5-0 out of 5 stars Should be Mandatory Reading
I feel this book should be on the "mandatory reading" list for all women - especially young women.Our society and most of our mothers have wholly failed at teaching us about this sacred subject! Whether you are trying to get pregnant, trying to prevent pregnancy, or neither of the above, this is a must read.I would add, that there is a lot of information in this book that men should know too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Read this and got pregnant the first month!
I had no trouble conceiving my first child when I was 35 years old. When we tried for baby #2, however, I was 39 years old and after 6 months of fruitless efforts we were beginning to get frustrated. A friend recommended this book to me. I got the book and began charting my cycle using the methods in the book. BINGO! I got pregnant the very first month I charted. What I learned in the process, was that I was ovulating a full week later than normal, so while my husband and I were diligently trying to conceive in the early part of my cycle, up through the time I thought I would be ovulating, we were stopping our determined efforts a little too early. The month I started charting, we just kept on going (much to my husband's delight: )until the thermometer said we could stop. A couple of weeks later I discovered I was pregnant and now our daughter has a little brother!: )
5-0 out of 5 stars The Bible of Fertility
I bought this book with a bit of hesitancy due to the fact as a medical professional, I thought that I knew all there was to the female body.What I learned in this book challenged everything I thought I knew.When I have a daughter, I will definitely be holding onto this gem to pass along to her...

5-0 out of 5 stars You've got to read this book!
I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great first TTC book to read...
My husband and I are looking to start a family in the next 5-6 months. I just finished reading this book and found it to be very informative, especially for someone who is just taking the first steps at learning how to optimally prepare for trying to conceive.It is written in simplistic language (which could seem overly simplified and repetitive to those who were already familiar with the information but was absolutely perfect for me, who just wanted to soak up all the information I could and fully understand what steps to take to promote pregnancy in the timeframe we are hoping for).I think it is perfect to read about 4-6 months prior to trying or if you have been having difficulty in conceiving, as the author does take a significant amount ot time explaining possible causes and alternatives.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome book--pulls no punches
I really like the way Dr. Williams gives straighforward advice and also doesn't condemn or judge. I feel much more hopeful after reading this book! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Use it for what it is
This book isn't for people who are trying to conceive.For those who are preparing to do it in the future it offers good information on diet and environmental hazards.Use it for what it is and it is useful.If you are trying to conceive this book isn't for you.

1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money
This book was useless. It is a great idea to have a book about conception however this book fails to live up to the lofty task. I think my biggest complaint with the book is the fact that the book is dull and really doesn't go into terffic detail about how life changes after a baby. Or practical step to take before getting pregnant. Instead it focuses to much on diet not enough on the huge emtional changes. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing book!
Randine Lewis has taken all the most valuable information for any woman trying to conceive and condensed it into this extremely comprehensible and succinct book.Offering woman and incredible oppurtunity to heal themselves by understanding in depth how the body works and what they can do to support their fertility journey.I would highly recommend anyone wanting to conceive read this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must have!
After having a miscarriage at 8 weeks, and having waited for that pregnancy to happen for 12 years, I found comfort in researching as much as possible about dealing with the pain of my loss. Finding this book has made me realize why I have had so much trouble getting pregnant to begin with. It is easy to read and has a step by step explanation on how to apply the Ancient Chinese Medicine and methods in your life-style to be successfully pregnant... naturally. I strongly recommend this book to anyone in search for the "infertility cure". ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally what I was trying to find.
This book is awesome. I am just TTC (trying to conceive) and this book really detailed the ups and downs of each month as you ride the roller coaster of your cycle. I also was reassured that if I have to take the next step, seeing a doctor, not all of the options for getting pregnant with help are as scary as I thought.
5-0 out of 5 stars I just finished this book
I just finished this book and wanted to check out what others thought and was surprised that there were people who hated this book so much.First of all, I have to remind these folks that this book is not supposed to be a medical book about infertility.Nothing about this book, from its cover design to the book description indicates that it is a medical reference or how-to book.Granted, I picked this book up at B&N and flipped through it first before purchasing it, that's why I don't feel duped by the contents in this book.I feel this this book is funny, original, interesting, and has plenty of good advice and descriptions of fertility treatment procedures.It's meant to be subjective and lighthearted.And for those of you going through torturous fertility treatments, it's understandable that this book will seem like it's making fun of the situation, but I don't think that that was what the authors intended to do.Anyway, this book is perfect for those that have an open mind, have been trying to conceive for no more than six months, and have a sense of humor.

