I found this book outdated, confusing and condescending. After going off the pill I was looking for a basic book on tracking fertility for when I was ready to become pregnant. What first put me off the book was the section on the pill. Specifically, it was clear to me that the author was promoting her own agenda of 'the natural way or nothing.' The author stated that in her opinion it's 'unthinkable' to harm your body (via the pill) in order to have unlimited access to intercourse. She added that users of the pill are often infertile for months or even years afterward and that pregnancy sooner than 3 to 6 months after stopping the pill often results in miscarriage. This info. is just plain wrong. I plowed through anyway, then I reached whole chapters on how partners can deal with abstinence including such methods as looking into eachothers eyes for minutes on end and then discussing their reactions. All in all, this book reminded me of an outdated, high school health class text book that was written decades ago. Although the section on tracking cervical mucus was helpful, the same info. can be obtained on-line. Not worth buying the book.
