5-0 out of 5 stars Wise Guide to Reproductive Health
Fertility Awareness is more than a reliable, low-tech way to prevent or achieve pregnancy based on changes in body temperature and cervical mucus.It's a wise way for women to become aware of the rhythms of their own bodies and for their partners to share in this awareness.This essential first step will help solve America's epidemic of reproductive problems ranging from painful menstrual cycles to loss of sex drive to infertility. Singer profoundly understands the myriad ways that diet, lifestyle and environment affect reproductive health and provides an excellentdiscussion of the vital role that traditional animal products and healthy fats play in reproductive health and the risks of supposedly healthy low-fat products, soyfoods and other highly processed modern food products.As a Clinical Nutritionist, I have worked with many infertile female clients, many of whom were "health conscious" vegetarians or near vegetarians.Nearly all of these women regained their fertility, strengthened their overall reproductive health and just plain felt better after removing soy foods from their diets and adopting a varied, omnivorous diet rich in both protein and fat.Men also benefit from eliminating soy foods because the plant estrogens lower testosterone levels, diminish the libido and adversely affect both the quality and quantity of sperm.In short, if you value your sexuality and reproductive health, follow ALL the excellent advice in this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars a must-read for every woman
Around the time I began using The Pill, a friend mentioned the fertility awareness method, FAM, to me. I wrote it off as the infamous "rhythm method." A year later, desperate to come off the Pill (not a good experience for me), I decided that FAM might be worth looking into.
5-0 out of 5 stars What a great resource for learning!
I bought this book when I recently attended a class given by Katie Singer on Fertility Awareness.I have been wanting to learn Fertility Awareness/Natural Family Planning for a long time for several reasons: to know more about my body and how exactly my cycles work, to gauge my gynecological health & have a tool for discovering problems, and to adhere to my church's teachings on birth control (I'm Catholic).

5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST book for beginning IVFers!!:)
I wish I would of found this book first!It's an easy read with so much valuable information.It covers everything from IVF lingo to sample cycles AND gives great commentary from women and men who have survived & succeeded with IVF.I couldn't put it down & constantly found myself sharing interesting info from the book with my husband.You won't be disappointed with this one!!!
2-0 out of 5 stars Good Info, But Trite and Patronising
The book is filled with good definitions about the winding road that is IVF-fertility treatment is packed with acronyms, abbreviations, and science, and the author does do a good job of explaining what all of the acronyms and abbreviations are.The book flows well and has wit, but the constant underlying message is one of success!IVF succeeds!Just keep your legs in the air/take to bed rest/keep thinking smiley happy positive thoughts and it always works!As someone who's been through a few rounds of IVF and ongoing still, it's not that easy for most people.IVF is hard enough without infusing constant messages of false hope-I feel the author is irresponsible in suggesting that IVF can be otherwise.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! A Must-Have for IVFers!
I am the kind of person who researches and reads EVERYTHING when they are faced with an issue or problem.Needless to say, I have purchased a multitude of IVF books, and this one is one of my favorites.It goes through the IVF process step-by-step, shares sample protocols, and explains ALL the medicines.In fact, I found myself going back and re-reading several parts of the book while in the midst of the IVF process.It's simply a must-have! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Thanks for my gorgeous baby.
The book covers fertility options in great depth and if it only suits dummies I am not sure what that says about the many experts out there who couldn't seem to solve my problem. It gave me questions and answers that the experts couldn't and after 8 years trying and many $ spent and with my biological clock about to expire - this gave me what I needed to ask the right questions, get the right tests and surgery done, and finally fall pregnant ! You've nothing to lose by reading it and checking if there is anything you might have missed elsewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Very Good IVF Resource
My Husband & I were getting ready to be thrown into the IVF arena. I had been looking for a resource book to help us through this daunting process but just couldn't find the right one. I went to the book store every weekend and kept picking up the same old ones trying to convince myself that "it would do" but the information just didn't seem to go into depth on the massive (expensive) subject I needed them too. Then came cycle day 1 and I called my doctor only to find out the IVF lab was closing in the next 2 months due to construction at the hospital where it is housed - we got thrown into IVF much quicker than anticipated. We went into the doctors office and got the specs on our individualized plan and the injection lessons but still came out feeling completely overwhelmed. I went back to the bookstore to pick up one of the other books I had been looking at just to calm down a little bit when I found this one. I have found it to be a very good resource if you are getting ready to go through IVF. I felt a lot more informed about the process which helped my anxiety to subside and believe me, going into this more worked up than you have to be is not a good idea :) The authors did a great job explaining the IVF process. The only areas I wish they had gone into more detail is on injectibles and labwork. They do touch on these subjects, I just wish they had gone into even more detail. But overall a very good resouce for IVF. Thank you ladies from a grateful (hopefully successful) IVF patient.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for Newbies/Family
If you're new to the maze of fertility treatments, this is a good resource. It's also helpful to give to family members who have questions about what you are going through, because if you're like me, you'll grow tired of discussing with your parents the mechanics of artifical conception! :) When you first begin treatments, I would recommend reading this resource between doctor's visits so you better understand the treatment plan and options.

