Sexual health encompasses a broad range of interlinked mental, physical and emotional issues, reflecting how well-being, illness or a particular problem can influence a woman's sexuality and affect not only her but also her family, relationships, work and her own hopes and fears. Women's Sexual Health is a comprehensive reference and text book that holistically covers the full range of women's health issues from the young adolescent woman through to the post menopausal woman. This book gives a holistic and balanced view of women's sexual well-being and of the inseparability of physical and mental health.

The third edition of this successful book draws on a wealth of research and contributors' professional experience to provide a fully up-to-date and comprehensive textbook of women's sexual health.

Section one: WOMEN TODAY sensitively explores sexuality and personal issues for women at different stages throughout their lives, and how these areas may be influenced by culture, ethnicity, the environment, sexual orientation and lifestyle.

Section two: FERTILITY covers childbearing issues including sexuality during and after pregnancy, contraception, unplanned pregnancy and the management of sub fertility.

Section three: WOMEN'S HEALTH ISSUES, concentrates on specific women's health problems, such as breast screening and cervical screening. This section also includes chapters on the menopause, PMS, sexual health, continence issues, gynaecological problems and the care and practical treatment women need when ill or requiring surgery.

Women's sexual health is an invaluable resource for nurses and other health professionals
