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.
