La Marca-Ghaemmaghami, Pearl; Ehlert, Ulrike (2015). Gynecological Health: Psychosocial Aspects. In: Wright, James D. International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences (Second Edition). Amsterdam: Elsevier, 462-468.

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.
