    3-0 out of 5 stars In defense of victimhood...
    I straddle the fence between faith in allopathic (Western) medicine and a more wholistic approach. So I bought this book eagerly. I have been both intrigued and disappointed.

    I appreciate the hard scientific information: how our bodies work, how various procedures and substances affect them, the latest developments in health care. I also appreciated reading that things that I have long considered normal, like pregnancy, are indeed natural processes and not diseases or disabilities. But I didn't appreciate hearing that most medical problems are rooted in dysfunctional emotional states. While I think that there are some conditions that are amenable to a psychotherapeutic approach, I KNOW that the hideous cramps I suffered all through my young girlhood, from age 11 to about 27, were a lot more than merely a function of my ambivalence toward my burgeoning womanhood. And while this isn't my problem, the idea that an enlightened female doctor would tell an infertile woman that her infertility is caused by her own psychological state vis a vis parenthood is absolutely horrifying. As is the idea that grapefruit-sized ovarian cysts can be reduced by changing the way we regard ourselves in a patriarchal society. And the idea that most of our plumbing problems are rooted in our victimhood reverses all the gains in strength and self-confidence we've made in the past 30 years. And the less said about her friend the "medical intuitive," the better!

    I recommend this book only to women who are grounded, strong in their sense of self as non-victims, and well-versed enough in medical knowledge to winnow through the junk and glean the good medical information. For the rest, I think it could be quite damaging.

    5-0 out of 5 stars at last, a book focused on all aspects of women's health
    what a brilliant, sensitive, informed, and thoughtful way to approach health issues particular to women. (Dartmouth Medical School-educated, if I recall correctly) Dr. Northrup truly combines the "Western" with the more "Eastern" approach to health, and she does it in a very balanced way.

    this book covers quite a bit of ground: from the special relationship between the menstrual cycle and the lunar cycle to birth/miscarriage to menopause. it is not a book advocating one way or another, but rather explores and considers how a woman's health is affected by many things, both from within and without the body. she also talks about many things a woman can do to improve her health, in accessible and realistic terms.

    I found especially useful the chapter on birth stories. Her discussion of labor and delivery allowed me to understand birthing on a deeper level, beyond the "pain," and provided me with more confidence and trust in my body and in the process of giving birth (which I was able to do without any medication). I loved the "wave" metaphor, that each contraction can be experienced as a wave that one dives under (mentally) to avoid being thrashed around.

    lastly, this is one of a very few number of books that celebrates women and womanhood. just the title itself tells you so much. i think every woman would do well to have it on her shelf or next to her bed to consult from time to time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A book for every woman
    I got this book as a gift 2 years ago and it has been an amazing discovery of so many things about me!
    This book speaks to me as I am sure it will for every woman.
    A must have!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
    This book will teach you to think of your health and your whole self in a new way. Revolutionary.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Double Edged Sword
    This is the first major book to look at women's health systematically from a holistic perspective. My sister, an ND, gave this to me many years ago. I have referred to it many times since I first read it and my friends always want to borrow it. It's a great reference.

    If you are looking purely for an objective scientific book on women's health then don't bother with this. There is a lot of scientific info but there's a lot of "non-science" as well. Read the lowest reviews first which fairly summarise the weaknesses of this text. I agree that this book comes across as flaky in places however it is a breakthrough work in terms of systematically exploring the integration of mind and body and the effect of this balance on health.

    While I applaud the effort to make people realise how their mental state can impact their health, the other side of that sword is that women feel they are to blame for having the "wrong state of mind" which leads to poor health.

    For instance in one story a woman became infertile because, in the author's opinion, she didn't feel her husband was the right person to have children with. If you're pragmatic you can hear this story, consider if it applies to you and discard it if it doesn't fit. But some women could develop a guilt complex over something that is upsetting on its own without the added blame.

    Ultimately, the problem with this kind of thinking is that it leads to a vicious worry cycle: you worry that you might not have the right state of mind for good health... and then you worry that your worrying risks your health further! But to ignore this altogether also poses risk. Stress does cause disease and an integrated approach to health cannot exist without considering a person's state of mind.

    Because this book provides significant medical information, the reader could be lead into taking all the author's opinions as fact. Take the opinions as just that and you will find the book enjoyable. It is informative and thought provoking. ... Read more

    The Groundbreaking Guide Every Woman Needs

    With The V Book, women will learn everything they need to know about the basics of vulvovaginal--or "V"--health, an essential yet often overlooked area of women's health. Dr. Elizabeth G. Stewart, the nation's foremost expert in vulvovaginal care and sexual-pain disorders, answers the questions about the all too common "V" ailments that women are embarrassed to discuss even with their doctors.

