5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic! Aug. 4 2009
Format:Paperback
I went through and read some of the bad reviews this book got before adding my own, and I can't agree with any of them! Some say that it's only written for people who are really fertile, and not for people struggling with infertility....I disagree! I've been trying for a year now to get pregnant, I've been charting for about four months of that, and I've read all kinds of information online about infertility, but I was still amazed at the amount of information I didn't have. No, she can't tell you what's wrong with you, but she teaches you how to chart and be aware of what's going on with your body so that when you DO go in to see a fertility specialist you can speak intelligently with them rather than going in without a clue.
There were other reviews that made it sound like all the information she gave was basic, and only good for people who have the 28-day cycle. Wrong again! She emphasizes time and again that no two women are alike, everyone's cycle is different, even sometimes from month to month, but she teaches you how to properly chart it so that you can figure out what's going on. Maybe a stressful situation delayed your ovulation one month, or maybe you're not ovulating at all, but you can learn to figure these things out for yourself by charting.
One other review talked about it being full of "feminist rhetoric". I don't even know what she's talking about! I'm very conservative myself, and pretty old-fashioned in my viewpoints, but all Ms. Weschler talks about is taking charge of your own body and knowing how it works. It was amazing to me to read and realize how much I didn't know. I even went to my family doctor to tell him I was having trouble concieving and when I tried showing him my fertility charts all he said was, "Wow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Also helpful for perimenopausal or POF women March 5 2008
Format:Paperback
I have premature ovarian failure (POF) and I have found the FAM method extremely helpful in predicting periods (I get a few days notice), and ovulation even though I have very irregular or infrequent periods. If my period is several weeks late, I can tell if i am actually pregnant or if its just my POF. I save a ton of money on pee tests because the other physical symptoms are so reliable in telling me why my period is late: I dont have to worry about the possibility of being pregnant everytime my period is over 28 days (which happens most of the time). The chart tells me exactly whats going on. Its a bit of work, but well worth it I think for women having infertility problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jan. 27 2010
Format:Paperback
I bought this book when I was approaching marriage and seeking a natural method of birth control. 11 cycles later, it is working perfectly, I know my body, LOVE the fact that I know what is going on inside me, love the fact that when we want children, I'll know exactly how to time it, would recommend it to EVERYONE who asks me, and have bought it for others I know who are approaching marriage.
Toni explains SO much of the woman's body, and I learned a ton from this book that I, a woman, had never known about myself before!
I cannot say enough in praise of this book. GET IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars An education in My Biology Sept. 11 2009
Format:Paperback
I know not all womens bodies are the same and thanks to this book I was able to understand MY biology so much better. My husband and I had just started trying to have a baby and I was already feeling frustrated about how little control I had on the whole concept of conception. I had no idea about ovulation timing, even some basics I thought I knew were wrong. A friend had recommended this book and I bought it within the week. I started charting as I was reading the book and before the month was done I was pregnant. Now like I said not all women are the same but I do feel this book enlightened me to know that. The book discusses many problems women have with getting pregnant and I felt that if I hadn't have gotten pregnant the tools of charting would have helped me and my GP find out the problem and possibly treating it. I got an education that I will never forget and intend on recommending this book to as many women as I possibly can.

I would recommend this for every woman, married, single, trying to conceive, trying to avoid pregnancy and any woman that just wants to know how her body works.

The author is funny, informative, and educated on her topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for all women June 14 2013
By Anne.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
How did I live without this book for so long? I'm using it as birth control right now as a married woman but I could have used it in my younger days for information and less stress. I now know when I'm fertile, when I'm not and when to expect my peirod. Stress free life!
