Taking Charge of Your Fertility is a comprehensive book that explains in lucid, assured terms how to practice the fertility awareness method (FAM), a natural, scientifically proven but little-known form of birth control. Author Toni Weschler has been teaching fertility awareness for almost 20 years, and it's only just now gaining in popularity. As the book explains, by using simple fertility signs including peaks in morning body temperature and changes in cervical position and cervical mucus, it's possible to determine when ovulation is taking place. Fertility awareness is therefore useful for not only couples who are trying to conceive, but for those who are aiming to avoid pregnancy without the use of chemical contraceptives. It will be of special interest to those women who have suffered from infertility; many FAM practitioners have told the author that by filling in the detailed charts in the book, they've realised that they were chronically miscarrying, even when their doctors told them they weren't conceiving at all. As the book explains, by charting body temperature, it's simple to tell when pregnancy has occurred--and when there's danger of miscarriage. Taking Charge of Your Fertility also explains how to choose the sex of your baby by timing intercourse according to certain fertility signs. It also features thorough, easy-to-understand explanations of hormones, the menstrual cycle and menopause, along with fertility tests and treatments and their long- and short-term side effects, plus a top-notch resource section. This is recommended for any woman who wants to better understand her body. --Erica Jorgensen --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Every woman should learn about their own cycle. Every woman should know what their cycle looks like so they will be able to conceive, prevent conception, or know when something is wrong.
Too many of us have been told that you ovulate on day 14 and have cycles of 28 days. I just ovulated on cycle day 21 and I’m expecting a cycle length of 32 days. Get to know your body, it’s worth it.
I was shocked that I didn't have a clue about how my body worked, and bewildered that this invaluable information isn't taught to girls at school. Instead the pill is touted as the only long-term solution to birth control with the side effects conveniently brushed under the carpet.
Even though I read it cover-to-cover, I still go back to it frequently to remind myself of certain things. The information about charts, temperatures, cervical fluid, menstruation, what's normal vs what's not, is invaluable.
I would highly recommend this book to every female! Only wished I'd known this information earlier..
Great book, really really useful, tells you everything you need to know about female fertility and how to get in control - as much as we can anyway!
I bought this book for a friend and wanted her to know what she needed to, ready for when she needed it!