    Drawing upon the latest medical research and two decades of experience treating thousands of women in her specialized gynecological practice, Dr. Stewart has compiled a wealth of information and advice. This comprehensive and authoritative guide for women of all ages includes:

    * How your vulvovaginal concerns change throughout the life cycle, from your teens through menopause and beyond
    * How to pick a good gynecologist, and how to ask the right questions
    * Dos and don'ts of V hygiene--and why sometimes less is better
    * The safest use of tampons, pads, and pantiliners
    * How to handle common symptoms, such as redness, itching, dryness, and discharge
    * Which medical tests you should insist upon from your doctor
    * Tips for safe and pleasurable sex, and what to do when sexual intercourse is painful
    * The latest research on vulvodynia, the vaginal pain syndrome that won't go away
    * Diagnosing and treating yeast infections, allergies, and other ailments
    * What to do if your doctor detects cancer or precancer cells

    And much, much more...

    "What a fabulous book! Every woman needs to know the clear and empowering information in The V Book." --Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

    5-0 out of 5 stars an owner's manual
    As a nurse practitioner who specializes in women's health, I was very excited to see this book. So many problems that I see in my daily practice are addressed in this book, along with very practical suggestions for preventing them. It should be required reading for every woman in her twenties to learn what to and not to do in terms of routine maintenance of her "private parts". This book also addresses common and uncommon concerns for women of all ages and stages of life. I have in the past referred patients to Dr. Stewart's office for women whose problems have baffled the best minds in my group, and have been impressed with the evaluation, management and followup of these individuals, and have been impressed with the care that they have received from Dr. Stewart and her colleagues. I now keep a copy of this book on my desk and recommend it to most of my patients!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for women and OB/GYN clinicians
    I am a nurse practitioner in Obstetrics and Gynecology and was thrilled to read "The V Book" by Elizabeth Stewart. This book is nothing sort of a gem, and provides in an easy-to-read format all the details of "everything you ever wanted to know about 'down there' but were afraid to ask." The information has been impeccably researched and is presented in a very balanced format. The drawings of female anatomy are beautiful and realistic and make it easy for women to identify areas of the vagina and vulva.

    I have practiced in the Boston area and know many women who have been referred to Dr. Stewart's clinic. They have been extremely pleased with their care, and in many cases have had long-standing and difficult problems resolved. I am grateful that Dr. Stewart's wisdom and experience are now available both to women and to the clinicians who provide them with their gynecologic care.

    It is clear that Dr. Stewart is deeply committed to helping women obtain quality health care. If you are a woman experiencing a GYN health issue, this book will provide you with the facts you need to understand the nature of your problem, to ask good questions of your health care provider, and to determine if the care you are receiving is effective and appropriate. Every conceivable topic regarding a women's gynecologic health is covered in a thorough manner, and it is done so with both accuracy and sensitivity.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What your doctor/school/mother didn't tell you about YOU
    Ladies, this book is excellent reading for every one of us. Written by a doctor who is not only a gynecologist but also that rare breed, the vulvovaginal specialist, it is -- as another reviewer suggested -- the owner's manual for everyone with a vulva, vestibule, and vagina. If you're not sure exactly what I mean by those last three terms, you need to find out, and Dr. Elizabeth Stewart -- the author of this book -- is the one to tell you.

    Not only does Dr. Stewart cover what we've got, why we shouldn't be ashamed of it, and how it works, she gives in-depth, readable information on vulvovaginal infections, imbalances, and other problems, tells you how they can be treated, and enumerates interactions and complications for women with special needs (i.e. they're pregnant, HIV positive, etc.) She separates myths from facts and has the data and experience to prove what she says. She also goes over the ideal visit to your GYN, and lets you know what questions you should ask, what tests you should request when, and how to choose the best clinician to meet your needs.

