4 Fertility Books Worth Reading

I’m sharing a few fertility books that I have read myself and a few that others having gone through infertility have recommended as well. Dealing with infertility can be frustrating, but educating yourself about your fertility will help you along on your fertility journey.

I am sharing these fertility books in no particular order. You may have seen that I wrote my own infertility book on how to mentally handle your infertility diagnosis without letting it define you. I wrote this as we were going through our own personal infertility journey. I’ll link to it and share about it at the end.

These 4 books about fertility and infertility are ones you should really read.

It Starts with the Egg: How the Science of Egg Quality Can Help You Get Pregnant Naturally, Prevent Miscarriage, and Improve Your Odds in IVF

“It Starts With The Egg” is quite a popular book. In fact, it’s a #1 Best Seller! It was recommended to us when we started at our fertility clinic to conceive our first child. Even the fertility clinic we went to recommended to read it.

Description about the book (from the marketing areas): A practical and evidence-backed approach for improving egg quality and fertility— fully revised and updated in 2019.

This book discusses so many thing, the main thing being egg quality. It’s important to understand the quality of your eggs, how to properly choose the right supplements to help maintain your current egg health, or improve it if possible.

This book even covers “The Egg Quality Diet”, which would be good for anybody having any infertility problems whether they’re egg quality related or not!

The Fertility Doctor’s Guide to Overcoming Infertility: Discovering Your Reproductive Potential and Maximizing Your Odds of Having a Baby

The Fertility Doctor’s Guide to Overcoming Infertility book was recommended by a fellow co-worker who worked closely with a fertility clinic before. I really liked this one.

This book discusses things like both men’s and women’s prenatal health, understanding ovulation, the reality of ovarian age testing, confronting both infertility and secondary infertility, some infertility causes, recurrent pregnancy loss, endometriosis, PCOS, male factor infertility and so much more.

  • new illustrations, photographs, and an expanded color insert

As I mentioned before, I wrote a book about how I handled dealing with the diagnosis of infertility. It wasn’t an easy thing to swallow and I wanted to share my story in hope that it would help others get through the process as well.

You can learn more about Infertility is a Diagnosis, Not a Definition in this post.

I hope one of these fertility books can help you learn more about your fertility and will help you achieve a healthy pregnancy.
