Editorial Reviews

Review

“This beautifully written guide to a woman’s fertility signs is packed with knowledge, wisdom and humor―a must for the bookshelf.” -- Co-authors of The New Our Bodies, Ourselves

“Taking Charge of Your Fertility has become the Our Bodies, Ourselves for our time. Alternately silly, whimsical, and exhaustingly specific, the book was published fifteen years ago and is ranked higher by customers on Amazon than all other books except the third and fourth Harry Potters.” -- New York magazine

“Taking Charge of Your Fertility is a fantastic book, loaded with practical and beautifully presented information that will transform and empower every woman’s relationship with her fertility. I recommend it to women of all ages.” -- Christiane Northrup, M.D., Author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause --This text refers to the paperback edition.

This new edition for the twentieth anniversary of the groundbreaking national bestseller provides all the information you need to monitor your menstrual cycle—along with updated information on the latest reproductive technologies

Are you unhappy with your current method of birth control? Or demoralized by your quest to have a baby? Do you experience confusing signs and symptoms at various times in your cycle? This invaluable resource provides the answers to your questions while giving you amazing insights into your body.

Taking Charge of Your Fertility has helped literally hundreds of thousands of women avoid pregnancy naturally, maximize their chances of getting pregnant, or simply gain better control of their gynecological and sexual health. Toni Weschler thoroughly explains the empowering Fertility Awareness Method (FAM), which in only a couple of minutes a day allows you to:

  • Maximize your chances of conception before you see a doctor or resort to invasive high-tech options
  • Expedite your fertility treatment by quickly identifying impediments to pregnancy achievement
  • Gain control and a true understanding of your gynecological and sexual health

This new edition includes:

  • A fully revised and intuitive charting system
  • A selection of personalized master charts for birth control, pregnancy achievement, breastfeeding, and menopause
  • An expanded sixteen-page color insert that reflects the book’s most important concepts

2.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't look past the sexism & negativity of patients, docs & men
By Ashley on January 13, 2020
I gave this book 2 stars because it does have good information in many areas of reproductive health, however I found that it was written in an extremely sarcastic & negative tone that made the book difficult to read & very frustrating at times. She often negatively comments on past patients, doctors & men in general on being uninformed & ignorant. I found the book very sexist against men while she tries to push her own agendas for reproductive politics, which is just unnecessary in a health book. There is even a blurb from a past patient who forced her husband to have sex with her bc she was ovulating even though he was half unconscious and in a lot of pain from surgery... could this not be considered rape, especially if the gender roles were reversed? I also felt (like other reviewers) that her ONLY acceptable form of birth control is charting & she gives MANY negative reasons why all other forms are not good enough. Yes, synthetic hormones are not ideal but this view is unreasonable and not realistic in our world. An everyday reader trying to better themselves & become educated on their health could get very frustrated with the constant put down of all standard medical options from a typical doctor. There are many ways to be in charge of your reproductive health, not just one.
