This book was the first English language translation of a complete Chinese clinical manual on TCM gynecology and obstetrics. It was the textbook for the OB-GYN class at the Zhejiang College of Chinese Medicine in Hangzhou, PRChina. It covers the disease causes and mechanisms and the pattern discrimination treatment for 35 commonly encountered complaints. The book is divided into five sections: 1) menstrual diseases, 2) abnormal vaginal discharge diseases, 3) gestational & birthing diseases, 4) postpartum diseases, and 5) miscellaneous diseases. Because Chinese gynecology in China means treatment via the internal administration of Chinese herbs, all the treatments in this book are herbal ones. If one wants to buy a single book covering all of Chinese gynecology in an introductory, survey fashion, this is the book to buy.

Students of Chinese medicine will also find the study questions at the end of each section to be a useful aid for exam preparation and continuing study.
