A book every girl and woman should read

Lisa managed to digest the last century of material on fertility and the “period” and it is the best knowledge a young or any woman can have. The fertility awareness and all other insights in the book, like how to identify health problems through your chart, should be mainstream- every parent, school and gp should know about it. She bravely challenges the misconception about the safety of the pill, the gaslighting of women by medical practitioners. The book is like a bible on fertility health. It is a must have for any women trying to avoid or achieve pregnancy, but also to be... healthy! I salute Lisa for her determination to change the field of women care and empower women to know and listen to their body. The Fertility Friday podcast brought to us this incredible book that should be translated in all languages.
