Summary: The story about a body in continuous transformation. This book unravels the mystery surrounding women’s biology and explains what is happening underneath the surface.

We all know that the female body changes cyclically every month during the reproductive years, and that it completely transforms during puberty, pregnancy and menopause. However, most of us ignore the fascinating details. What triggers those changes and what are the sometimes unexpected consequences?

The facts are as mind-blowing as entertaining. Based on the latest research, all information is presented in an easy to read manner with plenty of anecdotes; from historical prejudices to personal experiences, with some evolutionary ideas in between

I have always been interested in women’s issues and women’s health. I’ve read a fair number of books on the subject of women’s sexuality, women’s health and women’s anatomy. It is because of this that I find books I read now contain the same basic combination of information. However this book had new information I hadn’t heard anywhere else.

In this book you will learn about hormones, cycles from puberty to menopause, fertility, pregnancy and everything in between.

The book includes some fun illustrations and drawings to help you retain information. The book contains pages and pages of references so I feel safe in trusting what it says. The most interesting thing I learned in the book was that “women carry parts of their children (actual cells) with them forever after giving birth.”
