    I've read most of that book. Do you recommend doing the charting too?

    Talking You HAVE to buy this book!

    This book is amazing!
    I have three children, the last two conceived because I used this book and the software that goes with it.

    DD1 - I had no trouble with when TTC, despite having a ruptured Ovarian cyst in my early 20's which resulted in my losing my left ovary and fallopian tube.

    However, two years later I had an ectopic (deal with conservatively with methotrexate an anti-cancer drug)
    I then TTC for the next three years without success.

    I was just getting very down and depressed when I found this book and website.
    I bought it immediately and read through it in one sitting.
    I got going straight away and using the charts and low and behold got PG quite quickly

    Unfortunately it was another ectopic (again dealt with by methotrexate) but they did do investigations and I was then loosely diagnosed with PCOS and told I would probably never have another child naturally.
    I went home disheartened but carried on with my charts.
    DS arrived just over 10 months later, with my TTC date spot on to the high point in my chart.
    DD2 arrived just 21 months after my DS and again my TTC date was spot on to the chart.
    I have been confirmed diagnosed with PCOS early this year and wish I had my book now - I lent it out for it never to return.

    I am going to buy another copy as it is a great book and definitely one I will encourage both DDs to read when the time comes.

    This books is wonderful. I recommend it constantly to my friends when I find out that they're TTC. It shows you how to get pregnant, how to keep from getting pregnant, and how to maintain gynecological health for life through watching and recording "events" that your body goes through It's all about the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) and is the most complete book I've had the pleasure of coming across.

    My only comments about this book that PCOS isn't fully examined or discussed. They mention what PCOS is and how it's treated, but nothing really about the health of the woman with PCOS (physical, psychological, or emotional).

    Overall, I recommend reading and studying this book carefully, and taking everything you can from it (as even with PCOS it helps when you undergo treatments), but if you would like something that is ONLY about PCOS-fertility, this book isn't it.

    I love this book! But, a tip, DO NOT just go to the index and then look at the pages about PCOS- this really depressed me one day.
