Books To Read on Your Fertility Journey

18 May Books To Read on Your Fertility Journey

your fertility journey book

Struggling with infertility can transform easy going people into anxious messes. The combination of grief, worry, appointment tracking, stress, and then some more grief and worry can get you in quite the energetic rut.

One thing you can do to occupy and soothe your worried mind and spirit is to read or listen to books that bring positive, soothing, inspiring messages and a sense of commiserating community into your world.

5 Recommended Books to Support Your Fertility Journey

Most of these books are directly related to infertility, but we’ve also added a couple that are dedicated to helping you remain centered in yourself as you navigate the ever-changing landscape of challenging emotions that are part of the fertility treatment journey.

Sharing a favorite or two with your family or close friends is also a smart way to give them insight into where you’ve been – and what you are going through – in a way that doesn’t require you to share the intimate details of your own journey.

1. In Courage Journal (Alexandra Elle)

If you are a longtime, active journaler this may not be the pick for you. Otherwise, we love the In Courage Journal as a way to actively greet each day with confidence and positivity using daily writing practices that help you set intentions, find strength, and learn self-love.

The journal prompts and messages are written by celebrated self-care author, Alexandra Elle, and presents simple morning and evening journaling prompts, creative writing exercises, and inspiring mantras. Creating a daily and evening practice that is reasonable for you can be a powerful way to strengthen the connection to your core self.

2. IVF a Detailed Guide: Everything I Wish I Had Known Before Starting My Fertility Treatments (Bianca Smith)

They say hindsight is 20/20, which is why women going through IVF can benefit from Bianca Smith’s IVF a Detailed Guide… Knowing what she wishes she would have known can help you prepare for the journey ahead.

Of course, your team of IVF specialists should also prepare you and have plenty of information detailing their process, but preparing at the personal level and having insider’s insight is always a bonus. The book is almost completely in bullet point format, which makes it easily scannable and a good resource to have on-hand as needed.

3. The Underwear in My Shoe (Brett Russo)

Author Brett Russo was already stressed out after trying unsuccessfully to conceive at home . Her panic only increased after one failed IVF cycle after another. Unrecognizable to herself after countless rounds of unsuccessful IVF, she felt like a failure to herself, a disappointment to her husband, and the only female on Facebook without kids. Sound familiar?

In The Underwear in My Shoe , Russo shows you that only when she truly lost herself did she discover her inner strength and a sisterhood in the other women going through IVF–discoveries that changed her forever. That reality is yours to be had as well.

4. Bearing the Unbearable (Joanne Cacciatore, Ph.D.)

While society is beginning to understand more about infertility and the rigors of fertility treatments (thanks to things like NIAW’s events), grief is often left behind in the unspoken realm. That’s because contemporary western culture treats grief as virtually nonexistent or something that should be “dealt with and gotten over” within days or weeks.

Those going through fertility treatments can feel perpetually in a state of grief and Joanne Cacciatore’s Bearing the Unbearable is a perfect companion for life’s most difficult times, revealing how grief can open our hearts to connection, compassion, and the very essence of our shared humanity. While not dedicated specifically to fertility, we believe that the grief space is universal and this book honors that.

5. It Starts with the Egg (Rebecca Fett)

This recommendation is a two in one because we’re recommending both of the books, I t Starts with the Egg: How the Science of Egg Quality Can Help You Get Pregnant Naturally, Prevent Miscarriage, and Improve Your Odds in IVF, as well as author Rebecca Fett’s cookbook companion, It Starts With the Egg Fertility Cookbook .

There is no doubt that egg quality is a major fertility factor, and that becomes especially important for women who are 38-years old or older. The book is based on the latest scientific research and offers a comprehensive program for improving egg quality in three months, with specific advice tailored to a variety of fertility challenges— including endometriosis, unexplained infertility, diminished ovarian reserve, PCOS, and recurrent miscarriage.

The cookbook companion addresses one of the most formative aspects of overall physical and fertility health: your pre-pregnancy diet (and has 1000 different recipes to try). Countless studies have shown a direct correlation between Mediterranean-styled diets and boosted IVF rates, not to mention reductions in infertility factor symptoms and side effects. It’s especially helpful for women who are overweight/obese, have PCOS, endometriosis or other inflammatory-related diagnoses.

Wanting Another Child: Coping with Secondary Infertility by Harriet Fishman Simons

Parents experiencing infertility experience many of the losses of childless individuals, but have unique issues to confront as well.

