I bought the book wanting to know more specifically on the getting pregnant. So it sounds like I got the right book.

I have the book, didn't think much of it in general - some good advice yes, but I wish the PCOS books out there wouldn't get hung up on reproduction, its totally annoying to me.

But the book is worth reading in general the info in it can he good for those trying to balance things out and what not, but its not a one book fits all by any means, some of what the book covers doesn't cover all who have PCOS.

I purchased this book along with the GI Diet for Living with PCOS (I don't remember the exact title), and another GI diet book. I'm waiting for them to arrive. I'm so excited!

author Walter Futterweit, M.D., with George Ryan

I was wondering if anyone has read this book. Chapter one was great. I now know more of how to explain things to my gyn and I'm not even to the chapter that helps you talk to your dr.

Just curious?!
