An authoritative account of the causes of infertility that fully explores the clinical assessment of patients and covers the decision-making behind treatment options. The content follows the MRCOG syllabus as well as delving deeper into subjects covered by the RCOG Advanced Training Skills Modules (ATSMs), leaving readers well prepared for their examinations. Written by nationally recognised leaders in the field, this volume concisely reviews contemporary clinical practice. Using an aetiology-based approach, chapters discuss ovulatory dysfunction, endometriosis, male infertility, uterine/tubal factors and unexplained infertility. The increasing use of third-party reproduction and surrogacy is explored, along with the psychosocial aspects of this type of treatment. Ethical dilemmas surrounding reproductive medicine and their management are covered in depth. With an emphasis on practical approaches to the delivery and organisation of clinical and laboratory services, readers learn how to ensure the support and care they offer is of the highest quality.