    All in all, this book is not only excellent but ESSENTIAL to a woman's library. It's light, clear reading, and it may be the most empowering book you read all year.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Share it with your mom your lover your friends your daughter
    This is a wonderful book. It is good kept as a reference guide, and can help a woman find a starting point of where to talk to her doctor as well as her partner.
    The V book delves into information that medical guides only brush the surface of. In my opinion, it is a book all women should have or have access to.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Every Woman Should Own This Book!
    After two months of agony and several incorrect diagnoses, I was correctly diagnosed with a "V" disorder and referred to the medical library in our town to look up my condition. They gave me this book, and at last, I understand what I have been going through and why. I am buying a copy of this book for myself and for each of my daughters-in-law. Every female should own this book--no woman should suffer in silence or be ashamed of this part of her body. And none of us should be subjected to continued misdiagnoses any longer. This book provides the information we need to help us lead healthier, happier lives and to be active, educated participants in our own health care. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It could literally be a life-saver for some women who have nowhere else to turn for answers. ... Read more

    Book Description

    This path-breaking study of gender and sexuality is the first to go beyond the nature/nurture debate to offer an alternate framework for considering questions of sex and sexuality.

    Why do some people prefer heterosexual love while others fancy the same sex? Is sexual identity biologically determined or a product of convention? In this brilliant and provocative book, the acclaimed author of Myths of Gender argues that even the most fundamental knowledge about sex is shaped by the culture in which scientific knowledge is produced.

    Drawing on astonishing real-life cases and a probing analysis of centuries of scientific research, Fausto-Sterling demonstrates how scientists have historically politicized the body. In lively and impassioned prose, she breaks down three key dualisms - sex/gender, nature/nurture, and real/constructed - and asserts that individuals born as mixtures of male and female exist as one of five natural human variants and, as such, should not be forced to compromise their differences to fit a flawed societal definition of normality. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars When It Comes to Sex ,... all comes down to emotions, recalling that the original meaning of that word was a movement of people, a civil disturbance. From the intersexual to the homosexual, Fausto-Sterling reviews the history and politics that informed the science and medical practice of 20th Century sex. I happily add this volume on the gender politics of popular science to a different but equally interesting work by Simon LeVay, Queer Science. However unlike LeVay, Fausto-Sterling recognizes a relationship between sexualized science and the rise of American monopoly capitalism (and its demands for social stability) though her observations in this arena are frustratingly preliminary. Readers of this book might also enjoy Jennifer Terry's An American Obsession which delves more deeply into cultural history.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Ambivalence
    This book delves into some of the biological and cultural issues regarding gender identity. In the introduction, Fausto-Sterling tells us that as a biologist, she accepts that there are biological influences on behavior, but at the same time, she is a feminist who is determined that gender identity is also culturally influenced. This book is framed as a kind of reconciliation between the extremes of the two camps. The early part of the book examines hermaphrodites or intersexuals through history. Fausto-Sterling points out that before medical intervention was standard, hermaphrodites were a recognized gender category, who even had their own rules of conduct and inheritance under Jewish law. She then turns her attention to the modern treatment of intersexuals, describing how thanks to charlatans like John Money, many have been surgically adjusted to fit one sex, while finding that their natural gender goes the other way, and they are consequently trapped in bodies that go against nature. She reviews many studies of the medical intervention of intersexuals and infant gender re-assignment, finding dismally few success stories.

    The second half of the book takes up a variety of topics. Chapter 5, for instance, discusses and dismisses reported differences between the corpus callosum in men and women. In this chapter, Fausto-Sterling goes to great length to explain how the statistics for the corpus callosum studies may be flawed, but it seems she misses a larger point- -are there any behavioral traits that are associated with the corpus callosum anyway? Even if women turned out to have a corpus callosum that was five times as big, on average, than that of men, so what? We don't know enough yet about the function of the corpus callosum to hazard a guess as to what such results might point to, so finding or not finding a difference in size isn't that consequential. Later chapters in the book cover the history of sex hormone studies, hormones and the development of the brain. The book closes with an analysis of the author's own development of a gender identity, and an analogy of gender identity as a set of Russian dolls, where each influence on gender identity, from genetic to hormonal to cultural, fits within the larger context. And then comes 120 pages of endnotes, followed by 70 pages of bibliography, and the index.

