The Infertility Survival Guide: Everything You Need to Know to Cope with the Challenges while Maintaining Your Sanity, Dignity, and Relationships contains testimonials from people who have survived fertility difficulties, as well as exercises and practical strategies for helping readers make informed decisions, cope with stress and anger, consider third-party reproductive options, and decide when it's time to quit treatment and move on, according to the Amazon description. Some reader reviewers found it a bit negative, but others raved about the comfort it offered in acknowledging the validity of their experience and offering coping mechanisms.
As the title says, Fertility Wisdom: How Traditional Chinese Medicine Can Help Overcome Infertility provides a different approach from that of Western medicine for handling difficult conception or infertility. Reviewers appreciated the focus on food (with recipes) and exercises and practices that would help maintain "life-attracting" health even after babies had been born.
Is Your Body Baby Friendly?
While it may seem like an odd question, it can be a good way to look at the problem of unexplained infertility or repeated miscarriages. In Is Your Body Baby-Friendly?: Unexplained Infertility, Miscarriage & IVF Failure - Explained and Treated, Dr. Alan Beers, MD, brings hope and a new approach through immunotherapy to patients who have been offered only condolences before. Almost universal five-star ratings from readers (the only criticism being some parts were a bit dry or technical) are represented by this comment:
Dr. Beer explains a very difficult science in language we can all understand and has helped countless couples complete their families after suffering many tragic losses and being unsuccessfully treated (not to mention financially and emotionally drained) by reproductive endocrinologists (REs). If only immune testing were routinely performed on all couples seeking help by REs.
Overcoming Male Infertility
Overcoming Male Infertility: Understanding Its Causes and Treatments is praised for its ability to let readers have technical and scientific information "without being treated like a specimen." And even maintaining a sense of humor. There are few resources for consumers specifically about male factor infertility, so this book stands out for that reason as well.
