Editorial Reviews

Between an introductory brief history of headache, and an epilogue, are 28 papers (two translated from the French and nine original contributions published for the first time) in six sections--each section covering a different aspect of the headache-sexuality continuum: headaches related to coitus; headaches and the menstrual cycle; headaches and oral contraceptives; headaches during pregnancy, childbirth, and puerperium; headaches and interpersonal relations; and testosterone levels, AIDS, menopause, and gender--some neglected topics in headache research.