This book incorporates the narratives of 60 individuals coping with secondary infertility and draws on their experiences.

Going through this journey can be difficult, but look into these infertility books and resources to help guide you through the experience. No one source will have all the answers and support in one spot, but combining the expertise of a fertility specialist with the subject of these books on infertility can provide a well-rounded look into infertility.

The Best Fertility Books To Read In 2022 If You’re Trying To Conceive

Let's keep in touch.

Become a SFNSG insider to get my monthly newsletter packed with the latest hormone-healthy recipes + tips. No spamming or junk mail, EVER. 

Lifestyle , Motherhood , Wellness

Jump to recipe >.

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re looking for guidance or support around fertility and planning on expanding your family one day.

And while there is certainly NO shortage of content out there around fertility health (cool!) it’s also kind of overwhelming (i.e. SO much conflicting, complicated and sometimes downright shameful info to weed through).

While everyone is welcome to their own opinion and seeking out the information that fits best with their lifestyle, I want to make a few things clear as far as my stance:

+ I support every woman’s path and always encourage you to do what feels best/most helpful for you

+ i believe the male’s role is just as an important as the female’s in trying to conceive and too much pressure is often placed on women, + my goal is to offer women tools to help them support their hormones, heal their cycles and naturally boost fertility in simple, enjoyable and realistic ways (helping you feel and look your best in the process).

If those align with your views then I think you’ll find this roundup of the best fertility books to read in 2022 if you’re trying to conceive incredibly helpful.

As a nutrition and hormone health coach and mother of two small girls I’ve done a ton of professional and personal research on fertility, and out of ALL of the books out there I found these fertility books to be the most helpful, actionable and supportive (without being annoying, overwhelming or boring).

Above all I encourage you to take what you need on your unique path and know I’m here in your corner cheering you on along the way.

Need more recipes + tools to help you naturally boost fertility? Check out my go-to guide!

The best fertility books to read in 2022, 1. best fertility book if you’re just starting out — the fifth vital sign.

There are honestly A LOT of good books out there around the topic of your period, menstrual cycle and female hormonal health, which are instrumental as far as fertility is concerned.

This is because your period, menstrual cycle and hormones are all involved in helping you ovulate each month, which is your fertility window in which you can conceive. Understanding your body and these processes will go a long way in not only naturally priming your body to have a baby, but in optimizing almost every area of your health and life.

The Fifth Vital Sign is my top choice, as it covers super important topics like how to identify menstrual cycle issues that could unknowingly hinder your fertility as well as optimizing your period and cycle health for maximum fertility health in a scientific, beautiful and practical way.

I also love Woman Code as a comprehensive menstrual cycle guide with tools to help women maximize hormone and fertility health.

2. Best Fertility Book For Tracking Ovulation — Taking Charge of Your Fertility

Not gonna lie, this book is somewhat of a beast to read, but I’ve found there’s nothing more comprehensive out there when it comes to charting your cycle in order to optimize fertility awareness and pinpoint when you ovulate.

This is such a necessary component of the fertility journey, as these fertility awareness methods are the only accurate way to know if/when you’re ovulating to maximize chances of conception (spoiler alert: an app or OPK’s can not actually confirm ovulation).

I recommend opting for the physical copy vs. audible, as there’s tons of helpful charts and visuals.

3. Best Fertility Book for Fertility Diet Tips + Recipes — Fertility Boosting Fundamentals Guide  

Full Disclosure: I wrote this e-book, so obviously I’m somewhat biased here, lol. That being said, as someone who LOVES food I’ve found a huge gap in the hormone health space when it comes to fertility diet recipes. If I’m gonna cook something, I want to rest assured it’s not only going to effectively optimize my hormone health but also look beautiful, taste delicious and be easy to make (so that I’ll actually follow through with cooking it).

If you’re looking for ways to incorporate more fertility boosting foods and recipes into you AND your partner’s lifestyle, then this book’s gonna be your jam.

4. Best Fertility Book If You’re Coming Off Birth Control — Beyond The Pill

Coming off birth control is no joke , and unfortunately the longer you’re on it, the longer it can take to heal any underlying hormonal imbalances that might be messing with your fertility (with lots of no-so-fun symptoms like acne or pms resurfacing along the way).

Dr. Brighten is my #1 resource for all things hormonal birth control, and her book will give you all the tools needed to help you limit post-birth-control-withdrawal symptoms and naturally get your cycle (and ovulation!) back on track.

