A MUST read if trying to conceive

By Sheri, pregnant with 1st.

from Arkansas

Site Member

I was recommended this book from a friend that said she follwed what the book said and got pregnant in 3 months. I was skeptical but really wanted to get pregnant so I tried it. After reading the book my husband and I conceived after 2 months! It teaches you so much about your body and is a safe way to conceive or use as birth control.

Helped me diagnose PCOS

By Sarah, Proud Mom of Noak

from Redding, CA

Site Member

I have PCOS and was able to diagnose it before my doctors (yes, there were a few). This book helped me know what to look for and helped me figure out what wasn't working like it should. When I went to the doctor i was well informed of what was actually occurring. This book was very helpful and I have referred ti to many friends with and with out problems getting pregnant and even friends trying not to get pregnant.

BEST BOOK EVER for fertility

By mom of 1 & expecting

from GA

Site Member

I read this book and got pregnant after 3 months, I used the book to not get pregnant for over a year, and I have gotten pregnant three times since, using this BOOK. I miscarried my 2nd and 3rd... It helped me more than the ovulation predictors because I knew the DAY I ovulated, and I knew when I was most fertile. For someone who has a hard time getting pregnant... this is a must!

If you are a GIRL... YOU NEED THIS BOOK

By Happy Mommy

from GA

Site Member

Before this book.... I thought my cervix was a tumor that grew and shrunk from week to week.... I thought I might have CANCER! I felt so stupid when I read this book and realized that my "tumor" was a normal and very important part of my body. You will learn something if you read this book!

A Must Read for Every Woman

By Michelle, a new mom of one

from Southern California

Site Member

This book is fantastic. I recommend it to everyone I know regardless of whether they are TTC or not. I learned so much about my menstrual cycle and conception and my body that I never learned in any of my many biology and anatomy classes.

By Whitney TTC

I was given this book to read after trying for a year to become pregnant. It is so informative. It is easy to understand, and makes me feel confident about becoming pregnant. Hopefully it will work! Every woman should read this book, and every mother should give it to her daughter. My husband has even been interested in it!

I'm a doctor and was ...

By New Mom and Doc

from NY

Site Member

I'm a doctor and was recommended this book by colleagues in medicine to read while planning to have a baby. This empowers you by teaching you to understand your own body's natural patterns and signs. We didn't learn this in medical school and certainly dont teach it to women but we should!

If you are a woman, read this book!!

By Dwija, satisfied wife and mother of 2

from Southern California

Site Member

For too many women (not to mention men), the "monthly visitor" is a complete mystery. People count days, make guesses, worry, and sometimes dread, but really have no idea what's going on. Take control of not just your fertility, but your life! Every woman should read this enlightening book to make peace with her body and have a more fulfilling physical reltionship forever.

A womens must have!

By Shannen, TTC #1

from Moorpark, CA

Site Member

I can't believe I waited this long to buy this book! I have read up on getting pregnant in 8 other books, but this one makes it all make sense without spending a million dollars on ovulation predictor kits. I now understand my body. It's not hard reading either! I would reccomend this book to any women who is either trying to concieve or trying to prevent.

Misleading and maybe heartbreaking

By Clomidqueen

from Midwest

Site Member

As some of the other reviewers have pointed out, unless you're in your early 20s (and with NO health complications), this book is not for you. And, it's potentially heartbreaking to read something like this, making you feel like a failure as a woman. God gave modern medicine the ability to help women like me (and probably you), get pregnant with a little extra, medically -proven help. My advice: don't take medical advice from an author who isn't a qualified doctor. I also find it very disappointing that anything less than five stars seems to be "buried" in the reviews...hmm.
