Hmm, it was ok. It depends on what you want out of this kind of book really. I found that it contained the basics plus maybe a little more on endometriosis , it was info that you can very easily obtain from the Internet, from endo websites etc.I liked the friendly banter in this book, also the humour - appealed to my dry sense of humour, and I do believe that if a woman has just been diagnosed, and they do not know a thing about it, or they do not/can not research on the Internet, then this book ...more

Although this book gives some good information and is factually accurate I find the treatment advice in this book partly rather appalling. Postponing your period with birth control pills just to suit your social calendar or taking pain killers in anticipation of pain are both harmful practices! Popping pills like that will not solve your problems, but rather make them worse in the long run!

Recommends it for: Everyone with endo or fertility problems
This book is a great resource for anyone who thinks they might have endometriosis. It is the perfect balance between medical details and useful applications of it. I've had endo for a long time and this book clarified a lot of other symptoms I've had that may even be caused by endo (such as hypoglycemia, which could be cause by endo spreading to intestines).
I ordered this book from the library for my partner and found that of all the books on Endometriosis that I have read - containing the same information over and over - this one had a few extras.

I have endometriosis and I am shocked at how little people know about this disease, especially men. I need to have several copies at my house to hand out to the men in my life.