5. Best Fertility Book To Help Heal Hormonal Imbalances — Hormone Intelligence 

Dr. Aviva Romm is one of my all-time fave professionals (Yale-Trained, Board-Certified MD) in the hormone health space, and her new book is an absolute must for anyone looking to further their knowledge around menstrual health and female hormones.

I especially love how actionable the book is, with charts, graphs and self-assessment forms as well as plenty of helpful information to help you heal any hormonal imbalances that could be hindering your fertility.

6. Best Fertility Book to Read If You Have Endometriosis — Know Your Endo

Speaking of hormonal imbalances, endometriosis is a painful condition that affects 1 in 10 women in their reproductive years and can make it exceptionally hard to conceive.

While I wouldn’t technically label it a “fertility book” I love that she offers a personal perspective throughout this book (as someone who was diagnosed with endo) as well as a super actionable and detailed plan to help any woman with endo lower inflammation and manage symptoms, which naturally work to boost fertility health.

7. Best Fertility Book To Read If You Have PCOS — Getting Pregnant with PCOS

As a nutrition and hormone health coach, I’ve worked with many female clients with PCOS struggling to get pregnant after years of being written off with a prescription for hormonal birth control (which masks and often exacerbates symptoms) or simply being told to “lose weight,” which is incredibly frustrating and NOT helpful.

I love that this book offers an evidence-based approach around resolving the root causes associated with PCOS in natural and actually helpful ways, as well as goes into depth on all medical treatments available (with the pros and cons for each) so that every woman with PCOS is empowered to pick the approach right for her.

8. Best Fertility Book To Read If You’re Suffering From Miscarriage or Pregnancy Loss — The Miscarriage Map

As someone who’s personally experienced pregnancy loss, I’m SO grateful this book exists. While not technically a “fertility book,” for me I found that before I was ready to try and conceive again I really needed to be able to healthily grieve and emotionally process my loss, and this book helped me do just that.

I also love that it’s written by a licensed clinical psychologist, but so real, honest and open it feels like I’m conversing with a friend who truly understands me. It also gives excellent advice for any woman looking to navigate difficult situations post-pregnancy loss such as baby showers or intimacy with partners, etc.

9. Best Fertility Book To Read If You’re Facing Fertility Challenges — It Starts With An Egg

This book is a powerhouse of science-backed information and a beacon of hope, offering both men and women a look behind the curtain at what’s REALLY impacting fertility and attributing to infertility challenges, recurrent miscarriage and failed IVF cycles.

Whatever fertility challenge you’re facing, this book gives detailed nutrition, supplement and lifestyle recommendations to support you on your path to a successful conception and healthy pregnancy.

10. Best Fertility Book To Read If You’re Seeking Infertility Humor + Support — Infreakingfertility

While technically not a fertility book, it IS an emotional survival guide of sorts for anyone looking for some light at the end of what can be a very deep, dark tunnel, offering support, humor and a therapeutic advice (in an un-cringey/not-cheesy super REAL way).

11. Best Fertility Book For Your Male Partner — How To Make Love To A Plastic Cup

Finally, a book from the male’s perspective, written for men! While I haven’t personally read this book, I’ve heard a lot of great things about it, and many women have reported it was the only book they could get their husbands to read about fertility (and that it’s not only incredibly informative but also really funny!)

Starting Your Fertility Journey: What to Expect and When to Seek Care

seated couple at appointment talking with their doctor

Conceiving can be a difficult journey for many couples or individuals. It has been estimated that 1 in 6 couples will have difficulty conceiving. So, when is the right time to speak to a specialist about it? If you’re in search of those answers, this is a good place to start. We spoke with Dr. Al Yuzpe, MD, FRCSC, Canada’s most senior Reproductive Endocrinologist and co-founder and co-director of Olive Fertility Centre, to highlight what to expect when you begin a fertility journey.

At what point is someone experiencing “infertility?”

Infertility is typically defined as “failure to conceive following 12 months of regular unprotected intercourse.” However, this definition only refers to a heterosexual couple. However, this definition should be modified depending on a number of factors including the age of the couple, the length of time they have been trying to conceive and their medical histories including surgeries (past and present).

A thorough fertility investigation will help determine whether there is a definable cause for a couple’s failure to conceive. In some cases, there is no definable cause. Those who receive this diagnosis are often referred to as suffering from “sub-fertility” or having “unexplained infertility.”

If you’re in a same-sex relationship, infertility is likely due to missing the egg or the sperm factor in the equation. This is a situational issue that can also be treated using Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).

