With fascinating, reliable, and up-to-date explanations, Toni Weschler reveals all that we should know about our fertility and sexuality while demystifying the wondrous nature of reproduction. Her practical approach to Fertility Awareness is presented in a compassionate and empowering way. Whether you want to be pregnant or to avoid pregnancy, or simply understand female fertility better, this is the book for you.

– Penny Simkin, PT, author of Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn: The Complete Guide and The Birth Partner: Everything You Need to Know to Help a Woman Through Childbirth

This well-established book by Toni Weschler is a ‘must-read’ for all infertile couples who wish to gain a basic understanding of their ovulatory cycle, how to evaluate their infertility, avoid unnecessary and expensive testing, and get right to the heart of their problem with minimal delay. This book clears up a great deal of confusion that couples may have about the optimal methods of achieving pregnancy with a conventional, non-technological approach. The illustrations are superb, and the explanations easy to follow. I highly recommend reading this book as a beginning point in treating infertility.

– Sherman J. Silber, M.D., Director, Infertility Center of St. Louis at St. Luke’s Hospital and author of How to Get Pregnant with the New Technology

Taking Charge of Your Fertility is an invaluable resource for women seeking to better understand their reproductive cycles and take an active role in their own healthcare. It serves as a significant diagnostic tool to both evaluate fertility-related concerns and monitor ovulation treatment, and thus I highly recommend it for both clinicians and patients alike.

– Mark Perloe, M.D., Medical Director, Georgia Reproductive Specialists, Atlanta, Georgia

Toni Weschler’s book , Taking Charge of Your Fertility, provides couples with the tools to do just that, empowering them with knowledge and hope at a time when they may feel out-of-control. Infertility often robs couples of a lifetime of expectations, replacing them with an increasing sense of loss. Toni helps couples reclaim control of their lives with a simple and compassionate approach to understanding their fertility. There is no other book like it on the market, and I strongly recommend that it be read by physicians and patients alike

Marvelous book….It is the most complete and empowering book on this subject matter I have read. Your format and coverage of this topic is exceptional.

We feel very fortunate to experience pregnancy again and credit your book with giving us the knowledge to maximize our chances.

Yesterday I received your book, Taking Charge of Your Fertility. I finished it today. What an incredible book. It is so full of information that I could read it 10,000 times and pull something different out each time. Thank you for writing such an informative book.

– Cindi Aschenbrenner Enterprise, Oregon

Your book is absolutely fabulous; I refer to it as my bible. As I began reading it little light bulbs started going on; everything finally made sense. It’s very informative and detailed. I only wish I had found it sooner. It really has changed my perception of fertility, and someday soon I know it will have changed my life. Thanks for writing such a great book.

I love your book, Taking Charge of Your Fertility! It has opened my eyes to the wonders of my body. Your work is vital to a world that is becoming less and less in tune with their bodies.

– Denise Evarts New York, New York

Your book has made a wonderful and dramatic impact on me. I feel as if I’ve awoken from a long, deep sleep into a world of clarity and beauty! I finally understand what is happening in my own body. It is exciting and fascinating. I am now pregnant. Most importantly I am empowered! Thank you for such a wonderful gift. If I have a daughter you can be sure your book will be presented as a most treasured gift at the appropriate time. Meanwhile, any woman close to me will be hearing about your book.

– Janet Villani-Garratt Woodstock, New York

he book was a godsend. I devoured it voraciously, absolutely barraging my husband with the information that I acquired about both my own body and his. I can’t thank you enough for educating me about my own reproductive system. For fourteen years I have participated in the fertility cycle and have known next to nothing about the mechanisms responsible for it. I was unappreciative to the wonder of my own body…What was especially valuable about your book is that it went beyond the baseline experience of FAM. You explored the various patterns that women will practically encounter in their charting. The recognition of these variables is important so that every woman will appreciate her uniqueness and not feel she is abnormal if she does not conform to the standard…I cannot contain my enthusiasm about FAM. I am in command of my own body now and I am elated. You should be incredibly proud for the service that you have done all women in the sharing of your knowledge. Thank you again for your wonderful book.

– Jennifer Chellis Olivieri New York, New York

Quite simply, your book has changed my life. I can’t thank you enough for taking the time, and making the effort required, to create such an informative work. From the moment I opened Taking Charge of Your Fertility, I was mesmerized. I sat in the bookstore for an hour, reading the appendixes. So many of my questions were right there on the page! So many of my concerns were addressed. I brought the book home and read it, cover to cover, in one sitting. Your gift to me through Taking Care of Your Fertility, has value beyond measure! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!
