This book gave me my womanhood
Reviewed in the United States on May 2, 2018
I bought this book after stopping the birth control pill. I had been on the pill for 10 years (15-25). I had headaches, sexual dysfunction (vaginal dryness and pain with intercourse), and wicked anxiety. I internalized all these ailments as part of me. Little did I know that the pill was causing all my problems.
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.
