Overview

Learn how to interpret menstrual cycle events as vital signs for women.

Irregularities in the pattern and amount of vaginal bleeding of uterine origin are often signs of pathology or an aberration in the function of the hypothalamic, pituitary, and ovarian system. The type of menstrual disorder when coupled to the women's age can give important signals as to the likely problem.

Disorders of Menstruation follows the reproductive lifetime of women, from prepubertal abnormalities through the years of potential child bearing to menopause and beyond. The authors provide a conceptual framework to understand the mechanisms responsible for abnormal menstrual bleeding or early pregnancy failure.

This clinically focused book is written for any practicing clinician who provides healthcare for girls and women. Disorders of Menstruation highlights accurate diagnostic algorithms that lead to evidence-based therapy or minimally invasive surgery using approaches that are practical, efficient, and cost-effective.

A new addition to the Gynecology in Practice series.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Kenan Rifat Omurtag, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a practical review of commonly encountered gynecological pathology throughout a women's life cycle using the menstrual cycle as its reference point.
Purpose: The authors rely on the menstrual cycle as a reference point in organizing the book, starting with prepuberty. The authors' practice experiences make it easy to understand these common problems and in doing so, they avoid exhaustive references to the literature that could be distracting to busy clinicians. The authors meet these goals nicely and provide a book that practicing gynecologists will find valuable.
Audience: It is intended for both practicing gynecologists and those in training. It might be especially helpful to physicians and midlevel providers who see patients in a primary care setting. The authors do a good job of maintaining this focus.
Features: The book reviews disorders of the menstrual cycle from prepuberty through menopause. The chapters that focus on the prepubertal and adolescent menstrual cycle are very valuable as they are rarely covered in other gynecology textbooks. Illustrations and pictures in these sections are particularly helpful as pediatric and adolescent gynecological pathology is not commonly encountered.
Assessment: Overall, this is a well-written clinical book that adequately targets its intended audience. It provides a quality, quick reference to common gynecologic issues. I particularly appreciate its emphasis on the menstrual cycle as a vital sign and reference point for evaluating common gynecological pathology. This book should be strongly considered by any busy clinician who takes care of women from prepuberty to menopause.
