Book Description

The Garden of Fertility is a guide to using fertility awareness-that is, reading fertility signals in order to prevent or achieve pregnancy. Certified fertility educator Katie Singer explains how to observe and chart fertility cycles to determine when a woman is most fertile to increase chances of conception, or to exercise birth control naturally-a method that, when followed precisely, is as effective as the Pill. Unlike other books on fertility awareness, The Garden of Fertility also describes how to use the charts to gauge gynecological health and offers nonmedical options for strengthening reproductive wellness. This book provides all the information women never learned in sex education class, but should have. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars *THE* OB/GYN Book for your pocket...
You can tell the medical students at your local teaching hospital. They're the ones with the short lab coats and the pockets bulging with small paper-back books.

For those who are in training to become a Doctor a premium is placed on easily-accessible, highly accurate and important information. I remember going through my clinical rotations and thinking that I needed a "pocket" book for every medical rotation to supplement my massive 20-pound, $100 texts while I was on the wards and in the clinic.

Early into my OB/GYN Residency I got the hot scoop - THIS is the book to keep in your lab-coat if you're practicing OB/GYN. By the time I was a chief resident this book had saved me time and heartache and saved my patients from my blunders over and over. Like all "pocket" texts, this one doesn't contain lengthy discussions. But it DOES contain what you need to get through that night on OB/GYN call. And the next one.... and the next.

The treatment for Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (and hundreds of other common clinical situations)- before it's burned into your brain it's right here at your fingertips. It even gives you concise "go-by's" for how to dictate your operative reports for the most common OB/GYN surgeries.

Since I got my first one a decade ago I've never NOT had a copy of this in my lab coat. I use it infrequently now, but when young trainees seem to need a push towards a clue - I push them towards this little gem.

5-0 out of 5 stars The PERFECT handbook for ANYONE in OB/GYN
This handbook survival guide is a FAST, accurate, useful way to reference any topic in Ob/GYN & Infertility.
As a medical student, this book has allowed me to shine many times over while on my OB/GYN rotation. All students and beyond should own this book. In fact, I feel extremely confident taking my national OB/GYN exam after studying and learning this book. EVERYTHING you need to know is broken down in an easy to read, organized, precise manner containing the most relevant needed information on a topic. Residents and attendings have been amazed at my depth of knowledge since I've read this book. What more could you ask for...

5-0 out of 5 stars OB/GYN Must Have
This book is a must have for any clinician working with Obstetrics and Gynocology. This pocket sized reference covers critical topics and provides immediate answers to questions of issues that arise for anyone working with female patients. The book has easy to read algorithms and charts, information on all aspects of Gyn practice, including uro-gynocology and oncologic staging.

5-0 out of 5 stars Obstetrics Gynecology & Infertility Review
This book continues to be a must have for everybody interested in or practicing Ob/Gyn. It is certainly the most convenient pocket reference anyone can expect to have.

This revision is definitely worth the investment, with updated information in all the disciplines within the field. New additions include the B-Lynch suture, expanded cancer staging and treatment algorhythms as well as expanded information on HRT. I highly reccomend picking up the 5th edition to add to your pocket!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Every page is a must-know.
I bought this 5th edition on Amazon.com and it is worth DHL freight.
It has many great tables, flowcharts, and very good pictures and.. it's really current!.
Now it is a handy but great companion to my OBGY rotation. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Ok, but a tad melodramatic
This was the first pregnancy book I read. Frankly, I found it a bit scary. The authors clearly had a very hard time with conception and with their small-town North Carolina doctors. That seems to have made them a tad fanatical about moms-to-be doing *everything* "right" or they'll never have a child. And I'm not sure the authros' (expectation and) experience of homophobia is particularly informative for those of us in more progressive settings. I very much appreciate the info. I got from the book; now I just have to try not to worry. ... Read more

Book Description

In Contraception and Abortion from the Ancient World to the Renaissance, John Riddle showed, through extraordinary scholarly sleuthing, that women from ancient Egyptian times to the fifteenth century had relied on an extensive pharmacopoeia of herbal abortifacients and contraceptives to regulate fertility. In Eve's Herbs, Riddle explores a new question: If women once had access to effective means of birth control, why was this knowledge lost to them in modern times? ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars It's good, but not...
If you are looking for do-it-yourself abortion information like I was, this is not a good book for that. It is a history book. It's good, but not an abortionary (abortion dictionary).

5-0 out of 5 stars A work of history which also excels as an herbal
As a person who enjoys the study of social history (how people lived) and herbal medicine, this book exceeded my expectations on both counts.

