This manual is a basic book to understand infertility and how to go about in management. Especially written for SAFOG countries in simple language, easy to understand and follow treatment protocols. This book consists of 12 chapters. The book commences with a thorough and easily understandable description of both male and female anatomy and physiology, which all readers need to understand. There is an extensive list of the possible causes of difficulty to conceive, both male and female, before describing the investigations that can be carried out. The book then concentrates on the possible treatments that may be considered, as well as general advice about personal health such as weight control and avoidance of smoking. The book also describes the value of counseling including explanation and reassurance. The authors have also devoted a chapter to practices that are not practiced in all clinics because of religious or moral objections, but are carried out in others, such as sperm and egg donation and surrogacy. This book is a very worthwhile read for all couples with difficulty conceiving, it is easy to read, and can be understood by the lay people without extensive medical knowledge, as well as introductory reading for medical, nursing and scientific staff commencing work in this area.
