Submitted by: AnonymousDo you remember when you first read “Our Bodies, Ourselves”? Tell us your story!
My mother gave me a copy of the second edition of Our Bodies, Ourselves when I was a teenager. She bought it when she was young, probably soon after she got married, and warned me that the medical advice would be almost 20 years out of date. But it was still worth a read.
I have enjoyed comparing new editions over the years. While the facts about what birth control is available might change, the content is always relevant.
In this series, readers tell their stories about their experiences with the book and its impact on their lives. You can view more stories and submit your own.
