Format: Paperback
There is some good info here, no doubt. Especially the information about IVF/GIFT. However, I wound up feeling more scared than anything else. The author presents a myriad of possible things that could currently be wrong or could go wrong. He suggests that the radiation from a TV set could render one infertile. That seems a bit over the top to me. He also suggests writing the company that makes your computer monitor to see how much radiation it emits. There are also a bunch of other bizarre suggestions that seem more hurtful than helpful. I would avoid this unless you feel you are up for hearing a lot of cautionary messages about why you may not be able to conceive. I read this and thought, "It's a wonder ANYONE gets pregnant!" If you are looking for a more empowering pregnancy book I would suggest "Taking Charge of Your Fertility."

Don't know if I would trust this guy's advice after reading the New York Magazine article about him. I found the book very disjointed, and some of the suggestions are just ridiculous.

I thought I was being overly sensitive until I read that another reader was not overjoyed with the tone of this book. At least I am not alone.

Format: Paperback
As a long time infertility sufferer, I found the first edition a sorry excuse of a book for such a serious subject. The outlandish aspects of the book and the total tone was so upsetting to me that I had wasted my money, and should have invested it in an author that would have taken the subject seriously, and given me the information I needed. Still reading everything I can get my hands on, I decided to give the new edition a try. The book was much larger, figured they got their act together, I went ahead and bought it. I was even more disappointed this time around. Infertility is a disease, and I have never seen any other book written on a disease take such little responsibility to the frame of mind of the reader that is the sufferer of the disease. I, for one, do not appreciate the "cutesy" little titles spewed throughout the book. I am not reading this book for entertainment. I am reading it for information. I don't appreciate a claim that almost everyone can become pregnant when I and so many hundreds of thousands of people are walking around childless. Any educated reader will be offended by this book. There are so many excellent books on the subject, and are being released all the time. Just check the list of other authors customers have bought books from. Please, do not update this book in another 8 years. Dr. Lauersen's previous books were excellent. I own several of them, and many of my friends say they live by his pregnancy books (I have not been so lucky). Pass this one by, and check out the list of related books.

This book is an excellent read for anyone trying to get pregnant. It discusses everything from food to eat and avoid, causes for infertility, fertility options and how to track your cycles (and more!). The easy to understand diagrams that are used are excellent as well. This book covers it all.

Everything you would want to know about your fertility. The chapters are detailed and gave me the kind of information to target my most fertile time.

This book is so helpful and very easy to read with short snippets into the workings on women's bodies. It tells you what to do and what not to do and even follows through eating and exercise to increase your fertility. I refer to it often...and I recommend this to all my friends.

By Carol C. on May 25 2003
Format: Paperback
This book goes into excruciating detail about fertility and all factors that may enhance or detract from fertility. You'll learn more about the female and male reproductive systems from this book than you'll learn from any biology course. The authors discuss in detail all types of things that can threaten fertility (endometriosis, PID, fibroid tumors, ovarian cysts, abortions, IUDs, ectopic pregnancies) and discusses how to avoid them. They also cover workplace threats to fertility, STDs, how your OB can help protect your fertility -- After discussing fertility issues, the authors move to how to conceive, discussing sex, body fat & dieting, fitness, stress, diet, and other preparations. The book even boasts of a "revolutionary fertility diet." Finally, the authors discuss the many ways that science can help you conceive -- fertility surgeries, treatments for male infertility, drugs, artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, and donor egg and embryo transplant. I found this book to be like a textbook of sorts -- comprehensive & full of "evidence" and "facts." Frankly, I think there is way too much information in the book to be useful as a general guide; rather it would be more useful as a reference book for how to deal with specific issues. Nonetheless, given the pain associated with fertility issues, it's all worth a try.
