Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, by Salvo and Anderson. Within the course of Dr. Johnson.

Chapter 11 is about issues related to the reproductive system including assessment of the reproductive system, breast implants, how to identify reproductive system disease & disorder, risk factors for STDs, and the life stages & pathology of reproductive system. This chapter shows the reproductive organs, roles, and functions of hormones, women in prenatal cycle, pregnancy, STD transmission, and other considerations.
