This book aims to address some common problems which are seen regularly in gynaecology, sexual and reproductive health, but are often not considered in great detail. It is designed to provide direction on subjects which are peripheral to a specialty, but have a significant impact on patients' lives nonetheless, and require expertise and intervention. These include cases on contraception and sexual health in transgender individuals, female genital mutilation, cervical screening in pregnancy, perimenopause, domestic violence, contact tracing and contraception.

We hope it is helpful to hospital doctors, GPs, nurses, allied health care professionals and students alike.

Mind the Gaps will help readers deal effectively with clinical and ethical dilemmas they may face in their practice, reducing the likelihood that problems are overlooked and ultimately improving outcomes for patients.