Riddle is an historian, so the scholarship in the book is historical scholarship. He moves deftly between conflicting theories of demographics and actual family sizes, at home with his contemporaries and able to argue his somewhat novel opinion on a level playing field. Not surprisingly, historians tend to go along with modern medical thought that there were no effective systems of personal or professional health care prior to our own allopathic tradition in the past few centuries. Herbalists, homeopaths and the like are still fighting for legitimacy against exactly this mindset.

What surprised and delighted me was the thoroughness of Riddle's information on the herbs in question. It must be noted that he does NOT provide recipes for readers to use at home. He isn't playing (herbal) doctor. Regardless, a person with some experience in herbalism or access to alternate texts can easily take the list of herbs from this book and find appropriate dosage and other how to information from that other source--including the important caveat that herbs are not always safe and shouldn't be taken without professional advice or lots of research. Riddle's emphasis is on pointing out which plants have been indicated, by whom in the ancient world, and what science has (or has not) done to test for actual efficacy.

One interesting side note for readers who allow for the possible effectiveness of today's most revolutionary complementary medicine modalities is Riddle's reporting of the fact that, historically, chants (magic) were often listed together with the herbs (medicine) in any given herbal recipe. Riddle is careful and respectful of the potential for narrow-mindedness when he admits that, to our Western minds, there can be no believing in the usefulness of the magic side of the equation, but he makes no disparaging remarks and he allows for future scientific work to prove said "magic" effective. Of course, to a modern practitioner of Reiki or any other mental/spiritual healing system, it is certainly possible to suppose the intent of the healer and/or patient was a necessary or beneficent part of the ancient cures.

I expected to enjoy this book's subject matter, but I was actually delighted by how well Mr. Riddle covered both aspects of the topic, and even more so by the easy readability of his style. Any person who enjoys reading well-written history for pleasure will find this a work worth spending some time with.

5-0 out of 5 stars awesome
The best book out there thus far on herbal contraception and abortion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brave scholarship upon the "secret knowledge" of women.
An outstanding work of scholarship. Riddle has gathered buried historical evidence of reproductive control through the ages. A must read for those who feel that we live in the most "enlightened" age, in regards to reproduction. Riddle will prove you wrong. Women have been in control of their reproduction for centuries. Readily available herbs have been more effective than "modern science" throughout society. ... Read more

Book Description

An estimated 10 million American women have PCOS-polycystic ovary syndrome. Most of these women have never heard of the hormonal disorder, but are often painfully aware of its symptoms: irregular menstrual cycles, excess facial and body hair, weight gain, and adult acne. PCOS is also the leading cause of infertility. If left untreated, the condition carries long-term risks for endometrial cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and stroke. This book sheds light on this under-reported, under-diagnosed endocrine disorder. Topics covered include: Causes of PCOS, Overcoming the symptoms, Choosing a physician, Getting a diagnosis, Receiving the best medical treatment, Infertility and getting pregnant, and Coping with the emotional impact of PCOS. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Intro to PCOS
This was an easy read with good background info on PCOS. If you've already done alot of research, you won't find anything new here, but it is an extremely helpful book for the newly diagnosed or those who want general info regarding PCOS. Does have good info about PCOSA (support association).

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for someone new to PCOS
I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and am glad I ordered this book. I'm sure it's not as indepth as others, but it is a great book to start off with if you are new to PCOS. It is very easy to read and easy to understand. It really helps you understand the symptoms of PCOS and the different ways they can be treated. After reading this book, I don't feel so overwhelmed with my condition and I feel like I am ready to move on to a more indepth book.

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY easy to comprehend!!
I've recently been diagnosed with PCOS and I purchased every book I could find on the subject. This book, by far, was the easiest to comprehend. It puts things into laymans terms without all the techinal mumbo-jumbo. Not only does it cover the symptoms of PCOS, but it also explains WHY things happen the way they do. Above all else, it goes through the different options PCOS suffers have in fighting the disorder, and lists the pros and cons of each. This is certainly a book I would recommend for anyone diagnosed with PCOS or their family members to help them understand more about what is going on with your body.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good for newly diagnosed women
I really like this book, it is very easy to read and eventhough it isn't very long it tells you almost everything you need to know about PCOS. I bought this book along with "What to do when the doctor says it's PCOS" and the "PCOS diet book" and I feel like I know a lot more about my desease than I did before, it's a must have for women with PCOS.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great place to start!
Best-Boss knows has done a good job of outlining the basics of PCOS. It is an easy read and a great introduction to living with PCOS. So often women tell me that their doctors give them a diagnosis and send them on their way without any answers. This book should be required reading for all endocrinologists and GYNs. Perhaps then they would understand that PCOS is a complicated syndrome that is so much more than what we weigh or whether we can get pregnant on demand. Best-Boss offers a soothing explanation that can help diffuse the panic so many women feel when they first learn that they have PCOS. Read this book, then send a copy to your doctor! ... Read more

