Best of all I had minimum PMS symptoms after taking the vitamins one full cycle and my luteal phase started to lengthen.

What a fabulous book! I have read (no, memorized) the second and third editions and become pregnant twice while following Shannon's advice. I've never written a review before, but I am so impressed by this book I have to take the time. Unlike other books I've read of the same genre, there is so much information packed into this little book that I find something new with every re-read. There is good information for young women struggling with PMS, or trying to generally improve their health or get pregnant. There is good information for women who are pregnant or nursing (indeed I wish I'd had this book when I was doing both). There is good information for women struggling with infertility or miscarriages or age-related infertility. There is good information for menopausal women. And there's even good information about the vitamins and minerals that can enhance your husband's fertility.
The initial section on general nutrition is a great guide to healthy eating with valuable tips about shopping and preparation. (I found Shannon's information about essential fatty acids particularly helpful.) The subsequent chapters hold invaluable information about the role that different vitamins (like B6, folic acid) and minerals (like magnesium and selenium) play in regulating and enhancing a woman's cycle and her fertility (including topics like controlling PMS and handling menopause). Table V, on recommended supplements, has become my personal "bible" for vitamin supplementation - something I never "believed in" before reading this book. As Shannon suggests in chapter 15, I hired a local (Chicago-area) nutritionist to help me with supplements. She read Shannon's book for the first time at my request and confirmed my opinion that this book is excellent.

I found this book to contain some good information, some of it not available in other fertility books I've read. Its biggest drawback is probably its length- it's about 140 pages, and much of that space is spent discussing general nutrition, as well as more controversial topics such as fertility and night lighting. I would therefore recommend it as a supplement to a more comprehensive book, not as the only book to buy. Women who experience PMS, irregularity or menstruation problems will find some good help in this book and should probably buy it.
This book is written by a Catholic author and published by the Couple to Couple league, so it takes a Catholic view on many issues. Those who cannot tolerate Catholic thought might not enjoy this book for that reason, as is evident from a few of the reviews below. However, the book does *not* discuss any issue that is not directly related to fertility and/or nutrition. It will therefore be very useful to anyone interested in these topics, Catholic or not.

by following the suggestions in this book, i have been able to overcome my PMS and dysmenorrhea. this book also motivated me to eat healthier and exercise regularly even though i am not overweight. most of all, marilyn shannon actually convinced me to cut down drastically on my consumption of chocolate and other sweets! what a difference all this has made: no more headaches! no more afternoon slumps! more energy! a smaller waistline! the information in this book is definitely NOT common knowledge. the author is pro-life and has some extreme beliefs (for instance, that masturbation is immoral), but this should not detract from the wealth of information and knowledge that this book offers. the index is one of the most detailed i've ever encountered. there are numeours typos and the design & lay-out could be much improved. nevertheless, i give it five stars. it is an excellent complement to toni weschler's "taking charge of your fertility", because shannon gives more detailed explanations for irregularities in temperature, cervical fluid, and luteal phase. the ultimate good news: on my last visit to the obgyne, she confirmed that i was ovulating again!

As a Family Physician, this book gave me some practical advice and solutions to many of the "untreatable" problems that many women suffer today. The diet and supplement program, particulary the "Optivite" supplement by Optimox Corp. has in many cases dramatically improved or cured patients and friends of frequent headaches, chronic low energy, infertility, dysmennorrhea, and severe PMS. One patient, a middle aged woman, still complained of severe fatigue and low energy in spite of adequete thyroid and hormonal replacements. With one week of diet and Optivite, as per this book, she was waking up early, and even had done her spring cleaning. This is only one of the many remarkable and unbelievable results I have witnessed. Spread the good news, this is an important read for all women.

Let me start by saying that I am 39 years old and expect to deliver my first child a few days before my 40th birthday!
I give this partly to Marilyn Shannon. I was unwilling to do synthetic fertility treatment, and a bit discouraged (sometimes very discouraged) because of my age at the chances of getting pregnant. Some friends and most Medical professionals were very discouraging.
Ms. Shannon's book was recommeded in 'Taking Charge of your fertility' , also a fantastic book. I learned things every woman past puberty ought to know about what the heck is going on in there.
My cycle changed dramatically when I started to take Ms. Shannon's advice. I am also hypo thyroid which makes it less likely to conceive.
So, I didn't meet my fella until a few years ago, and we were married only 6 months before we got pregnant.
Don't give up hope!