2-0 out of 5 stars not worth the money
The main disappointment with this book was the lack of actual meal plans and recipes.Nearly 2/3rds of the book is given over to advice about exercise, emotional health, etc-- good stuff, but also stuff that's covered better in several other well known books. There are really only a few pages given over to how to actually eat. This plan is also based on Atkins principles, and though it is much more flexible and reasonable, it would be quite difficult to follow for vegetarians and veggie friendly options are not provided by the authors. This book is mainly of interest to women with PCOS who need more general lifestyle information. Women with endo and other issues, or people who are looking for more concrete nutritional info, meal plans, etc should look to the Healing Gourmet book on fertility. It has a similar approach (to insulin resistance) but provides concrete suggestions for meal planning.

4-0 out of 5 stars An alternative couples can try at home before/with expensive fertility treatment
The gist of this book is that insulin resistance--a condition that can be pre-diabetic, and a condition that can be MODERATED BY PROPER DIET--impedes fertility. The book describes that problem and proposes a solution.

2-0 out of 5 stars not the best I've read
I read 3 books on this subject, and this was my least favorite out of all three.I found it a bit negative and reading it almost made me more focused on the negative aspects of infertility.The information was good, but not as good and not as easy to navigate as other books I've read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good resource
I purchased this book related to infertility along with a couple of others.I started reading from the beginning (which details the author's experiences) and had to put it down. It was very difficult for me to read about the author's personal experiences because she went through a lot.However, while I was going through my own IVF cycle, this was the book I relied on most.Of all the books I have purchased, this book had the most relevant information (what do E2 levels mean, why progesterone levels are important, etc). After scouring the internet and other books for answers to a question I had, I would find that this book at least addressed my question. It is not a complete reference book (I don't think it was meant to be) and doesn't answer everything in great detail but it came the closest.(Of course, it would be nice if most REs took a little time to explain things to their patients...)

4-0 out of 5 stars good
A great book overcoming the terrible news of infertility. At times like these a man needs all the support he can get and needs to have his spouse and friends near him to help him cope with the news. A great book, structured well, but i found out more information and possible treatment in the book [...], one of the best books on the subject i have ever read ... Read more