    In previous work, Fausto-Sterling had proposed that there are not 2 but many human genders, including separate categories for each preference of sexual activity. In this book she doesn't exactly argue explicitly for many genders, but she almost seems to assume the idea. She also points out that people's sexual activities may change over time, and thus it may be hard to categorize a person as being throughout life a member of one gender or another. I'm not sure I agree with her on this point. I think it might be more accurate to recognize that are only 2 biological genders, each associated with specific physical and behavioral traits, but that not everyone actually fits neatly into these categories. Indeed, if we have a very tightly defined notion of male and female together with all associated traits, perhaps no one actually matches one gender exactly. But that's not to say that we need to multiply the gender categories- -we just need to recognize and respect each person for who he, she, or even it, is.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good
    I must admit that I was expecting more of a "Myths of Gender 2". Still, this book provides an excellent introduction to an often neglected but important issue. Fausto-Sterling is always a pleasure to read.

    5-0 out of 5 stars opens up the closed doors behind gender "research"
    I highly recommend this book.It will liberate you from the
    now recent obesession with gender "differences" and you will
    see the world around you in a new light.
    The book is pleasant and does not talk down to the reader
    as many of the "gender difference" books do.It isn't
    preachy or arrogant,instead it makes the reader think about
    how the world around them has been so manipulated to keep
    status quo thinking going.
    This is not a gender differences book,it's a book which
    let's us know we are all complex and not actually
    limited by gender specific behavior,as the "researchers"
    call "appropriate" behavior or apptitudes which people have
    been labeled.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Leading Feminist Embryologist Takes on Her Own Science
    Fausto-Sterling will take her place in feminist history as the leading embryologist, and perhaps even, the leading scientist, doing gender studies in the latter 20th and earlier 21st centuries. Who would have thought she could excell beyond her ground-breaking text, "Myths of Gender"?

    This time she takes on her own scientific field, exposing how blindered, sexist, heterosexist, and flat out stuck and harm-inducing it has become. Given that she presents her arguments in the body of the text in a very reader-friendly language and style, and has nearly a separate text of endnotes of hard-core feminist critical analyses ta boot, we've got in this great work of hers a text reminiscent of Virginia Woolf's "Three Guinneas."

    Anne Fausto-Sterling's special interest this go around is science's primary complicity in the (hetero) sexing of psycho-medically dominated and controlled bodies. She provides one of the best feminist analyses of Gender Systematicity as the key politically shaped, shaping, and biased torture device for transsexual and intersex people today.

    This is a very important text for sexology, feminist, gender, queer, US, cultural, and transgender studies, history of science, and anthropology of medicine and science. It's a brave read, if not deadly on point. Probably best for graduate scholars, but should be required for any professional in sexology, gender specialist, or medical personnel before they lay one hand or idea of treatment on transsexual or intersex people! ...

    Book Description

    The "hormone of desire," testosterone, acts on the brain to stimulate sexual interest, sensitivity to sexual stimulation, and orgasmic ability in both sexes. The amount of testosterone circulating in a woman's blood declines by about 50 percent between her twenties and fifties. The most common complaint associated with this decline is a seemingly unexplainable decrease or loss of sexual desire and enjoyment.

    In I'm Not in the Mood, Dr. Reichman reveals the effectiveness of small doses of testosterone in reviving sexual desire and pleasure for women. Questions answered and topics discussed include:

    • Why and when do women make male hormones?

    • Where do all our male hormones go?

    • Behavior, life changes, and medical problems that affect our libido

    • Medications that affect our libido

    • Will creams, pills, lozenges, patches, or shots help?

    • When you should see a psychiatrist, psychologist, or sex therapist

    • How to discuss libido issues with your doctor

    • How to reach your biologic sexual potential

    Dr. Reichman addresses the sexual problems that so many women have, but doctors usually dismiss or ignore. At last, a book that gives honest and solid information to women of all ages. Love her style and honesty. From seeing her on Today show, I trust her caring concern for women's health, which so many studies and doctors place after men's health issues. I've recommended this book to many of my friends and after reading it they have all thanked me. Most important, they say it has impacted their life positively.

