This is a large-format colour-illustrated guide to human reproduction, best described by the authors themselves: "This book offers accessible information about the anatomy of men and women, the physiological steps that lead to conception and gestation and birth, and the means we have to control these events. We hope that high school and college students, young adults, men and women facing decisions about fertility, and the clinicians who care for them will use this book's illustrations and text to pierce the mystery and misinformation that sometimes surrounds these issues. By taking readers step-by-step through the development of egg and sperm, fertilization, implantation, embryonic and fetal growth, and birth as well as methods of birth control, termination of pregnancy, treatment for infertile couples, and menopause, this book hopes to contribute to both the knowledge and the awe that surround human reproduction.
