This review is from: Taking Charge Of Your Fertility: The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control, Pregnancy Achievement and Reproductive Health: The Definitive Guide to ... Pregnancy Achievement and Reproductive Wealth (Paperback)
This is a very informative book and should be read by anybody wanting to get pregnant or just have a better idea of what's happening in their bodies every month. Bought this book in June after spending 18 months trying for baby number 2 (took us 3 years and hormones to conceive my first child). Due to irregular cycles, PCOS and thyroid problems I just bought it out of intrest whilst waiting for the referral for fertility treatment. Although I knew a lot of the facts in the book the system of monitoring was really useful and made me for the first time in my life feel in charge of my cycle. I only ovulate naturally a few times a year but monitoring my cycles suddenly took away all wasted false hopes as I knew I hadn't ovulated and there was no point wasting money on pregnancy test although I was weeks late. After 3 month monitoring I one day waked up seeing the signs of being fertile. Filled with confidence from the book I called my poor husband home home from a conferance on the other side of the country (he thought I was nuts) and guess what, I got pregnant! I realise we had a great deal of luck as well but without this book I would have gone down the route of fertility drugs for the second time in my life by now. It's not a miracle book and it won't cure infertility. But for the many people that like me suffers from subfertility, it give you the chance of optimising your chances naturally before going for fertility treatment.