    4-0 out of 5 stars More for your peri/menopausal woman
    I was impressed by the information provided in the book. Also, Dr. Reichman is quite entertaining in her representations. But I found that this book was more geared toward those women who are peri-menopausal or menopausal, or even post-menopausal. As a 29 year old, I found some of the information a bit 'out of my league'. I can't say that it didn't help me at all; it certainly did. But I guess I was looking for something that was aimed at someone who spends a lot of time going, "I'm not sick or depressed, I'm not middle-aged, I'm not unattracted to my husband, I'm not on medication; what's wrong with me?" Buy it, but just know that's not the purpose of it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A good start for client and clinician discussion
    I have used this book in my clinical practice as a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner for the past couple of years to treat Female Diminished Libido. I loan my copy out to my patients who don't want to purchase this book and have had tremendous success with my patients. I have my client read the book over a couple of weeks while waiting for lab results to come back and then we discuss her lab results and what she discovered in the book. The book has had the beneficial effect that most of my patients are able to honestly reveal if there is marital discord that may not have been admitted to in the first appointment. Opening up the way for a sex therapist or marriage counselor has been another positive benefit of this book. I find that many of my patients were reluctant to consider counseling in the first appointment, but were willing to include counseling as part of the treatment plan of their decreased libido. So many women learn about the female body and functions for the first time while reading this book. Every patient has been very happy with this book and no longer felt alone with this problem. They were able to realize that other women have suffered with this same problem and that, most of the time, there is positive results with hormones, exercise, honest communication with their spouse, counseling and/or treatment for depression. I plan to continue to use this book in my treatment of Diminished Female Libido.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
    In reading dozens of books on sex, I've noticed that books written by MD's are usually much more informative than books written by others. Hence, I wasn't surprised that Reichman's book was better than the typical book espousing scented candles, dim lights, and other such glib superficialities as the panacea for all sexual problems. That said, I was nevertheless disappointed by this book. There were too many factual errors and inconsistencies in it (as a doctor, I think I'm qualified to say that). Even some drug names were misspelled -- not a big deal, perhaps, but if a doc can't correctly spell the name of a drug, one wonders if commensurate care was given to the other facts presented. In this case, I was disappointed. The professionalism of the book was further eroded by Reichman's frequent puns and attempts at interjected humor. I have nothing against doctors showing their human side, but when Reichman did it, it seemed stilted, not natural. I could excuse all of these drawbacks if the book were packed with more information, but its scope was very narrow and there was so much the author could have said that she did not.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's something men need to know also!
    I NEVER know why women aren't in the mood!! The frustration!! AAAAAAA!! I bought this book to help me in this area, and I have to say it has helped me out a lot. It's a must read for any guy. Another great book to read is The Hormone Desire; The Truth About Testosterone, Sexuality and Menopause. I know, these are books for women, but if you know why she isn't in the mood, you can take what is found in these two books and use it to put her IN the mood! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The "Bible" for Gyn Surgery
    There are at least two texts that are considered "the authority" for internal medicine. The same for Obstetrics.

    For Gyn surgery there is only one, and this is it. Te Linde's is so far ahead of any competitors that all Gynecologists I know consider any other texts to be useful only as supplements to Te Linde's.

    It is also written in an easy to follow style - not as dry as many medical texts, and it is exhaustively complete. It would be worth the price (for a Gyn Surgeon) if only for the portions dealing with hysterectomy and surgical treatment of cystocele and stress urinary incontinence.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I owe my pregnancy to this book!
    I never write book reviews, but I owe the birth of my daughter to the advice given by this book! After 6 years of no contraception, my husband and I finally decided that we were going to REALLY TRY to have a child, so I bought this book, as a starting point to figure out what we--both over 35-- needed to do to get pregnant. In our case, the changes in lifestyle recommended in the book were all we needed; I got pregnant 3 months after putting its advice into practice. This is the perfect book to start with if you want to create a lifestyle that gives you the best chance for getting pregnant, without starting with the infertility drugs. Note that the medical options are also discussed in the book, as well as how much time is reasonable for trying to get pregnant "naturally." Good Luck!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Useless
    If you had problem with conception for some time, chances are that you already did your 'homework' and read about all possible causes and treatment on the Internet, or discussed it with your doctor. This book is a very general summery of infertility problems, and mainly a big ad for the authors' treatment plan that is available, I assume, in the hospital where they work. I would not recommend this book to anybody - you can definitely find more useful info online, and definitely cheaper!

