This is an indispensable text for an acupuncturist treating fertility. It is by far and away the best, most comprehensive, informative and intelligently written textbook in this area on the market. It covers basic physiology of the menstrual cycle from a conventional medical and TCM perspective, it instructs on diagnosis of pathology and treating in time with the menstrual cycle. Common pathologies such as PCOS and endometriosis are discussed in depth, and there is a new section (since the first edition) on TCM and IVF. This is not a book for a layperson; but for a practitioner, it is superbly good.
