Amy Steele of Entertainment Realm reviews In Our Control

June 30, 2010

From the In Our Control review at Amy Steele’s Entertainment Realm:

A decade ago, I had an exploratory laparoscopy and asked my gynecologist if she would complete a tubal ligation as well. She insisted that I wait a few years to think it over. I’ve always known I do not want children. I’ve never heard a biological clock ticking. When I saw a 29-year-old guy interviewed on The Today Show because he had elected to get a vasectomy, I fumed. Are all women supposed to WANT to give birth or expected to desire children? What could possibly be the reason why I was denied tubal ligation at 29 yet a guy could get a vasectomy?

I hadn’t heard much about IUDs and now I’m considering getting one. In Our Control: The Complete Guide to Contraceptive Choices for Women by women’s health writer Laura Eldridge provided me with detailed and enlightening information about the IUD that I didn’t know. Eldridge covers the Pill, IUDs, Plan B [the morning after pill], HPV vaccinations and more. Women’s health– particularly women’s sexuality and contraception– is rarely addressed to the extent it should be.

In Our Control doesn’t read like a scientific article but a wise and thoroughly researched expose on all aspects of contraception. Eldridge writes in a practical, often conversational format which should appeal to readers at all interest levels. … In Our Control should be kept on one’s bookshelf for reference next to Our Bodies, Ourselves and FLOW.