4-0 out of 5 stars I wanted the truth!
I wouldn't say this book was the most comprehensive on fertility treatments, and it was a bit redundant with it's cute email-style writing, but if you are TTC (Trying to Concieve), you need to read it anyways.I really identified with the authors and felt as though I was reading my own story.It just felt so good to laugh, and to know I'm not the only one having these crazy thoughts and emotions while despirately wanting to get pregnant.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for coping skills
This book was great for coping skills when it comes to the ups and downs of infertility.I learned a lot of techniques to lower my stress level.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful
I didn't realize how much of the stuff that I was going through other people were also.Some of the anger I have been feeling I have been trying to supress because I thought I was the only one feeling that way.It is really nice to know that other women are feeling the same way and all the reactions I've had others have had also.With something as personal as infertility you don't always get the support you need.I'm no closer to being pregnant because of the book, however, I am going to be able to keep my sanity and my marriage.I hope that others read this book and realize that what they are feeling is okay and it is okay to take control over what the doctors are telling you they are going to do with YOUR body.God Bless.

5-0 out of 5 stars I did get pregnant after one month!
I did not follow the diet strictly, but I simplified the diet by buying Amy's brown rice and tofu bowls which had most of the ingredients she recommended. I ate one of these every day for lunch. I also ate yams, yams and more yams.I got them from the local International grocery in St. Louis.I would think it would be hard to implement this diet if you are not in an urban area. I had been trying to get pregnant for a year before I tried this, and when I tried the diet, I got pregnant within a month.I agree that the diet is confusing, and it was impossible for me to follow strictly.But I did do the best I could and it seemed to work.

4-0 out of 5 stars This book just makes sense
The previous reviewer's comments seem very harsh, and I can only guess she was hoping for a quick fix to her own infertility. How can one blame infertility on a good diet? I think the author makes a very solid connection between diet and infertility and her recommendations are good, but of course, one needs to be ready to implement change. If you are not ready to give up meat, of course you may be put off by her advice as the previous reviewer was. Animal proteins (meat) are not the only, and definitely not the best, source for iron, zinc and calcium. Any quick search on the internet will provide you with a list of alternative sources for these minerals...plus most women who are trying to get pregnant should be taking a prenatal vitamin, which will supplemant their mineral needs. But one should always look to food sources first for their vitamins and minerals as they are most easily absorbed by the body. I for one agree that food has a connection to infertility, plus who wouldn't want to "detox" their bodies to ensure they have a health environment for a growing baby.

4-0 out of 5 stars Worth a Try
I bought this book and went on the diet during my second IVF cycle--after 3 years of trying.I got pregnant for the first time in my life...Unfortunately, I miscarried at 11 weeks, but this was due to Down's Syndrome & my doctors have told me it was not related to my infertility problems (endometriosis) at all.

After 5 miscarriages, several rounds of traditional infertility tests and countless shead tears, I had the good fortune to meet Dr Beer via email.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wise Guide to Reproductive Health
Fertility Awareness is more than a reliable, low-tech way to prevent or achieve pregnancy based on changes in body temperature and cervical mucus.It's a wise way for women to become aware of the rhythms of their own bodies and for their partners to share in this awareness.This essential first step will help solve America's epidemic of reproductive problems ranging from painful menstrual cycles to loss of sex drive to infertility. Singer profoundly understands the myriad ways that diet, lifestyle and environment affect reproductive health and provides an excellentdiscussion of the vital role that traditional animal products and healthy fats play in reproductive health and the risks of supposedly healthy low-fat products, soyfoods and other highly processed modern food products.As a Clinical Nutritionist, I have worked with many infertile female clients, many of whom were "health conscious" vegetarians or near vegetarians.Nearly all of these women regained their fertility, strengthened their overall reproductive health and just plain felt better after removing soy foods from their diets and adopting a varied, omnivorous diet rich in both protein and fat.Men also benefit from eliminating soy foods because the plant estrogens lower testosterone levels, diminish the libido and adversely affect both the quality and quantity of sperm.In short, if you value your sexuality and reproductive health, follow ALL the excellent advice in this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars a must-read for every woman
Around the time I began using The Pill, a friend mentioned the fertility awareness method, FAM, to me. I wrote it off as the infamous "rhythm method." A year later, desperate to come off the Pill (not a good experience for me), I decided that FAM might be worth looking into.
5-0 out of 5 stars What a great resource for learning!
I bought this book when I recently attended a class given by Katie Singer on Fertility Awareness.I have been wanting to learn Fertility Awareness/Natural Family Planning for a long time for several reasons: to know more about my body and how exactly my cycles work, to gauge my gynecological health & have a tool for discovering problems, and to adhere to my church's teachings on birth control (I'm Catholic).

