoea and pre-menstrual tension in primary and secondary care.''Dr Dally Hope, Trends in Uroloyg Gynaecology and Sexual Health , May/June 1999
