Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler, MPH. This one was recommended to me on here. Although this does have focus on using fertility awareness to achieve/avoid pregnancy, it also explains what exactly a fertile women's body goes through every month really thoroughly. It made me realize that ovulation is a pretty cool thing. Also it has inspired me to change to a hormone-free birth control (hopefully getting and copper IUD soon!) so I can track my ovulation, just to appreciate it.
Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom by Christiane Northrup, MD. This discusses overall women's health, from reproductive organs and pregnancy, to healthy diet and mood. This does discuss alternative healing techniques as well (like chakras and healing a woman's energy system). I don't necessarily agree with everything in here, but it's fascinating to read, and extremely informative. Lots of patient stories as well.
So a few questions:
What are some great books you have read about women's health?
How do these books discuss women's health? Is it technical vs. personal accounts, traditional western medicine vs. alternative approaches, etc.