Book Description

With the changing climate surrounding infertility services, we may soon find that infertility counseling is mandated by law or recommended by practice guidelines. Therefore, clinicians urgently need a comprehensive reference on infertility counseling. This softcover edition of Burns and Covington's comprehensive handbook was developed especially for physicians and mental health professionals. It represents a new kind of clinical textbook, necessitated by today's rapidly advancing reproductive technologies and by the complexity of issues facing infertile couples. The book contains nine multi-chapter sections that cover the psychological and medical aspects of infertility, assessment, treatment, counseling, third-party reproduction, alternative family building, post-infertility counseling, and the professional practice of infertility counseling. The editors and contributors all have extensive clinical, research, and educational experience in reproductive medicine and the psychological aspects of infertility. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't refer to a specialist? Use this book!
When managed care makes it impossible to refer a client to someone who specializes in infertility, here is the book that will make you feel confident about your work. And when you don't have time to read a whole book at once, here is the book that allows you to choose the chapters you need when you need them. The impressive array of interdisciplinary experts follow the same format in each chapter, making cross-references for the reader very easy. This book is truly comprehensive, including topics such as "Special Populations" and "Adoption after Infertility", along with the practical guidelines we all want but which are often lost amidst theory and statistics in other books. The appendices and resource section are especially impressive. There are questionnaires, guidelines, consent forms, and a record-keeping form. The resources section has over 20 pages ofdouble-column entries. The authors have organized a stunning amount of information in a way that is useful to clinicians new to infertility issues and to those with experience who want to learn more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful if you are coming off the pill...
I bought the book for natural birth control. This book (Clubb & Knight's Fertility) is worth the price for its chapter on charting and birth control when you are coming off the birth contol pill; it is the most complete information on this specific topic that I've found. If you are looking for fertility awareness method for birth control, a much more complete book is Toni Wescheler's Taking Charge of Your Fertility. Buy both books and you're all set.

I feel that this book was a very informative, and easy to follow. It answered all of my questions and then some. It was a great reference guide for me later when I actually need to use the methods referenced in the book. I think the information in this book is something every couple should know.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent illustrations and clarity
A well written, nicely illustrated, quite comprehensive book on the female genital tract pathology.

The main plus are the clear illustrations all of which are in colour so it serves as an atlas as well as a textbook (versus the black and white photos of the Blaustein, which in my opinion is a better text).

This is quite recent and so up to date (this ed. was published late 2001/2002). ... Read more

People struggling with decisions about assisted fertility finally have a road map in Arthur Wisot and David Meldrum's informational and compassionate book, Conceptions and Misconceptions: A Guide Through the Maze of In Vitro Fertilization and other Assisted Reproduction Techniques. Wisot and Meldrum give readers the right questions to ask and the means to interpret the answers. The compassionate tone may have been gained through personal experience (coauthor Wisot and his wife Claudia have quadruplets, achieved through ovulation-inducing drug therapy in the early '70s) as well as the two doctors' years of successfully helping infertile couples have babies.

Conceptions and Misconceptions includes a detailed review of the reproductive cycle of both female and male, discussion of the causes of infertility, and an explanation of reproductive testing, treatments, and techniques. It also discusses the high risks associated with both in vitro pregnancy and multiple births, and addresses the future of assisted reproduction. This book is not light reading, yet it's exactly what the doctor ordered for those with questions about assisted reproduction. Rarely is hard-core science successfully explained in a clear, friendly, informational tone. It's been done in Conceptions and Misconceptions. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resourse
This book provided me with lots of information and left me loaded with questions for my Reproductive Endocrinologist! It was an excellent resource and I highly recommend it for anyone who is considering or about to undergo any ART procedure.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best IVF book available
This is the book that became my bible as I went into advanced infertility treatments. I finally found the information that I was looking for on what it was truly like to go through a cycle of IVF. I copied the diary that is in the book and mailed it to my family so they also knew what to expect. This was the book where I found all the information that I was searching for to help me know what to expect and to help me make the decision to undergo IVF.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
If you buy one book on IVF, buy this one. After studying the web for months and undergoing treatment for a year at a fertility treatment center, we bought this book. We thought we had seen everything. This was the first publication I had seen that suggested that assisted hatching + ICSI could give older couples the same chance of conceiving as younger couples with no assistance. Also, the daily calendar for the first IVF cycle is invaluable. We knew just what to expect. This is a very optimistic book, and you will probably need that to survive IVF. The one criticism is that the success tables in this book are drastically out of date.

4-0 out of 5 stars Informative book on infertlity and the rollercoaster ride
This book helped get me through the 1st IVf treatment. I wish it could have told me more about the Natural IVf cycle. I am starting it tomorrow. I have 13 embryos frozen and am ready to try again. I needed the book everyday to help prepare me for the next.