Editorial Review

Women having difficulty conceiving or carrying a pregnancy to term will gain much wisdom from this book. Basing her program on the mind-body connection, author Niravi Payne has developed a therapeutic program for connecting with one's inner self to uncover the reasons behind fertility problems. In a nutshell, that means that women who can't conceive may not Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars A lot of theory and little substance
This book tries to establish a relationship between your frame of mind and your ability to conceive.While stress may not help your chances I do not believe that somehow something in your past blocks an egg from being fertilised just like that.No evidence is provided that this happens.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Whole Person Fertility Program
I whole-heartedly recommend this book and its results. In addition to reading this book I went through about two years of therapy with Niravi, which changed my life. I think the readers who interpreted what she is saying with the attitude that if you don't get pregnant by following what she suggests, that it's all in your mind, and it's your fault, have it all wrong. That is exactly the thinking that I was stuck in, and had created as a self-blame mechanism that I carried around with me all of my life. Her goal is not to have you blame yourself, but to look at your life and try to understand how and why you have come to have the beliefs that you do, which may not be your fault at all. They can be very strong family influences, work influences and society influences that keep you and your mind locked in patterns of behavior that affect how your body responds to stress, illness or disease. I believe the mind has a huge affect on your health and how well your body works, and I believe medicine is only just starting to catch on to this idea. That is the basis for Niravi's program. I finally examined how I was really living my life and whether that way was compatible with what I was saying was my goal to have a baby. My life was not compatible with having a baby before I worked with Niravi. I tried for 10 years to get pregnant. I finally forgave myself for all the mistakes and failures, but it took a long time to do. I am now 7 1/2 months pregnant, which I had not expected to happen. I give a lot of credit to Niravi for helping me stop blaming myself and to get on with my life. Hope she can help you too.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone
I purchased this book since I haven't been able to conceive after many years of trying, and it was recommended in "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom". I believe in the mind/body connection but there is an inherent risk in focusing on this: we feel even MORE guilty when we don't conceive since it MUST be in our minds! This book is written in a very positive, supportive tone, however.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful
I didn't realize how much of the stuff that I was going through other people were also.Some of the anger I have been feeling I have been trying to supress because I thought I was the only one feeling that way.It is really nice to know that other women are feeling the same way and all the reactions I've had others have had also.With something as personal as infertility you don't always get the support you need.I'm no closer to being pregnant because of the book, however, I am going to be able to keep my sanity and my marriage.I hope that others read this book and realize that what they are feeling is okay and it is okay to take control over what the doctors are telling you they are going to do with YOUR body.God Bless.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource!
Cara Birrittieri has written an important book for both patients concerned about their fertilty and for health professionals.Knowledge can only enhance the ability of a woman to make the decisions which are appropriate for them. This author has clearly and concisely given us the tools needed to understand the process of conception and the potential problems which could prevent this. As an obstetrician/gynecologist with 25 years of experience treating women with a myriad of problems, I would not hesitate to recommend this book to my patients.
5-0 out of 5 stars A book you must read!
I was 32 after trying to conceive for 1 year when I and my husband sought the help of a Reproductive Endocrinologist. After simple blood work tests were completed we sat across the desk from a top fertility specialist and were told my FSH was elevated and would possible never conceive my own child.I was a 32 year-old healthy, educated, professional women suddenly finding myself lost, and drowning in an ocean of results, terminology, statistical outcomes, andtreatments that has forever changed my life and my hoped for family.Had Cara's book been available at that time in my life I would have founds answers and a plan of action that I was so desperately in need of.Thankfully this book has been written, and written well, by an award-winning journalist who has specialized in health and medicine. The depth of research and the manner in which it was written allows women to learn about their fertility and their choices in a comprehensible way that is needed for the majority of us who are not medically trained.
5-0 out of 5 stars A must read
This book is a must read for all women.Many of us find out too late the significance of that three letter word... FSH.Something so simple as a bloodtest should be offered by OB/GYNs with annual exams.The media fools us to believe that IVF is the answer to our infertility problems.If you are a low responder with diminished ovarian reserve you are first of all going to have to look high and low for a Doctor and Clinic who will even come within ten feet of you.Clinics care about their stats and don't let them tell you otherwise.It is not an easy road and women should be informed about this early on.An elevated FSH does not just impact a woman 35 or above.There are many young women that are faced with this challenge also.I came across Cara's book after that dreaded first FSH test.I learned about what was actually going on with my body, what I could do, and what my options were.I have had a long journey on this path, but am thankful to the author for having taken the time to write her book and educate women of all ages. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best I've come across
I don't pretend to have read *all* the infertility books in existence, but I have read a fair cross-section of them.I like this book the best because it has information I haven't seen elsewhere, and answered a lot of my questions.He quotes a lot of studies and statistics, which I like better than people who just make pronouncements and expect you to believe it just because it's in print.He has actionable suggestions that I hadn't come across before, like doing a count of your follicles (using ultrasound) to give you a gauge of how many years of fertility you have left, so you can make more informed decisions about pursuing treatment.Overall, I would recommend this book for people who want to be very well-informed and full participants in their treatment.If you don't really want to know the nitty-gritty (certainly not everyone does), this book is not for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dr.Silber has done it again
The book like it's previous avatar(edition) is an extremely well written book;useful to the lay people and to the practising physician.Dr. Silber in his usual candid and forthright style has called 'a spade a spade' and denounced wasting time on nonexistent conditions,and unproven therapies.

2-0 out of 5 stars Misleading, unfortunately
It's true that a woman's general health may play a role in her fertility (and certainly in her ability to carry a healthy pregnancy), and that certain medical problems can drastically increase the risk of infertility (untreated polycystic ovary syndrome, STDs).This book might be useful in suggesting some testing that women in their early 30s might do to help them decide how long it might be relatively safe to delay trying to conceive.

2-0 out of 5 stars Outdated information
I made the mistake of purchasing his older book called The A.R.T. of making babies updated edition. Do not buy unless your doing a research paper. This book was written in 1998 and the information is outdated. Make sure you purchase the 2005 edition. I wish amazon.com would have made this clearer. I did read it anyways and had the bookbeen filled with updated information it could be informative. I found the "Couple's guide to In Vitro Fertilization a much better book. Having recently gone through the procedure it was right on the money and very easy to read and understand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good source of information
My husband and I recently found out that IVF was probably our only hope at having a biological child.We live in an area where IVF is basically non-existent... as is the information that we've received.I wanted to find out everything I could about the IVF process, expenses, etc.This book was an excellent source of information from fertility testing, to the entire IVF process.It also went into depth on new procedures that can be used along with IVF.VERY inforamtive, and I would recommend to anyone craving knowledge about IVF.

5-0 out of 5 stars The definitive work on Laboratory Andrology
This is the definitive work on human Laboratory Andrology.Not only does Dr. Mortimer give detailed protocols for performing laboratory testing of male fertility, but he also provides the scientific background for eachtest and clinical significance of the results.In addition, he discussesquality control and laboratory management issues. Each sectionis clearlywritten with straightforward explanations.There are excellentillustrations throughout. As a practicing Andrologist, who directs anAndrology Laboratory, I can not imagine getting by without this reference. I highly recommend this text to anyone who performs semen analysis.Thetext would also be of interest to sperm biologist working with domestic,exotic and research species. ... Read more
