This practical guide provides an up-to-date and concise account of many obstetric and gynaecological conditions based on evidence-based medicine.

The 50 topics covered include menstrual disorders, abnormal PAP smears, ovarian cysts, subfertility, vaginal discharge, contraception and hormonal replacement therapy, pregnancy and its complications as well as common obstetrics and gynaecology (O&G) investigations.

The book includes the use of flow charts to simplify the description of investigations and treatments of the various common conditions in obstetrics and gynaecology. This is particularly useful for doctors in the primary healthcare setting in their day-to-day clinical practice. It also contains criteria for referral to OBGYN doctors. It will also serve as an essential guide for medical students and nursing staff and a handy summary for OBGYN specialists.
