Understanding Fertility

Paperback

Price: $19.99

Overview

Infertility can have devastating physical, emotional and financial effects on people affected. It is a common problem, but can be hard to talk about, and hard to understand. In this concise book, Dr Kovacs, a reproductive gynaecologist who has spent the past 40 years working with patients facing fertility problems, focuses on and unpicks key misconceptions. In his clear explanations, he covers the basic physiology of conceiving, and describes the areas that have to be explored for those who have not yet been able to conceive. Specific chapters cover the three major problem areas: lack of releasing eggs, sperm problems, and abnormalities of the female passages. Treatment options are discussed for each of these areas, including technical details and a brief readable overview of their history. The many ways of parenting which are now available are also detailed. This is a recommended read for couples wanting to conceive, their friends and families, and anyone who wants to understand fertility.

Reviews
'Dealing with infertility can be stressful and time consuming, often compounded by a lack of understanding due to inadequate explanations. This book interprets all the medical and technical language; it explains the terminology, the problems and their treatments simply and understandably. Unusually, in discussing many specific points, it acknowledges that there is no clear answer, but describes the different views and provides a conclusion. There are no simplistic explanations - rather, this is a book for those who want to know all the details. It is well illustrated and provides a balanced perspective on contemporary approaches to the management of infertility.' Ian Cooke, University of Sheffield, UK, and Chairman (1996-9) and later President (2001-4) of the British Fertility Society
