The infertile couple has been the subject of many texts, but rarely of one like this, which stresses the familiar diagnostic tests and therapeutic maneuvers and their proper usage. This book places a welcome emphasis upon the art of caring for the infertile couple, with the chapters on definition and causes of infertility, and on the postcoital test, tubal insufflation, endometrial biopsy, basal body temperature, evaluation of the male factor, and management of infertility. The chapter on the cervical (insemination) factor and the one on therapeutic donor insemination concisely present the practical aspects of the problems and procedures in this area today.

As opportunities develop for a physician to receive training in endocrinology, surgery, psychiatry, marriage counseling, and male infertility, the fertility specialist will develop suitable attitudes and skills. And this, as the author so accurately maintains, will provide the best care for the infertile couple.