What is the difference between a Reproductive Endocrinologist (REI) and an Ob/Gyn?

Reproductive Medicine and Infertility is a subspecialty of Ob/Gyn. After completing a residency program in Ob/Gyn (4-5 years), one must complete an additional REI subspecialty program in Reproductive Medicine to qualify as an REI specialist (2 years in Canada, and 3 years in the USA). Other countries have different requirements. So, while seeing an Ob/Gyn can be beneficial, REI’s have more in-depth knowledge on infertility factors, and with that, more answers.

When should a couple/person make an appointment with an REI?

Maternal and paternal age are important factors in fertility, in the risk of miscarriage, congenital anomalies, and other obstetrical issues.

If there is a suspicion of an underlying cause of infertility for the female partner, an REI appointment should be made even before pregnancy is attempted to ascertain whether there is or could be a relationship with the ability to conceive.

These underlying causes vary but can include an irregular or no period at all, a chronic medical condition, a previous pelvic infection or salpiningitis (PID), the use of certain medications, or difficulty/pain with intercourse.

Even with an absence of symptoms listed above, the female’s age and duration of trying to conceive without a healthy pregnancy should be taken into consideration:

  • If the female is less than thirty-five years of age, she should seek help after twelve months of trying with regular intercourse.
  • If the female is between thirty-five and thirty-eight, she should seek help after six to nine months of trying.
  • If the female is older than forty, she should at least have a consultation at the start of trying or no later than after three months of trying.

It is never too early to seek advice or help regarding fertility — the harm lies in seeking help too late. If there is any concern for infertility, preconception counseling is advised from either a family physician or Ob/Gyn. If there is still concern, most consulting physicians can order a basic fertility investigation.

The preceding guidelines should be of help for someone looking to better understand their fertility and what a journey may consist of.

A Typical Fertility Consultation

Most clinics follow a specific routine prior to the first fertility consultation. However, some clinics vary in their routines. You may be asked to have certain tests done in advance of that appointment. They may also ask both you and your partner to complete a medical history so that the physician you will be seeing will have a basic knowledge of your situation. It is very important to complete these forms since they will often affect the direction of discussion and the treatment plan and make the first visit much more productive and will allow for a more complete discussion of your particular circumstances. Be certain to answer all questions as completely and honestly as possible.

Before your appointment, make a list of your questions and concerns and be sure that all of them are answered or dealt with at that appointment. Ask about how your provider communicates – some prefer phone while others prefer email, some set aside certain times of the day for patient communication, others have a less structured approach, etc. Factors such as these can affect your experience.

The first visit is very important because, among other things, you will have the opportunity to form a rapport with your new physician. You should go into it openly and as comfortable as possible since this will enable you to discuss things freely and without reservation. If you have any concerns, make sure that your physician is aware of them. By the time you leave your first appointment, you should be aware of any tests that require completion. In some cases, a tentative investigation and treatment plan will be established at that visit.   

Remember, you are choosing the clinic that will be looking after you. You may want to know about the success rates associated with various treatments that they offer. A clinic that quotes the highest pregnancy rates may not necessarily be the right clinic for you. You may have had a clinic suggested to you from friends, Google reviews, etc., but keep in mind, each person’s fertility journey is unique. You are the one that needs to be comfortable with your choice.

Common Diagnoses as Causes of Infertility

There are several causes associated with infertility – some of which are female-factor related, some that are male-factor related and some that are a combination of the two. For that reason, a fertility investigation must include investigation of both the male and the female.

While not absolute, there have also been links to lifestyle factors that can impact fertility, some of which include smoking, obesity, low body fat, STIs, and others.

The Most Common Female Causes

  • Ovulation disorders — PCOS and other hormonal issues can cause ovulation failure, thus making conceiving naturally far less possible if at all without treatment
  • Tubal diseases — pelvic inflammatory disease or other issues with female organs can cause infertility
  • Endometriosis — may cause pelvic adhesions or endometriomas (a type of ovarian cyst)
  • Certain chronic diseases — endocrine disorders may play a role in conceiving and pregnancy
  • Uterine causes — congenital abnormalities, and uterine fibroids
  • Medications and other drugs
  • Advanced female age — this varies from one woman to another

The Most Common Male Causes

  • Sperm abnormalities — abnormalities in quantity, quality, or function of sperm
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED), reduced libido, dysfunction in ejaculation
  • Previous vasectomy
  • Associated medical illnesses – diabetes or other hormonal disorders
  • Genetic diseases — e.g. Cystic fibrosis
  • Medications or drugs
  • Advanced paternal age – often associated with reduced sperm quality and an increase in ED
  • Lifestyle issues – smoking, recreational drugs, and excess alcohol consumption may impact sperm quality as well as other hormones

Common Treatments

Before reviewing treatment options remember that you and your partner, if you have one, are going through a unique experience. Just because you know someone who tried a treatment plan that worked well for them, it doesn’t necessarily mean it is the treatment option for you. Don’t be discouraged by that!  If you are confident with the clinic you have chosen, then you should follow your physician’s advice and recommendations.