5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST book for beginning IVFers!!:)
I wish I would of found this book first!It's an easy read with so much valuable information.It covers everything from IVF lingo to sample cycles AND gives great commentary from women and men who have survived & succeeded with IVF.I couldn't put it down & constantly found myself sharing interesting info from the book with my husband.You won't be disappointed with this one!!!
2-0 out of 5 stars Good Info, But Trite and Patronising
The book is filled with good definitions about the winding road that is IVF-fertility treatment is packed with acronyms, abbreviations, and science, and the author does do a good job of explaining what all of the acronyms and abbreviations are.The book flows well and has wit, but the constant underlying message is one of success!IVF succeeds!Just keep your legs in the air/take to bed rest/keep thinking smiley happy positive thoughts and it always works!As someone who's been through a few rounds of IVF and ongoing still, it's not that easy for most people.IVF is hard enough without infusing constant messages of false hope-I feel the author is irresponsible in suggesting that IVF can be otherwise.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! A Must-Have for IVFers!
I am the kind of person who researches and reads EVERYTHING when they are faced with an issue or problem.Needless to say, I have purchased a multitude of IVF books, and this one is one of my favorites.It goes through the IVF process step-by-step, shares sample protocols, and explains ALL the medicines.In fact, I found myself going back and re-reading several parts of the book while in the midst of the IVF process.It's simply a must-have! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A valuable perspective!
There seems to be some vastly differing opinions on this book and what it actually says.
5-0 out of 5 stars Gave Me Hope
My husband found Inconceivable while searching Amazon.com for a book that might help me deal with the devastation and hopelessness I was feeling after 3 failed in-vetro attempts.When I first started reading it, I was a little bitter because the author already had a child and was just frustrated because she could not seem to get pregnant with a second child.Being desperate for a first child, I wondered how someone who already has a child could possibly help me, but I kept reading, and after a couple chapters, I realized what her real message is....trust your instincts, your eating habits DO matter, and open your mind to actively research alternative options in addition to the conventional.The bottom line is to do what you think is right for you.What an empowering feeling!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Infertility Story

3-0 out of 5 stars depressingly enlightening
I find this book fascinating for many reasons.My wife and I have just decided to have a baby, and I had read excerpts on salon before the book itself.I found myself agreeing with many of the sentiments expressed. In the decision, I found myself trapped by my own selfishness, and found that mirrored in many of the essays.But I thought: what if my parents had been this selfish?What if all they were concerned about was the mess their kids would turn their house into?The loss of free time? To be honest, I was very concerned that I wasn't "cut out" for parenthood - but reading these essays, I came to grips with my selfishness, and realized there's more to life than me.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good only if you want kids
Most of the childfree/childless people in this book claim that they may change their minds or regret not having kids. Only one really stood out and said no I am never having kids (Elinor Burkett) The ones who were on the fence really seemed like they will all have kids one day. And there are no I regret having kids stories from the parents.
2-0 out of 5 stars To have and have not
One of those unique books where professional writers openly discuss their personal decisions on family and children. Interesting take is that they have all made decision and stuck with it in regards to whether or not to have children.Neither one of them seems to regret their decision and is firmly behind it.While some writings are more impressive than others, they all have in common he fact that they are sincere and open. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Cover of book misleading
I bought this book thinking it would be a good read before my husband and I started trying for a baby. The cover captions looked like there would be some great information inside. However, when I got the book and read the table of contents I immediately realized it was a book about infertility. I only give it 1 star not based on the content but on the misleading cover of the book. I'll have to pay better attention next time!

2-0 out of 5 stars choose another book!
I've recently come into the TTC group and have sought out many books to get prepared...this book looked good, said all the right things on the cover but when I got it home, it was very hard to stay interested!It was like a textbook, not a very difficutlt read but difficult to want to keep reading.Now I'm ordering new books because I dislike this one so much.I'm sure if has useful information, but I'd rather read something more "personable".

