Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to introduce the second issue of the “Journal of the Turkish-German Gynecological Association (J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc)” in the publishing year of 2021. This issue is consisted of eight articles and one review that we hope you will read with interest.

Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) can analyze metabolite content in biological fluids with great accuracy using conventional MR imaging. You will read an intersting study determining and comparing metabolite content of growing follicles in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) using MRS.

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) are characterized by somatic and psychologic symptoms that arise at the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and subside with menstruation. You will read a comprehensive review on the subject.

Also you will get the occasion to read a meta-analysis aiming to compare the effect of laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy (LSH) with endometrial ablation (EA) in terms of general and menstrual-related quality of life in women opting for surgical treatment for abnormal uterine bleeding.

Dear Esteemed Readers,

During the years, the number of submitted papers increased remarkably from all over the world. In this issue, we have made a plan to give most of our space to the publication of Original Articles. This was to publish accepted material without further delay. One of our missions is education and I assure you that we will continue to include education articles, videos and quizes.

We hope this issue of our journal will contribute to the free dissemination of scientific knowledge. Thank you in advance for your contributions. Please visit us online at www.jtgga.org and keep in touch with us by following us on Twitter @JtggaOfficial. We look forward to sharing with you the latest research.