    1-0 out of 5 stars "just relax and you'll get pregnant?"
    This comes so dangerously close to blaming infertility on things like inability to relax. How many IVF and other patients with serious medical conditions have had the insulting advice, "if you just relax you'll get pregnant". The best advice anyone can get is to get to a top quality medical specialist as soon as possible, not to get distracted or be given false hope by this nonsense.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This book contains many important fertility secrets
    My doctor told me and my husband that we needed IVF. We were a little concerned about the use of a high technology treatment so early in our quest to build a family. This book helped us identify many important life-style issues and stressors that probably contributed to our fertility problem. Fertility treatments can cause a lot of emotional stress, and this book helped us to cope with these problems. We think it helped us to get pregnant.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It helped me get pregnant
    As a chef, i was in a high stress job, that required me to work over 60 hours per week. I followed the advice in chapters 1 and 4 and became pregnant in 3 months. Following the advice in this book was a lot better than going through IVF. ... Read more

    Book Description

    Helping the Stork The sourcebook for all the information parents-to-be need to know about the choices and challenges of donor insemination Each year donor insemination (DI) offers a pathway to parenthood for the hundreds of thousands who turn to family-building alternatives. Although DI is considered as often as adoption, couples facing male infertility, as well as single women and lesbian couples, have had few places to turn for information about this method, which has been shrouded in secrecy. In Helping the Stork, parents-to-be, as well as friends and family, doctors, and counselors, can explore the choices and challenges raised by this alternative to overcoming childlessness. This comprehensive handbook moves through each step of the process: reaching a solid decision about whether donor insemination is the best choice for a family's future; handling the difficult issue of privacy; selecting a donor and getting started; and learning to thrive as a family meeting DI's added challenges. Full of wisdom from medical and mental health experts, Helping the Stork is also enriched with stories from many families who share their insights and experiences. This book is a reassuring, supportive, and helpful guide that no one considering or going through the process of donor insemination should be without. Visit us online at ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars I wish there were more books on this subject!
    This book was great. After doing much research, I've found that finding information on donor insemination is difficult. I knew so little about DI (donor insemination) that I wasn't even sure what questions to ask. This book gave me a lot of information and enough knowledge to make a list of good, informed questions to ask my doctor. I do agree with one reviewer that it focuses a bit too much on the emotional aspect, but DI is an emotional decision. I disagree with the reviewer who said this book pushes parents to not tell their child of their DI origins. I found it to be the opposite and it seemed to me that the authors were for telling the child of their conception.

    I gave this book 4 stars because, even though it is a very good information source, there is a lot more they could have added, and a good deal they could have left out. More information on the medical and financial aspect of DI and fewer anecdotes would have given this book a 5 star rating in my opinion. All in all, it's an excellent book for someone just beginning the DI process and needing a basic guide.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Some useful info but not quite enough detail
    While this book gave me an overview of the basic process of donor insemination (DI), its pitfalls and successes, I found myself wanting...more. More information, more details on exactly how it all works, why, statistics, etc. This book is, in my opinion, more focused on the emotions of dealing with infertility -- complete with little vignettes *ad nauseum* from DI parents -- the DI process and dealing with postpartum DI concerns. (While those issues are indeed important and that info useful, it wasn't really what I had expected the book to be majoratively focused on.)

    For single women choosing to parent alone or for lesbian couples, you may find this book a little tiresome, as a good 90% of the language and content addresses couples and nearly every vignette/personal story (perhaps 98%) is from a DI couple. The authors are very upfront about this right in the foreword for the book, but they should perhaps be more forthcoming about that fact on the bookjacket/editorial description, as by then you've likely purchased the book. :-) In the meantime, I've ordered Single Mother by Choice (by Mattes) and have higher hopes.

    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

    Book Description

    Infertility is a heartbreaking condition that can affect every aspect of a woman's life, and 9 million American couples struggle with it each year.

    In Conquering Infertility, Harvard psychologist Dr. Alice Domar-whom Vogue named the "Fertility Goddess"-provides infertile women with what they need most: stress relief, support, and hope. Within a year, more than 50 percent of the patients who used her mind/body techniques along with their infertility treatment conceived pregnancies that resulted in a baby, compared with 20 percent who did not use the mind/body tools.

    Dr. Domar provides wise, strong words on:

    * sustaining a career during infertility
    * coping when friends and family members become pregnant
    * navigating the medical maze
    * what to do when infertility threatens your belief in God
    * exploring other options when treatment fails

