Women of reproductive age are living in the most nourished and productive period of life. Generally, they are spirited and healthy. However, there is no doubt that many hormone-related disorders and fertility-related problems are apparent in this period. These include inflammatory diseases, menstruation-related disorders, sub- or infertility problems, pregnancy-related diseases, and various kinds of benign and/or malignant genito-urinary tract tumors. The preservation of reproductive function is of paramount importance for these women, contributing to a significant and big challenge in modern medicine. A better understanding of the pathophysiology of these disorders, and a continuous development of far-advanced new technology in the screening, monitoring, and managing of these disorders not only provide a better chance in the successful treatment for these disorders, but also for maintaining the anatomical and functional integrity in women. For example, with the aid of minimally invasive surgery and the combination of more effective medications in uterine fibroids, women can be managed conservatively with functional organ preservation in place of hysterectomy. In addition, assisted reproductive technology significantly helps many infertile couples to have their families.
In this Special Issue on Reproductive Health Concerns for Women, I would like to invite all experts to contribute to the field. Extensive systematic reviews, and meta-analyses, as well as original research ranging from the bench to clinical management are all welcome. Let us work together to do something positive for our world.
