Just what through the centuries have women known about how to regulate fertility by various herbs. According to historian John Riddle, around the 15th century the new intellectual, religious and legal climate forced such knowledge underground. Persecuted as "witchcraft" then and prosecuted as a crime in our own time, Riddle reveals that the control of fertility by "Eve's herbs" actually has been practiced by women since the most ancient of times.
