“The Period Repair Manual” by Dr. Lara Briden ~ The Bible of modern medical menstrual Science & anti-establishment self help need to know info. If you’re struggling with conception this is also a must read.

My top 2 indespensable reference books that include wisdom on this topic but are not focused on it:

Women’s Bodies Women’s Wisdom by Christian Northrup ~ This is pretty much The Bible to me.  Essential & profound wisdom that covers a myriad of approaches to healing ~ rooted in psycho-spiritual but inclusive of clinical & modern information as well. Excellent glossaries & steps for healing any aspect of self.

Women’s Encyclopedia of Natural Healing by Tori Hudson ~ Luminary naturopathic doctor with in depth education on a myriad of healing options, protocol, & treatments for the full spectrum of sexual & reproductive health issues.
