Abstract

Gynecological and obstetric health is closely linked to female psychological well-being and calls for a holistic bio-psychosocial and life span approach. The first section of the current contribution offers a short overview of selected gynecological disorders related to the menstrual cycle including menstrual cycle disorders, premenstrual syndrome/premenstrual dysphoric disorder, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, and infertility. Sexual dysfunctions and urinary incontinence are presented in the section on gynecological disorders not related to the menstrual cycle. Finally, psychosocial aspects of obstetric health and menopause are discussed.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
