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.Read more ›
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.
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!
