A prominent gynecologist explains how to make the best choices for female reproductive health in this authoritative, easy-to-read guide

This book is for every woman who has wished for an unhurried, personal conversation with a sympathetic doctor who will answer her questions about reproductive health. Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, a gynecologist practicing for more than 25 years, presents a complete and up-to-date guide to a healthy reproductive system for women in their teens through middle age.

With warmth and understanding, Dr. Minkin and coauthor Carol V. Wright respond to questions about the gynecological issues that concern women today, including sexual activity, contraception, and family planning. Readers of The Yale Guide to Women’s Reproductive Health willlearn how the female body works, what problems may arise, and what solutions are available—in short, they will become better prepared to participate in their own health care and to make healthy decisions.

Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., is clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale University School of Medicine and has a private practice in the New Haven area. She is widely known in the field of gynecology and is interviewed regularly on public radio and by other media. She writes a monthly column for Prevention magazine. Carol V. Wright, Ph.D., writes on topics related to women’s health, travel, and cooking, and is the author of two books in the Blue Guide series: New York and Museums and Galleries of New York.
