Pick up the book that everyone is talking about: today’s most invaluable resource guide for every woman who needs more time to talk with her doctor. Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, a gynecologist in practice for more than 25 years, has written the most up-to-date and readily accessible guide available for women wanting to know more than just what their hurried doctor’s visit allows. This guide includes explanations of how exactly the body works, problems that may arise, and comprehensive solutions for women of all ages who are concerned with their reproductive health.
