I never read a book, but did a lot of online research especially when we found out that we had infertility issues.

Taking Charge of Your Fertility is a fabulous book. It's a bit long and some of the information seems a bit redundant at times, but I found the book very helpful. Taught me to get in touch with my body and pay attention to the signs that my body was sending out.

I'm glad to read these ideas. I need to check some of them out. I've never read a book either. My RE put me on south beach diet principles when ttc a few years ago so I read most of that book and it did help.

I have actually never read a book about fertility. I read up on fertility friend and learned from others on another board.

I read "Taking Charge of Your Fertility," but that was for NFP purposes when we first got married. I need to track it down again because I'm sure I'd learn more now.

I read most of "What to Expect Before You're Expecting," and one other book whose title I don't remember about the importance of preconception planning. I should re-read them as well, especially since I'm still 10-15 pounds overweight and don't have the best eating habits.

I haven't really read any book about fertility except all the class on Fertility Friend. Before my miscarriage I bought What to expect when your expecting and what to expect Eating Well When You're expecting. I really like the eating well book and have started to follow the guidelines in what to expect when your expecting for conception eating. They are both good books!

Up until now I've read:

- FertilityFriend, "Charting Your Way To Conception"
Free eBook, with the basics of charting. First book I read to prepare for TTC.

- Alisa Vitti, "Womancode"
Vitti has an interesting opinion on the link between food/lifestyle and your cycle, but she does not give all information a scientific basis.

- Toni Weschler, "Taking Charge Of Your Fertility"
THE big book of charting. Read it after 9 months of TTC/detailed charting and still learned new things from it.

- Daoshing Ni, "The Tao Of Fertility"
About the link between traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and fertility. I liked the holistic view it proposes as opposed to conventional Western medicine that only treats one body part at at time.

What books did you read? I'd love to know!
