This well-illustrated publication provides concise yet comprehensive practical information on the modern-day approach to the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. It starts from basic principles of reproductive physiology, before moving on to the medical causes of infertility, and then describes and explains the full armory of techniques from IVF to ICSI and even newer technologies used to treat infertility in all its manifestations. The aim throughout is to explain issues clearly, simply and directly in such a way that will be understood by doctors, scientists and nurses alike. By combining basic science and medical aspects, along with 'how it is done' descriptions of techniques and medical interventions, this book offers an unsurpassed introductory account of this fast moving area and is highly suitable for the full range of personnel involved in looking after the infertile patient, including trainees in medicine and nursing, clinical embryologists, andrologists, ultrasonographers and counsellors.
