Sexual health encompasses a broad range of interlinked mental, physical and emotional issues, reflecting how well-being, illness or a particular problem can influence a woman's sexuality and affect not only her but also her family, relationships, work and her own hopes and fears. Women's Sexual Health is a comprehensive reference and text book that holistically covers the full range of women's health issues from the young adolescent woman through to the post-menopausal woman. This book gives a holistic and balanced view of women's sexual well-being and of the inseparability of physical and mental health. The third edition of this successful book draws on a wealth of research and contributors' professional experience to provide a fully up-to-date and comprehensive textbook of women's sexual health.
