After trying practically all the low dose pills on the market and having horrific cystic acne with Mirena, my OB suggested I try getting off the pill to see if my headaches went away. I didn’t even mention my sexual dysfunction and anxiety out of shame.
So I got off the pill but needed some guidance. I hadn’t had a period in a looooooong time due to the pills. Okay I had periods sometimes but they were more like spotting. But still, I was lacking in knowledge about how to naturally control birth and naturally manage periods. I scoured the interwebs and found this book. Wow. Damn.
I didn’t know how body illiterate I was. This book empowered me as a woman. I now understand my body and feel comfortable with it. Something I never felt before.
When I quit the pill, all my lovely, luscious cervical fluids came flowing back to life-replenishing the desert that my vagina had become on the pill. TCOYF helped me understand these fluids and their purpose. I know use these fluids as indicators for when I need to be very careful about sex. I also better understood what was happening in my body while I was on the pill. Let me tell ya, it ain’t good.
This book also pointed me to Chinese medicine to help with menstrual problems like cramping and other PMS symptoms. Acupuncture literally cured the nightmare cramps I was having while on my period. Not to mention helped clear up my acne.
Also, this book has great sex tips!
This is a long review. If you’ve made it this far, I hope you buy this book. It’s the Bible for women.

I personally am a planner, to-do list maker, habitual calendar logger, type A personality, etc. and I found this book to be a huge dose of relief. For us Type A people.... we don't like the unknown or the we'll wait and see what happens crap. We want to know where we're at, what's wrong, the next steps to fix it, and ultimately the solution. This book give you ALL OF IT in terms of your cycle, ovulation, ovarian cysts, PCOS, endometriosis... EVERYTHING.
I personally take comfort in knowing as long as I track my waking temperatures and cervical fluid with some other everyday observational baselines that I will be able to get pregnant. Also, if we don't get pregnant the book gives some solutions to try and fix everything BEFORE you even head to the doctor for necessary or unnecessary testing because you already know why you're not getting pregnant!!!!
Because I like to control situations and this book has educated me to take control of getting pregnant systematically and coming up with solutions to problems before the one year mark of possible infertility. It takes the suspense out of not getting pregnant after a few months so you don't get stressed out.
I highly recommend it to women even not looking to get pregnant because there is vital information about your body that even I didn't learn going to school as a pharmacist. I have already recommended it to a few friends who have abnormal cycles, are trying to get pregnant with baby #2, and some patients who in passing have asked for OTC ovulation kit recommendations.
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING BOOK!!!

Knowing what's happening to your body and rebuilding that sensitivity is so important nowadays, that it should be taught in popular culture besides in school. I feel like handing out copies of this book to all the women in my life. Doctors need our insight into our own bodies in order to be able to help us.
Taking charge of our fertility is the best self-help women can get!
This book is an absolute MUST READ for any women TTC. At first I was dubious about charting my cycle as it seemed a lot of effort and very anal, but after just one month of charting and having read this book I can honestly say it is so helpful!
We had reached a dead end with our fertility treatment, no one could work out why we weren't conceiving and after one month I have discovered that I ovulate late and have a short luteal phase. Never even knew about short luteal phase before this!!
I promise you will learn so much about your cycle and your body by reading this book and charting your cycles. I use the app that is recommended (OvaGraph) and it's so easy!
I am going to recommend this book to every woman I know!
