About the Authors
  • This unique source of reference provides a comprehensive guide to the adverse side-effects of many commonly prescribed drugs on fertility and sexual health. More than 150 drugs are listed in this compilation, and the evidence linking them with infertility and sexual dysfunction is carefully reviewed. The volume is designed to provide a rapid source of reference to alert doctors and pharmacists to these hazardous side-effects. The volume also includes an introductory account of the reproductive process and a review of the mechanisms by which these drugs can interfere or inhibit reproduction. Another important theme of the volume is the effect of social and recreational drugs and environmental agents on reproductive health.

    • Unique - no other publication provides such a source of information
    • Relevant to all medical disciplines, since it deals with the side-effects of many commonly prescribed drugs
    • Highlights a common problem which has a profound impact on patients but of which many prescribers are unaware

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a handy preliminary reference." Armand Lione, Reproductive Toxicology

    "...this book would be useful to physicians and scientists concerned about the side effects of drugs prescribed to patients, and curious about their mode of interaction with the male and female reproductive and sexual functions." Claude Gagnon MSc, PhD, Annals RCPSC

    "...this is a well researched and rather complete handbook that a wide range of clinicians will find a useful reference for patients with reproductive concerns during medical treatment. I suspect it will turn up on the shelves of family doctors and reproductive endocrinologists alike." Eric A. Widra, Fertility and Sterility
