Format: Paperback
There are some fantastic books on fertility on the market. This one isn't even remotely close. The Fertility Handbook tries to do it all in 135 pages and sadly, ends up doing very little. This little book attempts to cover everything from emotional concerns to all of the causes and treatments of infertility and causes of & living after miscarriage.
What happens is this: important topics get watered down, and so simplified that they aren't practically useful. Want to learn how to chart your temperature? Hope you're a quick learner, because you get one paragraph to figure it out. Wandering how you should take care of your body while trying to conceive? Don't miss it - it's all in one paragraph.
And yet it's puzzling that there are two pages on selective reduction of multiples, something that very few women will have to face. And if they do, I hope women look at more thorough books than this one to make their decision...

I thought this book was ok. The book Taking Charge of Your Fertility I ended up buying after this book and I thought that book was a lot more helpful. I would say go with the other book over this one.

There are a lot of infertility books out there. Most of them repeat the same information over and over again. This is one of the more worthless specimens of this latter sort. If you haven't read a single infertility book, then you might find something of value in this book. (But I would get it -- or something similar to it -- from the library if I were you.) If you've already done some reading, then skip this one -- there's nothing new in it.

This book was my introduction to getting a diagnosis (and treatment) for infertility. It is a great "quick-reference" book--it covers the basics in a very clear fashion. It's a great place to start learning if you find yourself starting the intense journey of infertility treatment. I highly recommend this book for couples.
