Overview

Women’s Gynecologic Health, Second Edition equips students and practicing clinicians with comprehensive information about women’s gynecologic health, including health promotion, maintenance and treatment. Based on the most recent research, the authors provide authoritative content written from a feminist perspective.

Completely updated and revised, this second edition includes four new chapters on diagnosis of pregnancy at the gynecologic visit, women’s health after bariatric surgery, sexual assault, and urinary tract infections. In addition, the chapter on gynecologic health care for sexual and gender minorities has been expanded to include care not only for lesbians, but also for women who are bisexual or transgender.

Key features include:
• Clinical considerations specific to the different physical and psychosocial life stages of women
• Emphasis on physiologic mechanisms in order to enhance understanding of normal and abnormal processes
• Evidence-based content
• Content and presentation suitable for students and practicing clinicians
