If you agree with it, you need to read this book. Here you will find options to manage your fertility, guidance for listening to your belly, and the loving embrace of sisterhood."  —Susun Weed, author, Wise Woman Herbal series

This book should be mandatory reading -- for everyone! This book was the tipping point for me, as I was already contemplating getting off the pill. Had I known ALL the terrible things that can be caused by taking hormonal birth control every day (ha! that already sounds terrible), I would have never gone on it in the first place. Although I was a model user with no side effects, reading this book made me realize that I did (and do) in fact have side effects! Thankfully, this came into my hands at the right time and I sincerely hope that I still have time to reverse the damange I have done to myself. I have already lent this book out to other women, and will keep telling everyone I know about it. There are such better options out there, and they will definitely make you feel more natural, happier and more like you! Read this -- I HIGHLY encourage it. If nothing else, you will at least be armed with all the information you can be before making any decision. I truly wish I was...

On another note, only half of this book speaks to pill-users exclusively. The other half deals with the menstrual cycle and hormones as a whole, so it is a worthwhile read for everyone, at whatever point they are in their journey. I would even recommend this book to men, as the pill affects both partners in a relationship, and men should know about the effects, as well. Bennet and Pope do an excellent job at keeping the language simple, as well as blame-free, and I have already graduated onto the other books they recommend for natural fertility and contraception.

Good luck!

The pill is not natural and as an OB/GYN RN, Maternity Nurse, I have recommended for decades that women leave these hormones out of their bodies. They are toxic

I recommend this book to all females in every stage of their lives and menstrual flow.

Moms and Grandmoms read and recommend to your daughters so they are 100% aware of the effects of hormonal birth control. Excellent information about other options to be in control of your reproductive capacity and menstrual cycles.

Have your sons read it so they are more informed about the pills effects on the females they love. Men will learn how to be responsible with their partner around fertility awareness and reproductive responsibility without poisoning their loved ones bodies with synthetic hormones.

Dads read too so they are informed males.

I have worked in public schools for over 25 years. I am flabbergasted at the numbers of females put on the pill at very young ages to: "regulate" their cycles, diminish PMS and cramps, lighten flow, etc. Very few young girls cycles are regular until their bodies work their way into what is and will be normal for them.

The pill does not fix anything; it only creates a synthetic hormone induced cycle. Long term consequences are not anything I would want in my body or my daughters.

I have been teaching females for decades to avoid hormonal birth control. The side effects are awful and the long term consequences will come back to haunt you.

Fertility awareness and natural means of regulating your reproduction are far healthier options.

Creating a healthy menstrual cycle is easy with good nutrition, herbs to support getting one's body back into a rhythm, and making natural, whole health choices for your body.

This is a very important book for everyone woman (and man) to read. I read this when I was considering going on the pill and I am so glad I did. I now know so much more about my body and will never go on the pill and will actively urge other women and girls not to. Our bodies are amazing things and to muck around with it so much is crazy.
This book is easy to read, easy to understand and very insightful.
