Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, October 2005: There is a definite need for a comprehensive view of women's sexual health and reproductive health written by women who understand the implications of these disorders. Luckily, there is this book, which deals not only with women's sexual health, but also looks at problems of libido, intercourse, young people and sex, contraception, sexual abuse and the use of complementary medicines. The editor has even included a unique chapter on women with special needs, covering in some detail the cultural and religious aspects of sexuality and discussing the gynaecological problems that may be encountered in women of all major religions. The book is divided into three sections. Section One, ‘Women Today,' explores the concept of sexuality and well being within physical, psychological and social dimensions. Section Two, ‘Fertility,' examines issues surrounding female fertility. Section Three, ‘Women's Health Issues,' concentrates on specific female health problems. Of special note: all the contributing authors are nurses who have been chosen for their skill, expertise and knowledge of their individual subjects.