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Very Good for Those Trying to Conceive...
This book read like a textbook...not very interesting or helpful. In fact, I read through it and was so unimpressed that I returned it the day after I received it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Thank good ness for this book!
This book was a wonderful tool for my husband and I when we were exploring DI as an option.This is the one book that truly addresses our unique infertility situation.None of the other infertility books spend more than a page talking about using donor sperm.This was wonderful!

4-0 out of 5 stars A great book to help with the loss!
I am a DI adoptee and I recommended this book to my mother. She really felt validated by the book. As an DI adoptee I also recommend "Adoption Forum" by Kasey Hamner. It covers DI from all angles. And those touched by DI are represented in many of the other topics. Oh, and remember, always disclose!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Helped me feel less unique
I agree with other reviewers that this book focuses more on the emotional side than the technical. However, I can get all the technical information I need from my doctor. What this book gave me was a sense that there are a LOT of others out there who are doing what I'm doing. It also helped me focus on and deal with all the stress that the process brings with it. I think you can get a lot out of this book even if you are not the hetero couple that is more targeted by the examples. You still have to deal with the issues between you and the child and the donor, no matter what your relationship is, and those chapters were very helpful. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Infertility info alone worth the purchase
Before I had read this book or been introduced to the "Right For Your Type" diet concept, I followed something very close to what D'Adamo advocates for my type.After 5 years of infertility, we conceived our baby daughter.Now that I have read the author's other books, I am not surprised to see that his recommendations can help infertile couples conceive and help those with recurring miscarriage.
1-0 out of 5 stars Contradicts what my nutritionist and doctor advises
The concept of the book is interesting which got me reading in the first place. Although as I hit page 100, I just could not continue. I was to avoid all cheeses that are mostly considered safe for me and baby and that it was OK for me to eat some harmful (unpasteurized) ones. I feel sorry for the pregnant woman and her fetus who follows this ridiculous diet plan and ends up with listeria. There are also some "no no" fish that are listed on the OK list also. But I was absolutely floored when it told me to avoid all meat.. (protein is essential!) This is a crucial time for optimal health so please, just eat healthy and see a doctor or nutritionist who actually knows what they are talking about.

4-0 out of 5 stars Odd but worth it
Reading the other reviews, I can hear where other reviewers are coming from. It's true, this way of eating and exercising does not provide a one-size-fits-all approach, and often can seem odd. Dr. D'Adamo's Blood Type diet & exercise recommendations are explained in much more detail in earlier books. In particular, Live Right 4 Your Type would be a great introduction to the theory and science behind the Blood Type Diet (BTD). I see Eat Right 4 Your Baby (ER4YB) as a resource for folks who already have familiarity with the BTD and have found that it makes sense for them. I do wish that ER4YB included information regarding variations for non-secretors. As someone working towards getting healthy now, in anticipation of pregnancy in a few years, this information is very helpful to me, including in terms for maximizing fertility. I have lost 60 pounds in the last year from following these diet & exercise guidlines, and have seen a tremendous improvement in my energy, allergies, asthma, sinuses, and joint stiffness. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book - get it.
I've read this book.It was an easy and straight-forward read.I liked the information it gave regarding testosterone injections.It would be most helpful if doctors started updating their knowledge on Male Hormone Therapy.Since reading this book and taking the natural supplement "THOR-Plex," I have been so much better off...I plan to buy a few other books on the subject here at Amazon and read up some more on this fascinating subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Dr. Wright...
With conventional medicine so bent on testosterone as the "bad guy", bringing declining hormone levels back to healthy levels makes sense.Women have hormone imbalance from estrogen dominance and lack of progesterone production - are we guys exempt?I especially enjoy Dr. Wright's emphasis on natural testosterone supplementation at normal psysiological levels instead of synthetic testosterone at much higher doses with all the side effects.And he has the studies to back him up.Once one understands that pharmaceutical companies cannot patent natural products, then it makes sense why many doctors are not educated in using natural products when appropiate.Dr. Wright's work is timely, relavent, and a fun read.I highly recommend it to any man over 40.

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting but without specifics
I found this to be an interesting book on a subject all too frequently overlooked or bypassed as unimportant.The book gives anexcellent overview of concepts, but falls short in recommending any sort of program to improve testosterone levels.Excercise, programs to minimize the effect of SBH, blocking testerone to estrogene conversion etc were touched on but no specifics given. ...
