Cycle Savvy - Toni Weschler

The menstrual cycle is a part of women's lives from a fairly young age, making it especially important for them to have age appropriate information available. There are many books available on the topic, some clinical and some more casual.

Weschler is known for her book Taking Charge of Your Fertility, which explains the various ways of learning the bodies fertility signs to chart ones cycle to conceive (or not) without the use of hormonal contraceptives. In this book for older teens, she explains these same details in an age appropriate manner and gives feel good advice on caring for oneself during various parts of the cycle, both physically and mentally.

I felt that Weschler handled the material in a sensitive, respectful, and relatable way. While reading it I found myself wishing I had had a guide to my fertility like this when I was a teen. Parents will want to personally review it before giving it to a daughter or other young woman, of course, but I highly recommend this book for young women who need to know a bit more than just the basics of her menstrual cycle coming once a month.
