Divided into seven sections, the book provides step by step guidance on each stage of the process, from initial examination and identifying the causes of infertility in both females and males, to ovarian stimulation and assisted reproduction techniques. The final section is dedicated to laboratory management covering topics such as follicular fluid screening and oocyte assessment, culture systems, and cryopreservation. The fourth edition includes new chapters on molecular mechanisms such as endometrial receptivity, and implantation; and current trends such as the embryoscope and assisted hatching. The comprehensive text is further enhanced by case studies, clinical photographs, diagrams, flowcharts and tables.

The Oxford Handbook of Reproductive Medicine and Family Planning, second edition provides essential practical information in the care of the adolescent and reproductive age females and males. Evidence-based and concise, this handbook is the must-have resource for all practitioners, trainees, and students in sexual and reproductive healthcare.Fully updated for the second edition, this handbook now contains additional practical guidance, algorithms and diagrams, a new chapter on recurrent miscarraige, as well as expanded informaiton on topics such as fragile X syndrome, PCOs and hirsuitism. It follows chronological age up to the menopause, covering areas such as the reproductive system, puberty, the menstrual cycle, contraceptive methods, and infertility. This is the essential guide to all aspects of reproductive medicine, family planning and sexual health, providing all the vital information the reader needs.
Now in a completely revised and expanded third edition, including six new chapters, this user-friendly textbook offers a succinct overview of both the medical and surgical management of reproductive disorders, as well as coverage of associated imaging modalities. Included here are updated chapters on major reproductive endocrinology and infertility issues, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), pubertal disorders, amenorrhea, menopause, management of endometriosis and fibroids (including interventional radiology), laboratory and clinical aspects of assisted reproductive technologies (ART), imaging modalities such as ultrasonography and sonohysterography, and hysteroscopic and laparoscopic techniques. New chapters include an expansion of female infertility and fertility, preimplantation diagnosis and screening, osteoporosis, and contraception and sterilization. In addition, each chapter opens with a clinical case presentation and a list of keywords relevant to the topic at hand. Residents, fellows, and new clinicians of obstetrics and gynecology interested in reproductive endocrinology and infertility will find Clinical Reproductive Medicine and Surgery: A Practical Guide a valuable and focused reference.
While many other textbooks concentrate on simply one aspect of women’s health (i.e., sexual or reproductive, but not both), we offer the reader a single, comprehensive, multidisciplinary source that will detail all of the essential points relevant to any clinician involved in the care of women’s reproductive and sexual issues, as female sexuality, fertility, and reproduction are inextricably tied. Because clinicians who treat women in any of these areas often need to reference data in one of the other related fields, we anticipate that this book will significantly reduce the need to consult multiple sources, and thus allow for the more efficient practice of medicine.
42 Authors cover all of the reproductive endocrine problems commonly encountered in the practice of obstetrics and gynecology. A question and answer study guide is also available.
Nowhere has the impact of ultrasonography been more dramatic than in reproductive medicine, particularly in the diagnosis of female and male infertility, the management of assisted reproductive procedures and the monitoring of early pregnancy. This authoritative textbook encompasses the complete role of ultrasonography in the evaluation of infertility and assisted reproduction. Covering every indication for ultrasonography in assisted reproductive technology, this will prove an invaluable resource in the evaluation of the infertile patient and optimization of the outcome of treatment. The interpretation of images to improve fertility and reproductive success is emphasized throughout. Ultrasonography in Reproductive Medicine and Infertility is essential reading for clinicians working both in IVF clinics and in office practice. It will be particularly useful to gynecologists, infertility specialists, ultrasonographers and radiologists working in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, assisted reproductive technology, ultrasonography and radiology.
Bioethics has developed over the last few decades into a major field of inquiry. With advances in medicine progressively transforming our understanding of what constitutes life, there is need for a medical ethics to address many of the issues and challenges arising, particularly in the fields of genetics and reproduction. Of central significance are serious moral dilemmas confronting medical experts which require a theological perspective. Yet it is secular bioethics that is defining what constitutes human life and it is secular bioethics that is influencing policy on matters which concern us all and are likely to have grave societal impact. Is it right for a woman to act as surrogate for her sister? Or for a childless couple to resort to artificial insemination by donor? What does Islam have to say?
