Publisher's Summary

Nearly all women use contraception in their lifetimes…but very few understand more than the basics of how our bodies work, and why we need to spend more time on this vital choice.

Do you wonder what the long-term side effects of your current contraceptive choice may be?

Does your current method, if you have one, work well with your lifestyle, needs, and long-term plans?

Has anyone ever explained what all your options actually are?

More than 90 percent of sexually active women have only been given a very limited amount of information about how birth control works, often right at the beginning when they start their first pill or patch.

Not all of us enjoy biology lessons, and figuring out the complexities of hormones, cycles, and our bodies can feel a little too much. But it doesn’t need to be rocket science.

Getting a better insight into how your body really works can empower you and open up choices and possibilities so that you make the best decisions for yourself. After all, this is your body!

In this gentle, helpful, and supportive book, you will discover:

  • The science behind a woman's body and how to properly read your menstrual cycle for a better understanding of your hormones and how your body works
  • The hidden elements of birth control that everyone fails to mention at the start
  • All the available ways to prevent unwanted pregnancy, as well as STIs
  • What you should know about your own fertility and the mystery of the fertility awareness method (FAM)
  • What all your contraceptive options are, and how to make the best choices based on your time of life, needs, and overall health
  • Where to obtain the various methods, how they work, what they cost, and what side effects they may have
  • Why you may have missed your period, and how to quickly tell if you are pregnant or not
  • The ins and outs of the main female and fertility hormones, and how to work with them to keep PMS at bay
  • How hormones affect your mood, weight, water retention, and more

easy to understand

The book is well written and easy to understand, but so you are aware it has a lot of swearing. It shows that the author has a lot of compassion.

Worth it

Worth a read. This gives information that school etc does not. Understanding the body is important for everybody. Don't wait until you are trying, read this just to understand yourself. It contains as much about prevention as conception.
