The first, definitive text on female sexual dysfunction, this major new book summarizes the current body of knowledge in the field, traces the history of developments in the area, and identifies work still needed in the future.

Reflecting a multidisciplinary approach to the subject, the book details the methods and materials for ensuring the appropriate management of women with sexual health problems, and concentrates on the presentation of evidence-based data concerning the physiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of sexual function and dysfunction in women. The inclusion of 'difficult cases' also enhances the use of text as a practical guide to all disciplines concerned with the field of female sexual dysfunction.

This important work will become a key resource for basic science researchers, endocrinologists, gynecologists, psychologists, urologists, health care clinicians, and anyone else interested in women's sexual health. All proceeds are donated to the International Society for the Study of Women's Sexual Health.
