long delivery time Apr 5, 2008
this product took forever to arrive... over the 21 business days... when i placed a 2 star review i was sent an email asking me to remove my opinions. now that the book has actually arrived i am redoing my review with more stars. the book was in great condition and had no tears, stains, folds, or markings. if you have a month to wait around on it to be delivered i would recommend buying from this user.
Good NFP info when healthy people are trying to conceive Oct 22, 2001
This book does a good job of explaining how to use the methods of natural family planning (NFP) with the goal of conceiving. I had taken a NFP course before I was married to learn how to prevent conception, and this book took that knowledge and helped me learn how to apply it to trying to conceive.
I would agree with other comments that it is not for those who are having great difficulty conceiving and are facing infertility issues.
I was not looking for information about herbs or alternative therapies, so I cannot comment on those sections of the book.
This is great for those wanting details about the physiology of conception.
I don't recomend this book Oct 18, 2001
This book is OK for someone who doesn't know her menstual cycle, has never monitored BBT or cervical mucus, has never tried ovulation predictor kit... I mean, WHO HAS NOT STARTED TRYING YET. Otherwise, you won't find anything new here.
This book introduce many herbs to boost your fertility. But NATURAL doesn't mean harmless. Each herb is explained like "estrogen promoting" "Progesteron promoting" but it doesn't tell you WHEN of your cycle you should take it. Don't guinea-pig your fertility.
Some good info, some outdated info Apr 3, 2001
Let me begin by saying that the first book anyone should read if they are trying to conceive is Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Wechsler. This book has some good information and recommendations. I tried to conceive for 2 years. I began taking evening primrose oil daily after reading this book. About 6 months later, I discovered the website tryingtoconceive.com and learned that evening primrose oil should only be taken prior to ovulation because it can cause uterine contractions and interfere with the implantation of an egg. After discontinuing the EPO from ovulation to menstruation, I conceived within 3 months. So, I guess you could say, had I NOT read this book, I may have been pregnant sooner.
Where is the proof? Mar 5, 2000
This book is for people who do not have infertility issues. It does not address any real actions for people with proven infertility. It is a waste of time for the infertile reader.
