I was diagnosed with PCOS while trying to conceive and this book was recommended to me by my reproductive endocrinologist. The author does a stellar job at breaking down exactly what PCOS does to your reproductive body and then gives step-by-step solutions to combat the diagnosis. I was not an advocate of using fertility medications or IVF procedures (personal choice) so this book fit my lifestyle needs perfectly. After following the guidelines for two months (after not having an ovulatory cycle for three years) I was able to ovulate and conceive my baby boy who is now 8 months old! I highly recommend this book to any woman suffering with PCOS.
I have read both this book and "PCOS Dietbook" by Coletter Harris and found that this book really helped answer many questions I have about PCOS. My husband read this book when I was done with it and now he understands exactly what PCOS is and what you can do to help your fertility. I really enjoyed this book because it talks about miscarriages in PCOS women. All of the other books I have read just mention miscarriages. This book descirbes exactly what causes miscariages in PCOS women. It really made me understand what I can do to help lower the risks of miscariage!!
THIS IS A MUST HAVE!!!
I would highly recommend this book to anyone with PCOS that is trying to conceive. It is full of great information. She doesn't just give the technical information, but talks about the emotional aspect of coping with infertility. I love all of the books that I have read by Colette Harris.
