Fantastic book and a quick read, written in a way that’s easy to understand. As the author quotes many of her patients as saying, I wish I’d known this information when I was a teen!

I was very impressed by this guide. You many need to wait 2-3 weeks for your order to be delivered, but this resource is worth the cost and the wait.
The book starts off explaining the basic anatomy of a women, exposing the reader to a variety of terms/conditions ranging from hormones (like FSH) to medical conditions (like PCOS), and reviews what a ‘healthy’ cycle is. From there, it discusses a man’s fertility, anatomy, and role in a healthy relationship. The risks/side effects of birth control are also discussed. However, the book doesn’t stop there! The guide than transitions into practical self care, pregnancy, abortion reversal, child birth, and breastfeeding. There are tips on planning doctor visits and monitoring your cycles, as well as the stories of several women using this knowledge. This guide is a MUST for parents of any age.

I am a woman in my mid-twenties, and I found this book to be incredibly insightful. For many years I have struggled to understand my menstrual cycle and manage cramps, PMS, etc. This book has helped me understand that my cycle is an inherent good that I can learn to understand it better in order to manage symptoms through diet, exercise, and supplements. I also loved learning about different phases of my cycle, and growing in understanding of what my hormones are doing during the different phases. This has helped me understand why I feel so energized during certain phases of my cycle, and why I feel more tired and less social at other times. Understanding this information has helped lessen the shame I sometimes feel surrounding my negative emotions and feelings of tiredness leading up to my period. I would recommend this to any woman who is looking to better understand and appreciate her body.

This was my first time encountering something written about periods that didn’t over clinicalize it (like in my physiology class or the mandatory health class in high school) or make it sound like it was evil or an attack on my person (I’ve heard descriptions and nicknames ranging from “Shark Week” to “The Red Tide” or “The Curse” from other women artists online). I was never told that a woman’s menstrual cycle was beautiful and natural. The first book that I ever heard that from was this book. I wish I heard that from the women in my life or even one of my doctors since I matured into puberty (now over 16 years ago). I highly recommend it to parents of girls, girls, and women of all ages. I learned a lot from the book and have been paying more attention to my health and nutrition since reading it. I’m glad to learn that I’m normal!
