This text explores the links between sleep and hormones in women and the implications this has for the reproductive life-cycle. The various stages of menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause are correlated with the sleep disorders likely to be associated and their possible treatments. All professional clinician readers will better understand the problems their patients may develop in relation to this much neglected but highly important aspect of health.