Your physician may suggest changes as simple as:

  • “You should continue to try on your own for a specified length of time”
  • “Adjust your frequency of intercourse”
  • A lifestyle adjustment – smoking cessation, weight loss/gain, etc.

Other treatments for the female may include:

  • Lifestyle adjustments – smoking cessation, weight loss including diet and exercise, adjustment of intercourse timing & frequency, complementary therapies including acupuncture, yoga, mind-body techniques, supplements (this is a controversial area)
  • Surgical intervention — for any underlying pathology which is amenable to surgery
  • Intrauterine insemination (IUI) — with or without associated medication for the female
  • Ovulation induction — for absent or infrequent ovulation or other menstrual disorders
  • Correcting or controlling any associated medical disorders
  • Assisted Reproductive Technology — IVF +/- any of its many variants (egg donor)
  • Weight stabilization — management of excessive weight or low body weight

Male treatments may include:

  • Specific supplements related to sperm production (antioxidants, zinc , magnesium, selenium, CoQ10, likopenes, etc.)
  • Lifestyle adjustment — smoking cessation, weight loss, adjustment of intercourse timing & frequency
  • Correction of underlying medical issues — improved control of diabetes, treatment of ED, etc.
  • Correction of sperm factors — varicocele repair
  • Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
  • Electroejaculation in the spinal cord injured male
  • PESA** — percutaneous sperm aspiration
  • MESA**or TESE** — microscopic surgical extraction of sperm   directly from the testis or epididymis
  • Assisted reproductive technology – IVF, ICSI

** Sperm retrieved by PESA, MESA, TESE is combined with intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection or ICSI

The Cost of Fertility Investigation and Treatment in Canada

Fertility investigation of both the female and male is primarily covered by provincial health insurance. However, not every test qualifies for this coverage. In addition, coverage varies from province to province. Be certain that you are well informed about what tests are not covered by the provincial health care plan and exactly what the cost is for a specific test. You should also be aware of any additional coverage that you have for a specific test or treatment by way of any extended health benefits, like Progyny, offered by your employer.

Fertility Testing

The basic fertility evaluation for a female can include:

  • HSG, SHG, and a hysteroscopy
  • Menstrual history, BBT, progesterone testing, LH testing
  • Hormone profile and genetic screening
  • Ultrasounds, MRIs, hysteroscopy or laparoscopy

The basic fertility evaluation for a male patient usually includes:

  • Volume of the ejaculate
  • Sperm count, motility, and morphology (shapes)
  • DNA fragmentation
  • Leukoscreen
  • Anti-sperm antibodies
  • Scrotal ultrasound
  • Hormonal and genetic testing
  • Testicular biopsy

Some clinics will add additional tests to those mentioned above. When there is more than one test noted to assess a specific fertility function, they all likely provide the same information. Your physician will choose the test that she/he considers the best for you. A complete general physical examination is also a part of any fertility investigation.

A fertility evaluation and the foray into potential treatment may seem overwhelming, but by asking questions, leaning on your support systems, and establishing a trusted relationship with your physician can help you take the first step towards your future family!

Helping you through yours

Fertility Coaching

Here at YFJ , we offer a very unique style of fertility coaching that you won’t find anywhere else. We combine our years of clinical fertility experience and knowledge, with our coaching skills to offer you a holistic support package of both emotional support and practical guidance.

With fertility coaching, women experience the benefit that reducing stress and improving positivity has on their general wellbeing when navigating a fertility journey. A 2018 study found higher levels of stress are associated with lower odds of conception for women (Wesselink et al 2018). Whilst this study does not prove that stress causes infertility, and in fact, there are no robust studies to date that do – rather that stress is a consequence of infertility, it does provide evidence supporting the importance of fertility coaching. Emotional support combined with evidence-based advice helps you to be better equipped for your fertility treatments and to move you along your fertility journey.
