Overview

This book is for any woman who has ever been too embarrassed to ask her gynecologist a question because it might seem trivial, or who has forgotten to ask in the rush of being examined, or who has emerged frustrated because she couldn't understand the doctor's hurried explanation.

In simple, direct language, a respected gynecologist, writing with his wife, a psychiatrist, addresses more than two hundred of the questions women most commonly ask their doctors -- or wish they could ask: Why do I flood? What's the safest form of birth control? Why don't I get an orgasm? What's the best time in my cycle for conception? Why do I keep getting yeast infections? Why do I have such bad cramps? What can I do to prevent breast cancer? What can I do about these hot flashes? Are Pap smears reliable?

Sixteen chapters cover every aspect of gynecologic care, from the menstrual cycle to contraception and pregnancy through menopause. The doctors also tell you all you need to know to cope with such problems as PMS, complications of early pregnancy, endometriosis, sexual dysfunction, yeast and bladder infections, sexually transmitted diseases, and cancer. The book also includes a chapter on the breast.
