primary ovarian insufficiency 2016 a clinical guide to early menopause

nanette f. santoro

presenting the most current and relevant information on the diagnosis and management of primary ovarian insufficiency, also known as premature ovarian failure (poi/pof), this book presents two equally important voices. the first is the scientific, evidence-based voice discussing the latest information on poi/pof in a concise and logical fashion: etiologies, symptoms, genetics, mechanisms, associated conditions, as well as psychological and lifestyle considerations. the second voice presents the first-person stories of affected women, who are often faced with a diagnosis of irreversible infertility at a very young age and who somehow learn to live with great uncertainty about their ability to create a family – a core identity issue for many women. it is thus not simply a clinical, case-based presentation, but a more collaborative effort between clinicians who are well-versed in the field and women who have poi/pof. primary ovarian insufficiency: a clinical guide to early menopause will therefore be an excellent practical yet personal reference for ob/gyns, reproductive medicine specialists, and any clinician, nurse or health care worker treating women living with poi/pof.
