Infertility and Assisted Reproduction presents, in detail, the techniques and philosophies behind medical procedures of infertility and assisted reproduction. This comprehensive textbook, with authors from 18 different countries, encompasses the latest research into the physiology of reproduction, infertility evaluation and treatment, and assisted reproduction, and concludes with perspectives on the ethical dilemmas faced by clinicians and professionals.Table of Contents ForewordPart I.