    With Conquering Infertility, women learn how to cope with infertility in a much more positive way and carve a path-however unexpected-toward a rich, full, happy life.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read
    I have been going thru infertility for over 3 years now, I picked up this book and at first had an attitude with it, how dare she say I do all of these things and I'll get pregnant. Then a day or two later I remembered that I did do a mind/body program at our local hospital and I DID get pregnant with my next IVF cycle. (I did loose the baby at 11 weeks due to other medical problems). Not saying that this is the all in all answer, but I do believe that being in touch with your inner being is a good thing. I run a peer group infertility group and have recommended this to everyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful information
    My husband and I have been going through infertility for over 5 years. I wish we had this book years ago. It answered so many questions on tests, procedures and what happens next. Great book to have.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Informative but too much of a marketing tool for author
    After having read several books on infertility, I must say that this one was the one I liked the least. Although there were sections that were very informative, the author ended every other paragraph with, "if you come to my mind-body classes, you will get pregnant." All of us who are going through this infertility rollercoaster, truly believe that going to our doctor, following his/her plan of treatment and doing only good things for ourselves, will bring a positive result. We don't need someone telling us that we should travel or look out for the next workshop in order to guarantee fertility. Too subjective and author had her own agenda which doesn't make for a positive experience. There are other books that can help you cope with infertility rather than tell you that what you're doing is wrong. Try Laugh-in Infertility. I could not stop laughing with this book and it made me feel better about my situation.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely incredible!!! Definitely a "MUST READ"!!!
    I'm not the most avid reader in my house, that title belongs to my husband. This book was definitely the exception! To use my husband's words, I completely devoured this book!

    Every issue I had dealing with PCOS and with Trying To Conceive was dealt with in this book. The book is very easy to read, very easy to understand, and is incredible! You can really tell that Alice Domar knows exactly what she's talking about, and really has been counseling couples dealing with these same issues - they were the exact same issues we had been dealing with, and for someone to put it into words as wonderfully as she was very enlightening.

    Everyone who is trying to conceive and has PCOS MUST read this book as soon as possible.

    Thanks millions Alice!!!

    Book Description

    Reproductive ecology is one of the most exciting and fastest-growing subareas of evolutionary anthropology. Thanks to recently developed, noninvasive techniques for monitoring key aspects of reproductive physiology, new investigations into the interactions between reproduction and a broad array of ecological, behavioral, and constitutional variables can now be carried out under the full range of cultural and ecological conditions that characterize human beings and wild primates. Not only do these studies dramatically expand our understanding of human and primate physiology, but they shed fresh light on central issues in human evolution as well. In Reproductive Ecology and Human Evolution, Dr. Ellison, one of the pioneers in this new field, brings together thirty-one of the most active and influential scientists investigating the evolutionary ecology of primate and human reproduction. The resulting volume both captures the current state of the field and charts the research agenda that will guide its future.

    The volume’s eighteen chapters are grouped into four sections that reflect the central focus of the contributions: Physiological Context; Ecological Context; Developmental Context; and Comparative Context,. The lively nature of the field is echoed in the resonance that extends to many of the individual chapters, wherein areas of controversy and disagreement are presented along with areas of consolidation and consensus. Students and researchers in the fields of biological anthropology, human biology, and primatology, as well as those from adjacent disciplines such as demography, medicine, social anthropology, and public health, will find Reproductive Ecology and Human Evolution an indispensable guide to the frontiers of this exciting terrain ...

    At least one-third of Americans use alternative medicines to heal and maintain health--75% of those consumers are women.Today, women are demanding their doctors have a willingness to explore and combine complementary and conventional medical practices in their approach to female health.The result is a bridge between the two schools of thought commonly known as integrated medicine which requires women to become proactive in their role as patient and provides a safe, effective approach to maintaining and healing their bodies.

    Women's Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine covers in depth the whole range of women's health concerns including menstrual difficulties, menopause, endometriosis, osteoporosis and others and explains how integrated medicine can be used to treat these conditions.

I found it in this book. It contains more information on endometriosis than any other resource I have looked through. It also provides thorough dietary suggestions and nutritional supplements. It offers an alternative to the more extreme therapies.

    While I was looking to this book for a specific condition, it also contains a wealth of information on the various ailments that women suffer from, as well as suggestions for women's overall health.

    I highly reccommend it to anyone looking to feel better, naturally.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best book available on natural medicine for women
    This is an exceptionally well-researched and well-written book covering the most common medical problems for women, how to prevent them and how to treat them the natural way. I am particularly impressed with the author's broad knowledge of biochemistry, medical conditions and her reliance on hard data from published studies. If you're tired of the side-effects of chemical drugs you'll find plenty of sound advice and alternative therapies backed up by scrupulous research. This is a great stand-alone volume on the subject but it also complements other books on women's medical conditions written from traditional medical viewpoints. ... Read more
