I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this book. It was a quick read and did provide a nice overview of the fertility and reproductive process. Overwhelming, I felt like there needed to be more resources mentioned. One thing that bothered me was the treatment of more natural means of tracking fertility was done without much research or thought. For example, they said that using a basal temp, mucus monitoring, and cervix checks would generally be a waste of time compared to a properly timed blood test to check hormones. Good information BUT a person wouldn't know when that properly timed test should be done without tracking other fertility symbols. Plus, charting is a good way to determine if there is a problem with fertility that can lead a couple to see treatment. So, not a bad read, fast and does provide some insight into reasons fertility may have gone off track but it really needs more references and resources.
